Cambodia qualified for the 2016 AFF Suzuki Cup on Friday night after recording a 3-2 win over Timor-Leste in their final qualifier at the Olympic Stadium in Phnom Penh.
The Cambodians will play in Group B in next month's Southeast Asian championship against co-hosts Myanmar, Malaysia and Vietnam. They open their campaign on Nov. 20 against the Malaysians in Yangon.
The Angkor Warriors got off to a dream start when Tith Dina fired them ahead in the second minute before Chan Vathanaka netted 15 minutes later to put them firmly in control of proceedings.http://www.malaysiasun.com/index.php/sid/248759533
I walked over too see if I could get a ticket to give it a watch. it had been raining, so I left just before 6:30 start. what a mad house. it looked pretty sold out, but I didn't get in. It's pretty dark (very bad layout/setup from what I could tell for people moving), around the side (north) I was walking around and there was mud everywhere (and most khmers in flops!). I tried to walk up to a couple of what looked like entrances or ticket booths (it was too dark to see from how far back you were due to the crowd), but there was a big crowd at every one 30-40 people deep, so I gave up and walked back to the apt to watch on tv. (I can hear the cheers from where I'm staying). didn't give it enough thought to try and buy a ticket earlier in the day, although I'm not sure it would have helped get in. it might have just been the weather creating a lot of late arrivals. sounded like the folks were having a good time. sorry I missed it. If anyone has some info on how to get ticks ahead of time or better places (gates) to get in, it would be worth sharing.
A taste of the bait is worth the pain of the hook.....
