Cambodia back on the Suzuki track

Cambodia registered a 4-2 won over Timor Leste to put their AFF Suzuki Cup 2010 qualifying campaign back on track in Laos on Sunday.



The Cambodians had been held to a goalless draw by Laos in their opening qualifier, but Khim Borey's hat-trick handed them a vital victory against a Timor Lesete side which is now rooted to the bottom of the qualifying table.

With two places up for grabs at December's ASEAN grand gathering, Chiquito Do Carmo gave East Timor the lead before Borey scored three times in a frantic 14-minute, first-half spell

Substitute Nuth Sinoun added a fourth for Cambodia, although a late Anggisun strike provided Timor Leste with some consolation.

Also on Sunday, the Philippines had the Younghusband brothers to thank after Simon McMenemy's charges battled back from the brink of defeat to earn a 2-2 draw with Laos.

Goals from Soukhaphone Vongchiengkham and Kanlaya Sysomvang had seemingly put Laos on their way to a crucial win.

However, Philip Younghusband pulled one back from the penalty spot in the 76th minute, and his elder brother leveled matters deep into stoppage time to leave the Philippines top of the four-team group on goal difference from Cambodia.

The top placed team from the qualifying tournament will face Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, while the runners-up will play in Group B where they will be up against Vietnam, Singapore and Myanmar.

The final round of qualification games take place on Tuesday when Cambodia tackle the Philippines and Laos play Timor Leste.

Official statement from the Philippines National Men`s Football team
Mabuhay!

The Philippine National Men’s Football Team would like to offer to every Filipino this great triumph achieved in the football fields of Vietnam.

In the 14-history of the Suzuki Cup, the Philippines only qualified twice in the biennial competition that is at once the most prestigious tournament in the Asean region.

To get through the final rounds competition in Vietnam, we played three qualifying matches Laos where we finished second to the host country to advance to Vietnam.

And for the first time, we have advanced to the semifinals where the Philippines will play Indonesia in a home and away series where the winner, determined through the aggregate goal score, will play for the championship.

As we drew 1-1 with mighty Singapore and beat the defending champions Vietnam on their home turf 2-nil with 40,000 people in the stands cheering them on, we got word of how you, our fellow Filipinos watched us, cheered us, and sent us messages of support.

Believe us when we say that it was fantastic to hear and see all of that considering how the sport has largely gone unnoticed back home. We hope that this will be the start of football taking its rightful place as a premier sport In the Philippines.

As we drew Myanmar in a scoreless affair that saw us finish second to Vietnam in our Group, we received word that the Asean Football Federation has deemed that our homefield of Panaad, Bacolod to not be up to the requirements of the AFF Suzuki Cup after consultations with PFF President Jose Mari Martinez and therefore our hard-fought “home game” will be played either in a neutral venue or at the homefield of the other semis winner.

We deplore this decision that was arrived at without consulting the national team management team or even having the facilities inspected. We believe that this is an opportunity to provide Filipinos with a chance to watch some world-class football action that will inspire our countrymen to take up the sport and break new ground for the Philippines.

Just as you were all on our side when we were playing in Vietnam, we ask that every Filipino and football fan out there to express this indignation with regard to this decision in every venue, fora, or media so that we may treat the country to Azkals football. We implore you to express yourself on twitter, facebook, messenger, and everywhere else.

After all, the home field game is rightfully ours.
