Salute the Cup Winners

The Ministry of Defense team celebrate after their dramatic late cup success

The Army pulled off the cup shock most people were hoping for but they left it very late and nearly blew it before scoring the winner in a 3-2 success in the Hun Sen Cup Final with the last kick of the game. Phnom Penh Crown got back into the match when Chan Rithy was presented with a gift from Army keeper Samreth Seiha, a minute from time but the stopper could breathe again when Thong Oudom loped forward for a free kick in the dying seconds and saw his header loop over the despairing dive of the Crown keeper for the match winner.
On the balance of play the Army just about deserved it and the entertaining game was in keeping with some of the exciting football served up by this season's cup competition. I'll post a full match report later but just to repeat that final score, Ministry of National Defense 3 - 2 Phnom Penh Crown.
