HWC Paris 2011

Team Cambodia took part in the 9th Homeless World Cup in Paris. The players had an amazing time in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The team gave their all on the pitch, winning three games against Sweden, Canada and Japan. At times we struggled against some of the European and South American teams whose superior skills and greater physical size made it difficult to compete but the players gave their all in every game and you cant ask for more than that.

Off the pitch the fans loved the team because they tried so hard, despite being the youngest group there and having the smallest player in the event, the only and only Sreng Hem. Sreng ended up being our best player. In the first few games he was starting on the bench but the end of the tournament he was the first name on coaches Jimmy Campbell's team sheet.
