HWC Mexico City 2012

Team Cambodia took part in the Homeless World Cup for the fifth year in a row and we now feel like part of the Homeless World Cup family as we met up with many familiar faces from the competing countries. Our Mexican hosts did a fantastic job and the accommodation and local guides were superb. The Cambodian team gave their all and Coach Jimmy did a great job ensuring they were so fit and fighting for every ball. With the smallest and youngest team in the event as well as only having five players instead of eight like the other countries taking part to finish 32nd overall is a great achievement.
