HWC Chile 2014

Team Cambodia win the hearts and minds of Santiago public. Whilst all the team were stars in their own right and it doesn't seem fair to single out one above the other its very hard to explain what a huge impact Langeng had on every single person he met or who had the pleasure of seeing him play. Officially the smallest player in the tournament at 4 foot 5 inches he has the heart of a giant and the soul of a warrior. He scored 23 goals in 13 games and was our leader on the pitch.

Off the pitch he had a smile that could warm the coldest of hearts. Everyone wanted a picture with him and he was very accommodating to all the requests. A top footballer and more importantly a great young man. Langeng grew up on the dumps of Phnom Penh and to see where he is now, is a great credit to our partner Cambodian Children's Fund.
