The Indochina Cup, between Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand is scheduled for 22 November in Phnom Penh.
Earlier in the week, a rumour circulated that our booking for the oval at Phnom Penh’s International School would be bumped for another event. Although our booking is 95 per cent safe, Eggo is currently seeking absolute confirmation because, as he says, ”there is no alternative to this ground as nothing is big enough - that hasn’t been cleared of landmines at least”.
Steering clear of the landmines sounds like a good idea.
The Thailand Tigers’ President, Rhino, has offered Bangkok as an alternative venue if required.
But he adds, “Ideally, we would love to go to Phnom Penh and assist getting footy buzzing in Cambodia. Look what we (Vietnam and Thailand) did for Laos. Got so much buzz that they beat both of us in Singapore (at the 2008 Asian Champs)”.
Saigon President of the Vietnam Swans, Scott Stacey replied that “Vietnam’s Party-endorsed official stance is that there was no Singapore”.
The Indochina Cup is going to be b-i-g.
