Cambodia claimed a piece of history after taking its highest-ever finish in the tournament, following a 3-1 conquest of Timor Leste in the 2022 AFF Women’s Championship, Wednesday evening at the City of Imus Grandstand in Cavite.
The win put the Prak Vuthy-mentored side level with Laos with four points on a 1-1-2 win-loss record, but in third place in Group B on goal difference (minus-4 to minus-5). It is the highest the Cambodians ever placed in the tournament after placing fourth in Group A during their debut in 2018.
Cambodia bagged just its second win in the championship — four years after that lone win in the 2018 edition, which is, incidentally, a 12-0 drubbing of Timor Leste. Timor Leste, on the other hand, lost all their four group phase assignments.
