It would take a miracle for Cambodia to win any of the four remaining matches in its World Cup football qualifying tournament.
Home-and-home contests with Indonesia and China will be played over the next month, and the larger countries will be heavily favored. Cambodia can take some solace from a 1-1 tie it earned against Indonesia in the last World Cup tournament four years ago.
The two teams meet again at
4 pm Sunday in Jakarta at Bung Karro Stadium, which can hold up to 110,000 fans.
There were 30,000 in attendance on April 8 when Indonesia whipped the Maldives 5-0 in their only World Cup match to date. Five different players scored as Indonesia took a 2-0 lead after 15 minutes and coasted to victory.
Their second early goal was scored by Kurniawan Dwi Yulianto, 24, who spent two years playing for FC Lucerne in Switzerland before he returned to his homeland three years ago. He was the top scorer in the Indonesian league last year and led his national team to the finals of the Tiger Cup last November.
The other two teams in the qualifying group, Maldives and China, meet Sunday in Shianxi Provincial Stadium. Cambodia will host Indonesia on April 29 at Old Stadium.
