Facing mighty Thailand in the third-place volleyball match, Cambodia’s men played one of the best games in their career, shocking their opponent with an intense five-set win at Dai Yen Sports Complex in Quang Ninh Province on Saturday.
The match was exciting from the very first attack, with Thailand continuously taking the lead. However, brilliant form by Cambodia’s Sarun helped his team shorten the gap before completing a great comeback with a narrow 25-23 win in the first set.
Despite the shock loss, Thailand kept their nerve and continued to dominate the second set. Once again, Cambodia fought back fearlessly, but the Thais were more careful this time, shutting the door to another comeback for the men in white and yellow to grab a 25-22 win.
