With Boeung Ket FC out of the Hun Sen Cup competition, the reigning Metfone Cambodia League champions were afforded a week off before the start of the international break.
But there is sad news for Cambodia international forward Chan Vathanaka as the playmaker is still struggling with injury and has been left out of the 23-member Cambodia national team squad to face Malaysia on September 10. Newly-appointed head coach/general manager Keisuke Honda will be present for the friendly despite playing in Australia with his club Melbourne Victory.
Nonetheless, 24-year-old CV11 is taking everything in his stride. The Rubbermen number 11, who was clearly distraughted by his injury on social last week, was in high spirits this week as he shared supportive fans photos on his Facebook wall.
