Email from Kingdom of football after the friendly :
"from my perspective, they were defensively inept with the midfield and strikers unable to hold onto the ball, often passing to Cambodian players by mistake, and they allowed the home team to press forward almost constantly during the match. besides the late penalty they had two other shots on target, 1 in each half. after the loss in thailand i thought they must be poor, but on this evidence, they will be the whipping boys of the AFC cup. Cambodia are not a good team by comparison to the big guns in Asia but they were made to look good. I must admit i was surprised as Phils as a country have been producing some good results recently."
