Phnom Penh (FN), Dec. 11 – Cambodia did not win any medal from Men’s Football Tournament at the SEA Games 2019; however, the kingdom’s U22 breaks two records, including qualified for the semi-final and scored the fastest ever SEA Games goal.
For the first record, Cambodia's men football U22 advanced to the semi-final round in the 30th SEA Games. The brilliant second-half display gave Cambodia 3-1, winning over Malaysia in a match held at the Manila's Rizal Memorial Stadium on 4 December 2019. The victory serves as the finest accomplishment since the kingdom first joined the Southeast Asian Games in 1995.
