Phnom Penh Crown pulled off an incredible performance to record their biggest away win of the season as they put five goals past Electricite Du Cambodge (EDC) at the EDC Stadium to snatch all three points.
Two goals from the first half and three in the second period of yesterday’s contest see Phnom Penh Crown run out five goals winners against Electricite Du Cambodge in an away match that they took control of.
Paulo Victor’s penalty and Electricite Du Cambodge goalkeeper Khuon Udom’s own goal mean Phnom Penh Crown bring two goal advantage into the interval.
Ouk Sothy bagged his first league goal of the campaign with a great header from Brak Thiva’s perfect free-kick delivery to extend Phnom Penh Crown’s lead to 3-0 before Lim Pisoth made it 4-0 with a low effort.
Va Sokthorn edged past Electricite Du Cambodge goalkeeper Khuon Udom before he set up Zath Rozak’s first league goal of the season in the stoppage time to seal an incredible 5-0 win over Prak Vuthy’s side.
Va Sokthorn praised Zath Rozak and Lim Pisoth for their maturity and confidence during yesterday’s match as the youngsters registered their name on the score sheet after they came off the bench in the second half.
Va Sokthorn told ppcfc: “I think we did well, and we came here to win three points. We had prepared well during two weeks. We have shown that we can do well even we play small or big teams. We can compete with them.
“They [Rozak and Pisoth] grow up, and with the coach they improve their thinking, and they have more confidence to play. We all feel better every day and week at the training, and you can see [team improvement] in the games.
“I had a back injury, but now it starts to be better. I am working hard every day. I am working hard to be back to the national team, and that’s my hope.”
Another three important points from yesterday’s comprehensive win help Phnom Penh Crown move from seventh place to sixth in the Metfone Cambodian League table.
