Bhutanese club Yedzin FC lost both the matches they played in the ongoing President’s cup in Cambodia. They conceded eight goals against Phnom Penh Crown and could not score even a consolation goal which was disappointing for fans back home.
In the first half Bhutan conceded three goals and in the latter half, five goals.
Khim Borey of crown Phnom Penh pulled a hat-trick in his opening game.
In the second match Muraev of Dordoi Bishkek FC scored five goals against Yedzin FC. In total, Yedzin FC was thrashed by 11 goals.
“It was a very poor performance by Yedzin FC. We hope that the number of goals against them will not double in the remaining matches,” said Wangchuk, a soccer fan.
Bhutan’s Yedzin FC, Phnom Penh Crown, Dordoi Bishkek and Nepal Police Club are placed in group B.
Dordoi Bishkek FC of Kyrgyzstan thrashed Nepal Police Club with five goals and Nepal’s only saving grace was a goal scored by mid-fielder Parbat Pandey.
Today Bhutan will play Nepal Police Club.
This has determined that host club and the giants of Kyrgyzstan are favorites of group B and they have already booked the place for the quarter finals.
Bhutanese supporters at home are keeping their fingers crossed. Yedzin FC fans at least want to hear that they have won against the Nepal cops, which is the last match at the group stage.
Meanwhile, the schedule for groups A and C of the AFC President’s Cup qualifiers has been changed after Sri Lanka Champions Ratnam Sports Club and Bangladesh league Sheikh Jamal Dhanmundi Club opted to withdraw from the competition.
