SEA Games Football (Men) Preview

SEA Games

The time has arrived. The countdown is over. The world is watching Cambodia and the expectations are high.

The SEA Games 2023, hosted here in Cambodia will be nothing short of magnificent. The football event will be hotly contested with Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia the heavy weights. Malaysia are the outside bet and Cambodia have to be considered are dark horse being the host nation.

Group A

Indonesia Vs Philippines (KO 4pm)

True to form, the opening game is usually the host nation, Cambodia has given this honor to Indonesia vs Philippines instead.

Indonesia are one of the heavy weights and will want to start strong. The country only announced their squad 2 days ago due to rule changes and disputes, however they will still boast a strong squad ready to win.

The Philippines are not the threat they once were and will do well to get anything out of this game.

Prediction: 3-0

Cambodia Vs Timor Leste (KO 7pm)

The last chance for Honda to give some meaning to his reign and it will be a tough opening fixture, for many, the decider for second place in the group.

Timor boast strong attacking options with Mouzinho and Cambodia bound Elias & Jhon.

The home crowd will be up for it and I think that gives them the edge.

Prediction: 2-1

Group B

Thailand Vs Singapore (KO 4pm)

Thailand are heavy favorites and will want to start the tournament strong. Winning the competition in their neighbors backyard will be the ultimate achievement and despite losing 4 players to the new age rule they’re still do very strong.

Singapore frailties were exposed in the recent Merlion Invitational Tournament and the battle for 4th is the best they can hope for.

Prediction: 4-0

Vietnam Vs Laos (KO 7pm)

There is only one winner on this one and the question is rather buy how much as opposed to if they will win.

Prediction: 7-0
