Chan Vathanaka returns to Cambodia ahead of Vietnam clash

Chan Vathanaka will return from Japan to prepare for the 2019 Asian Cup qualification against Vietnam on 5 September.

According to reports from Cambodia, J.League 3 side Fujieda MYFC have allowed Vathanaka to join the training sessions with the national team squad ahead of Vietnam clash.

After joining Fujieda MYFC of the J3-League from Boeung Ket Angkor, the Cambodia football star is expected to improve his performance and growing his fan base in Japan.

However, the 23-year-old midfielder has yet to make his first appearance in a league game, and football fans in Cambodia are asking him to return home.

The Kouprey Blue is standing in the second place in Group C with three points after a win over Afghanistan on 14 June. This important win helps the team leapfrog Vietnam in the group with 1 points splitting them.
