The Cambodia national football team (Khmer: ក្រុមបាល់ទាត់ជម្រើសជាតិកម្ពុជា) is the national team of Cambodia and is controlled by the Football Federation of Cambodia (FFC).[2] It was known as the Khmer Republic national football team from 1970 to 1975. It finished fourth in the 1972 Asian Cup, but is currently one of the weakest teams in the world and did not even attempt qualifying for the 2006 World Cup. The team was founded in 1933 and joined FIFA's ranks in 1953. One of Cambodia's best players was Hok "Jet" Sochetra. Earlier in the decade he was considered one of the top 2 strikers in South East Asia along with Kiatisuk Senamuang from Thailand.[3] In 1997, Hok Sochetra won the best player award in Southeast Asia in 1997 – the Golden Ball from Sanyo.[4]
