Soccer is a sport that many people like to play in the world. There are many kinds of sports for people to play, but soccer is the most popular for many Cambodians. They choose to play it for their exercise.


Kids, teenagers and almost everyone plays it whenever they finish from school or their occupation. Sometimes they just play it for friendship. Also they do play it and bet money. Many people say they would play harder if they are betting money. But it’s not really a kind of gambling, because they usually use the money that they win to buy some soft drinks. Most of the students when they have their day off from school, they usually invite or make appointment with other groups to have a competition.


Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in the world, but for the soccer ball it’s not that expensive for them to buy. Also we do have many places with big soccer fields to play so it should not be any problem for Cambodians to play soccer.
