Phnom Penh Crown retains the Cambodian League title after thrilling win over on Saturday night at Olympic stadium.

The defending champions Phnom Penh Crown started the second leg of the 2015 Cambodian League against Naga World with 2-0 advantage from first leg.

But Sam Schweingruber’s men failed to control the match as Naga World fought back strongly to maintain their hope to claim the first title after 6 years.

Finally, Naga World converted the advantage on the field with the goal in the 54th minute thanks to Sun Sovannarith’s tap in.

Despite Thierry Bin levelled the score from the spot in the 71st minute, Naga World had another two goals by Kouch Sokumpheak to put the match into extra time as the aggregate score was 3-3.

No more goals were scored during 30 minutes of extra time that means two teams needed to kick from the spot to determine the winners. Goalkeeper Keo Soksela became the hero for Phnom Penh Crown as he pulled off three saves to help Crown retain the title with 3-2 win in penalty shoot-out.
