Cambodia: World Cup Woes

Vutha in Cambodia discusses the seedier side effect of World Cup – gambling. “Bet on footbal was a driven force to make my youngest brother to drop out school and sold his motocycle for betting football match. Before this problem happened I always told him to stop betting football. One day, he did not stay at home for a few days. I tried to look for him but when he came back without his motocycle. And then I asked him where your motocycle was. He responded to me that he lost football match.”
