In the second match of Group C of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifier (AFC), Cambodia received a very strong opponent, Bahrain, at home. Nevertheless, Honda coach still confidently launched an attacking squad with prominent stars such as Sieng Chanthea, Cheng Meng, Sos Suhana or Keo Sekpheng.

However, the young Japanese strategist allowed his students to play defensively and wait for counterattack situations. Discipline in the game helped the Cambodian team's defense successfully prevent all the braking phase of Bahrain in the first half.

Entering the second half, coach Helio Sousa changed tactics and helped Bahrain to constantly threaten Keo Soksela's goal. Despite great efforts, the Angkor warriors kept a clean sheet for 70 minutes, before letting Abdulla Yusuf Helal close the ball, opening the scoring in the 71st minute.

In the final minutes of the match, Coach Honda constantly changed personnel to renew the Cambodian attack. This gave Sieng Chanthea or Keo Sekpheng some chances to face goalkeeper Sayed Mohammed Abbas, but both failed to score. In the end, Cambodia accepted to lose to 0-1 Bahrain.
