TOR CHITTINAND

Former national football captain, Therdsak Chaiman has been called up to join the 34-man squad for Thailand's warm-up match against China next Wednesday. Head coach Chanvit Phalajivin said there was only a limited time to get the team together because of league commitments but the team would do its best.


He said China would prove a good test as Thailand prepare for the Asian Cup.


''They are one of the best teams in Asia and will send their full squad.''


Team manager, Kittirat Na Ranong said the players would train together for only three days but at least it got the players together.


The match between Thailand and China will kick off at 6.30 pm at Rajamangala stadium. Tickets are available at Thai Ticket master (www.thaiticketmaster.com) priced 100 and 200 baht.
