Hot striker (June 20, 2007)


Young striker Teerasil Dangda has won praise from Thailand coach Chanvit Phalajivin and is likely to be included in the Asian Cup squad. The Thai team are training in Germany and Chanvit has been impressed by Teerasil's improvement.

''He gels with other players and has improved while training here,'' said Chanvit.

The coach has named an initial 30-player squad which will be reduced to 23 for the tournament to be held next month in Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore.

Chanvit is worried about Thailand's defence which is weak against aerial attacks and he will focus on the matter in the final phrase of training.
