Sutee and Therdsak to play part (November 12, 2007)


Thailand will call up Singapore-based Sutee Suksomkit and Therdsak Chaiman for the second leg of their World Cup qualifier against Yemen on November 18 at Supachalasai stadium.

The team arrived back in Bangkok yesterday after their first leg in Yemen which they drew 1-1.

Thailand coach Chanvit Phalajivin said his side had been troubled by the weather and the pitch in the Middle East and had been given plenty to think about for the decisive second leg.

''We have to work on defending against high balls and also our defence,'' he said.

Players will take part in Thailand League fixtures tomorrow and then return to the national squad for training.

Natthaporn Phanrit and Tawan Sripan are under consideration for the second leg.

''If we get all the players back with the full squad then our team will be strong,'' said Chanvit.

''I am confident that we will beat Yemen on our home ground and qualify into the next round.''

Tickets for the match are available at FAT headquarters and the FBT Sports Complex, Hua Mark and are priced 100, 200, 400, 600 and 1,000 baht.

Also, the Thailand SEA Games squad drew 1-1 with their Malaysian counterparts in a friendly.
