Final warm-up against Chonbuk (January 31, 2008)


Thailand will field their strongest team in their last World Cup warm-up match against Chonbuk Motors from South Korea at Rajamangala stadium tomorrow. Kick-off is 6 pm.

The Thai team will face Japan in the World Cup Asia qualifying round on February 6 in Saitama stadium.

Thai coach Chanvit Phalajivin said the strikers would be Sarayuth Chaikamdee and Teerathep Winothai who are both in good form.

Three foreign based players, Sutee Suksomkit, Nirut Surasiang and Datsakorn Thonglao, will take up the midfield role while Kiatprawut Saiwaew will be the key player in defence.

''I am sure it will be an entertaining game as all our players want to display their best form,'' Chanvit said.

He also said that the team's two-week training stint with Manchester City earlier this month had proved very useful.
