Reid happy with current Thailand squad (November 03, 2008)


Thailand coach Peter Reid will not call up any more players for Saturday's friendly against Saudi Arabia in Riyadh.

The Thai national team returned home yesterday from the rain-affected T&T Cup in Hanoi, Vietnam and Reid said he was happy with his current squad.

"I don't think I will need any more players for the next match," said the Englishman.

"This is because the 20 players that I have now are good and we also have a good spirit in the team.

"It is of no use to me to call any more players for the team, unless some sustain injuries."

The team must report to Radisson hotel tomorrow and will train at Rajamangala stadium instead of the Nong Jok training camp.

Thailand only played one match in Vietnam - a 1-0 victory over World Cup hopefuls North Korea.

They had been scheduled to play their second match of the tournament against the hosts last Saturday but heavy rain forced the game to be postponed until November 16. If Thailand win the rescheduled game they will scoop 1,360,000 baht.
