Striker Sarayuth left out of World Cup qualifiers (04/11/2011)



Thailand coach Winfried Schaefer has surprisingly left striker Sarayuth Chaikamdee out of his squad for two World Cup qualifiers.

With Thailand's top marksman Teerasil Dangda out injured, Sarayuth was expected to lead the Thai attack.

Instead, forwards Surachart Sareepim, Pipob On-mo and Sarawut Masuk are in the team as is Teerathep Winothai who has just returned from a long-term injury lay-off, when Schaefer announced the 24-man squad yesterday.

Midfielder Datsakorn Thonglao, who is nursing an injury, is also in the team who will travel to Saudi Arabia on Nov 11 and host Australia on Nov 15 in Asia's qualifying round for the 2014 World Cup.

Schaefer said Teerathep was unavailable for the Saudi Arabia match but could feature in the Australia game in Bangkok.
