According to information from Thanh Nien newspaper, The Thai team will not have the services of many key players at the Asian Cupincluding attacking midfielder Chanathip Songkrasin, midfielder Pansa Hemviboon, striker Suphanat Mueanta, striker Teerasil Dangda and midfielder Pokklao Anan.
Among them, Chanathip, Suphanat and Teerasil are all faces that are difficult to replace in the “War Elephant” attack. Therefore, it will not be easy for the Thai team to deliver the best performances in Qatar without top stars.
Commenting on the personnel situation in the Thai team at this time, female team leader Madam Pang expressed: “I don’t know if there will be any more national players injured in the coming days? In the match against Japan.” (taking place on January 1, 2024 in Tokyo), we do not expect the expected results, but through this match, the Thai team will learn from experience. The friendly match with Japan is a good experience for players”.
It is known that at the next Asian Cup, the Thai team will be in Group F with rivals Saudi Arabia, Oman and Kyrzgystan.
