Thailand national team head coach Kiatisuk said in a recent interview that he didn’t Qatar is too strong an opponent for Thailand.
Thailand and Qatar will play in a friendly match on August 25 in preparation for the 2018 World Cup qualification. The former Hoang Anh Gia Lai striker said while he respects his opponent, he doesn’t think Qatar is “too strong” for Thailand.
However, the coach also gave his initial impression of the team, adding that he will also keep an eye on Iraq, Thailand’s upcoming opponent at the World Cup Qualification.
“I have studied the Qatar national team recently. Their squad is strong and balanced, with young players coming from the Olympic team, and also veterans who can help them to dominate the play”, the coach said.
