Kiatisak Senamuang expects Thailand to get at least 1 point against UAE

Legendary Kiatisak Senamuang said that the score of the match against the UAE will greatly affect the results of Thailand in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying.

"To win a good result against the UAE is not an easy task. However, Thailand must believe in themselves. The players must try to win at least 1 point in the next game", said the former Thai coach Kiatisak Senamuang answered Siam Sport.

"And if I win the UAE, I believe that Thailand has the right to dream of going to the top of the table. Closing the match with the UAE with a positive result also increases morale for the players before the clashes with Malaysia and Vietnam. South and Indonesia".

Currently, Thailand is actively training to prepare for the UAE match on October 15. In order to avoid leaking inside information, coach Akira Nishino regularly let the home team practice recently. The press is only allowed to work 15 minutes before each training session of "War Elephants".

During the preparation for the match against Vietnam in September, Mr. Nishino also made the same provision. This shows that the Japanese military leader is very serious about his work. He wants to do everything in the most professional and perfect way.

In Group G of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, the UAE team is considered the strongest team. They light the door to go into the third round thanks to the quality of the players and have a class superior to the rest of the competition. Therefore, the match against UAE is very important for "War Elephants".

In this match, Thailand are without top stars Chanathip Songkrasin and Thitipan Puangchan due to injury. Here are two players playing in Japan. However, Mr. Nishino welcomed the return of veteran spearhead Teerasil Dangda, and added 17-year-old "prodigy" to Suphanat Mueanta.

At 19h on 15/10, Akira Nishino's team will receive the UAE on Thammasat yard. "War Elephants" and the UAE have both competed in 2 matches and 4 and 6 points respectively.
