Thitipan Puangchan reports happy news to the Thai team before facing Malaysia

Thitipan Puangchan was excited to be named by the coach Nishino on the summon list to prepare for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers since he was absent due to an injury against Vietnam.

"I am happy to be back on the team again. In the past, I worked very hard. However, the coach did not summon me at the previous rally due to injury concerns", Thitipan said.

"My injuries are no longer hurt, and I am trying to increase the level of training. I usually choose warm-up exercises to check my physical condition. Currently, I want to focus on the club playing two matches in the J.League before returning to serve the national team".

In the match against Vietnam in the first round of the 2022 World Cup qualifying round in Asia on September 5, Thitipan suffered an injury and was replaced in the 74th minute. After that, he had to fly back to Japan to check the severity of the injury.

The 26-year-old midfielder was diagnosed with a hamstring injury and may have to leave the field for about 2 months. However, Thitipan's injury has shown signs of a quick recovery. He came onto the field for about the last 10 minutes of Oita Trinita's defeat to Vissel Kobe at the Emperor Cup on October 23rd.

Thitipan Puangchan will meet up late with Thailand when there are 2 matches with Oita Trinita at the Japan National Championship (J. League 1). His team plays at home against FC Tokyo (November 2) and Gamba Osaka (November 10).

Before the injury, Thitipan was an indispensable factor in the Thai national team. As planned, "War Elephants" will focus on October 31 and take a short break for two days 5 and 6/11. At the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier, Nishino's army will have two matches against Malaysia (November 14th) and Vietnam (November 19th).
