SEA Games 2019: Thailand U22 officially announced the list, no Supachok & Supachai

The Thailand U22 team has just released a focused list of many players, preparing for the SEA Games 2019 with the goal of successfully defending the gold medal.

Yesterday (October 27th), the Thai Football Federation announced a list of 25 players of Thailand U22 team preparing to participate in the SEA Games 2019, with the goal of successfully defending the gold medal in the men's football. This year's festival is first held in the Philippines.

The list of 25 U22 players in Thailand has many notable faces. Notably, the players who have won gold medals at the SEA Games 2017 are Worachit Kanitsribampen, Ratthanakorn Maikami, Peerawat Akkatam, Shinnaphat Leeaoh, Saringkan Promsupa still participating this tournament.

In addition, head coach Akira Nishino also filled in the 1m98 center-back Marco Ballini. He has an Italian father and a Thai mother, who grew up in the youth club of the Cesena club before returning to the Thai League to play football. However, the Japanese coach decided to put two stars Supachai Jaided and Supachok Sarachat for the national team in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign.

Therefore, whether the 4 stars Supachai, Supachok, Suphanat and Ekanit Panya will be added to the U22 team by coach Nishino to play in the SEA Games is still open.

Thus, coach Nishino did not call four excellent young stars of Thai football to the U22 squad in this summons. However, this can be explained by the fact that the "quartet" is still training in the national team to prepare for the next match in the World Cup qualifiers.

On the offensive line, Thailand U22 has the presence of striker born in 1999 Sittichok Paso. The striker had been to Japan to play in the J3 League for Kagoshima United. Sittichok Paso was selected by the British Guardian newspaper to be in the top 60 most promising young players of world football in 2016.

The midline of Thailand U22 is also highly evaluated with the participation of national player Anon Amornlerdsak (Bangkok United), Buriram United's key midfielder Ratthanakorn Maikami and the experienced face Worachit Kanitsribampen (Chonburi).

The goal of Thailand U22 at the 2019 SEA Games in the Philippines is no different than successfully defending the gold medal. The team of coach Akira Nishino is in Group B and will compete with Vietnam U22, Indonesia U22, Singapore U22, Laos U22 and Brunei U22.
