Thailand U22 head coach faces injury worries ahead of SEA Games

Thailand U-22 head coach Worrawoot Srimakha faces injury worries of his players before the SEA Games football tournament starts next week.

Worrawoot has called up a provisional list of 27 players for training sessions, but he is likely to lose some potential stars, including henrop Samphaodi, Suriya Singmui and Chaiyawat Buran, due to serious injuries.

“We have several injured players and only three of them are fully fit,” the former Thailand international was worried about his players’ fitness, as quoted by Bangkok Posts.

Worrawoot has to fix his final 20-man squad before kicking off their campaign in Kuala Lumpur against Indonesia on 15 August.

The Thais had earned a 1-1 draw at the warm-up game with Hong Kong’s Eastern Sport Club on Thursday. They will leave for Kuala Lumpur on Saturday.
