The Shepard's 28 against the All-Stars

Thai National Team


Thailand's preparation for the AFF Suzuki Cup in November starts next Monday. Winfiried Schafer called up 28 players to report on Monday 13 August.

A warm up match against a selection of Thai League foreign players will mark the kick-off for Thailand's preparation for the Suzuki Cup. Therefore Thai national team coach Winfried Schafer called up 28 players this week to report for camp on Monday 13 August. Taking a close look at all the nominees, you almost wont find any big surprise. Apart from the usual suspects the German called up Peerapong Pichitchotirat of Bangkok Glass, his first one under Schafer, and shooting star Napat Thamrongsuphakorn from Samut Songkhram FC. For latter it is his first call up for the seniors in general.

Initially it was planned to call up 18 foreign players from the Thai Premier League only. However, the plan changed as finally 22 players have been called up. And they are not even from TPL clubs only with eight players elected from Division One sides. Pretty noticeable, most of the players are from clubs which based not farther than a 2 hour drive from Bangkok. A proper selection of TPL and Division One players for the All-Star team surely would have look different. Nevertheless, Douglas Cobo from Sriracha FC, for example, takes it serious. He feels honored and is pride of his nomination.
