For the second time in a row Thailands U19 made it to the final of the AFF U19 Championships. Thailand than will take on Australias U19. Reaching the final was something unexpected for Thailand.

Thailand qualified due to 3 draws in the group stage. The first two matches, against Vietnam and Australia, both ended 1:1. A goalless draw with South Korea in the last game, sealed the final for the Thais. Heavy rain made it nearly impossible to see good moves in the match versus Vietnam. Natthawut Khamrin broke the deadlock right after the break. Substitution Van Thanh scored the well deserved equalizer 15 minutes close to the end. In the second match, Australia dominated the game, and netted in just 5 minutes after the Kick off. It took 40 minutes, when Thailand got their first Chance. Now Thailand was on level with Australia and Pattana Sokjoho from Thai Honda FC equalized in the middle of the second half.

To play the AFF U19 Final for the second time in a row, can be considered as a huge success. Head coach Chalermvud Sangnapol was without  several key players and less time to prepare. Amongst others, Surachet Ngamtip from Bangkok Glass FC haven't been with the team. Usually he is the skipper of the young squad.

Thailand now is having the chance to defend their title from last year. In last years final, the opponent was non other than Australia.
