When Thailand kicks off his 2016 AFC U-23 Championship campaign to battle for a ticket to Rio 2016, you don't know really what to expect. Are they really a dark horse or will they be already eliminated after the group stage? A ticket for Rio, however, seems out of reach.

Of course, the question can only be answered at the earliest when the group stage is played. But from an early exit, to a surprisingly good tournament, everything is possible for Thailand's U-23. But many things must fit together. The preconditions are not bad. But there are also doubts.

Just two weeks to go until the football tournament of the 28th SEA Games tournament is going to kick-off and Thai coach Senamuang just recently announced his 23-man-squad for the title defence mission. Surprising call-ups were not amongst them.

It was last Friday when Thai coach Kiatisuk Senamuang announced his team for the 28th SEA-Games. Looking at the selected players, there are no big surprises. Which was perhaps down to the fact that Senamuang had by far less headaches by thinking about how to split off his players between the senior side, for the World Cup and Asian Cup Qualifiers, and the under-23 for the Southeast Asian Games.

AFC U23 QualifierFollowing the draw to the World Cup and Asian Cup qualifiers, a day later the draw for the SEA Games football tournament took place last Wednesday.

Thailand, drawn into Group B of the SEA-Games where the titleholder is favorite to win its 15th Gold-Medal, will have to face Malaysia, Vietnam, Laos, Brunei and East-Timor. In Group A are: Singapore, Indonesia, Myanmar, Cambodia, the Philippines and with Indonesia the finalist of 2013. As usual, and although this year with six and five teams in each respective group, the two best ranked team of each will advance to the semi-finals.

Flying to Qatar, going to Brazil (News)
Topic: Thailand U23
AFC U23 QualifierWho wants to go to Rio has to go to Qatar first. Seems logically somehow. Because since recently the small Emirate of Qatar counts as the new hub of the sporting world. And the Christmas World Cup 2022 of course. However, Motörhead's classic "Going to Brazil" would still need some rewriting to function as an accompanying song. "Flying to Qatar, Going to Brazil". Or so.

What we are talking of are the AFC U-23 Championship which is going to take place in Qatar and is the qualification tournament to the Summer Olympics in Rio the same year. But before anyone from Asia get's his ticket to Brazil via the desert, one must come through the qualifying round. And for Thailand it means that they will have to overcome North Korea, Cambodia and the Philippines first. For the Thais a putatively easy task, at least on the paper. Particularly with the advantage of hosting its group in Bangkok.

Thailand's U22 will return home unsuccessfully from Laos where they hoped to qualify for the Asian Championship 2014. However, the way of Mano Polking's team doesn't end here.

China and North Korea went into the qualification tournament as favorites and came out on top eventually. Thailand lost its opener against North Korea, which inherently is a book of seven seals and therefore hard to judge, by 2-4. Though it was to be expected, however: "North Korea were not unbeatable. But many things didn't gel in the first game and unfortunately we were punished by too much easy individual mistakes heavily" as Sasha Schafer commented towards
