Thai players take part in a training session at Windmill Football Club on Thursday.

The Thai national team continued to train for next month’s World Cup qualification on Thursday despite heavy rain.

Coach Akira Nishino spearheaded the war elephants as they trained at Windmill Football Club to prepare for the remaining three Group G games of Qatar 2022’s second Asian qualifying period in the United Arab Emirates next month.

“I try to work very hard and keep my performance consistent in hopes of forming the final squad.”

“I’m trying hard, but the atmosphere at camp seems a bit tense this time around. I think that’s because we’re preparing for important games like World Cup qualifiers and every player is interested in making a choice. ” .

“The coach is mainly focused on helping us get fit again and I think everyone is getting better and better. They are all showing good motivation and focus.

“I also try to focus on the daily training plans. I hope to be one of the players the coach will select to qualify in the UAE.

The remaining players from Chiang Rai United, Chonburi, Bangkok United and Buriram United will join the training camp on May 10th.
