BANGKOK (Jan 27, 2002) – Thai coach Chanvit Polchivin may not field England-based striker Teeratep Winothai in the starting line-up for the match against Malaysia.
Teeratep, a talented striker who was also part of the victorious SEA Games squad last year, may be kept on the bench following his inability to combine with the other players in the team.
“I may only use him later in the game and I cannot take any chances against Malaysia,” Chanvit continued.
Malaysia, according to him, are wounded and could be dangerous. They will try to salvage some pride and try to stay in the hunt for a semifinal berth.
“We have to be cautious of them but we too want to win this match,” added Chanvit.
