This is a great challenge but we will persevere and take home the full three points. I believe in my teammates and we will try to follow Nishino’s strategy. If we do our best, we will see a good outcome, that’s what we believe,” Chanathip said as he shared his thoughts on the matchup.

“We should play with determination in this match, and focus on finding the openings to set up teammates. We should try to understand their play strategically and predict the next move. I believe Thailand will do well in this match. I will try my best to help the team.”
