Thailand to enjoy pre-Asian Cup German camp

The Football Association of Thailand will send its Asian Cup squad for a two-week camp in Germany before the tournament starts in Bangkok on 7 July, FAT president Worawi Makudi told Tor Chittinand of the Bangkok Post. "Thai Asian Cup team will have their final training in Germany in June. They will spend about two weeks there. The national team's coach Chanvit Phalajivin and the team manager Kittirat Na Ranong will pick the best players for the the Asian Cup squad. I am sure that two weeks in Germany will provide useful experience for them. Normally fitness is one of the team's weaknesses. I hope the Germany trip will help the players get shaped up well," he said. Thailand will play against the Chinese national team on 16 May, the Netherlands on 6 June and Qatar on 30 June.
