Kiatisak calls for more goals
FOOTBALL: Thailand coach Kiatisak Senamuang is worried about his team’s lack of goals. The national side are training at Kirin Valley in Khao Yao for their World Cup qualifier against Australia in Bangkok on Tuesday (Nov 15) and the Southeast Asian championship, known as the AFF Suzuki Cup, which starts four days later.

Thailand have lost all four of their games in Group B of Asia’s final qualifying stage for the 2018 World Cup, conceding 10 goals and scoring just once.
“Scoring is one of our main problems and we must improve this,” Kiatisak said on Tuesday (Nov 8).
Thailand were originally scheduled to play Iran in a warm-up match on Wednesday (Nov 9) but it was cancelled.
“It’s a pity that we don’t have a warm-up game ahead of the match against Australia, so we divide into two teams and play each other,” he said.
