Besides the reward, announced by Football Association of Thailand (FAT) president Gen Somyot Poompunmuang yesterday (Nov 7), the team also welcomed defender Tana Chanabut back to training for the first time since he was injured against Iraq early last month.

The national team are also preparing to defend their title at the Southeast Asian championship, known as the AFF Suzuki Cup, in the Philippines from Nov 19-Dec 17.

Somyot said, “I know that anything can happen in the match [against Australia], but I want them [the Thai team] to play with their heart. I don’t want them to play for money. I want them to play for His Majesty the King [who passed away last month].”

It would be a big surprise if Thailand get a result against Australia, who are currently second in Group B of Asia’s final qualifying round for the 2018 World Cup.

Thailand are still looking for their first point, having lost to Saudi Arabia, Japan, the United Arab Emirates and Iraq.

At the Thai team's camp at Kirin Valley in Khao Yai, coach Kiatisak Senamuang said that Tana had started training with the squad but the defender was not fully fit yet.

Kiatisak said some of his men were now 100 per cent fit and the rest were close to hitting their peak.

“Some players still need more time to regain full fitness but we are not rushing anyone,” he said.

“At this moment, we cannot say which players will be used in the match against Australia. It will depend on our game plan.”

Kiatisak said he was “quite disappointed” that Buriram United had decided to pull Narubadin Weerawatnodom out of the national team.

The defender injured his shoulder during training recently.

“We had asked the FAT president to negotiate with Buriram to let Narubadin train with the team, but the club refused,” Kiatisak said.
