Tameezee will join the Thailand National preliminary squad, where he will hope to make an impression and be retained for the matches against Saudi Arabia on November 11 and against Australia on November 15.

German coach Winfried Schaefer will be looking for at least four points from the two fixtures if his side are to have any chance of progressing to the next round of qualifiers.

Sarach will be part of the Thailand SEA under-23 squad that features another eight players from TPL Division One, where FC Phuket currently reside in sixth position.

The SEA Games are being held in Palembang and Jakarta from November 11 until November 22 and because of the number of Division One players involved, the decision has been made to postpone division matches in November until the weekend of November 26 and 27.


This, combined with the postponement of matches due to the heavy flooding suffered in various parts of Thailand, means that Division One clubs could be forced to play as many as 10 matches in the final month of the season unless it is extended into January.

Club captain Suphat Ontthong told The Phuket News that the team had been told to return to Phuket by November 1 and will face Saraburi away on either November 26 or 27.
