Japan play Turkey in the first Pool 15 game in the fourth week of action at the same venue.

Coach Danai Sriwacharamaytakul will have a huge task on his hands as he tries to rally his troops, who lost all three matches against the Dominican Republic, Germany and the United States in Bangkok last week.

They will face a Korean team determined to rebound as well following three straight defeats in Apeldoor, the Netherlands, last week.

“The team always play well in Korat (Nakhon Ratchasima),” said Danai, who, along with the players, paid their respects to Thao Suranaree at her statue in the northeastern province on Sunday (June3).

“Maybe it’s because we always pay our respects to ‘Ya Mo’ (Thao Suranaree) whenever we’re here and that lifts everybody’s spirit.

“Hopefully the fans will come out to give us support. We will try to do our best in all three matches and make the fans happy.”
