Thais spurred by chance for revenge against Indonesia

THAILAND - The Thai side, the most successful team in the history of biennial tournament, opened their campaign in unconvincing fashion with a 3-1 victory on Saturday over unheralded Timor Leste, a side they once thrashed 90.

Following a fourday break, the Thais now face a gruelling three matches in five days, starting with the clash against Indonesia, who finished runnersup two years ago as hosts.

The two sides are level on three points ahead of the match at Yangon's Thuwanna Stadium, after Indonesia beat Cambodia 1-0 on Monday. Former national striker Kiatisak "Zico" Senamuang hinted that he would make just one change to his side, with Buriram United midfielder Charyl Chappuis replacing Tanaboon Kesarat in a bid to give fresh impetus to Thailand's attack.
