Thailand's U23 national team supported with 4 key members from Muangthong United, yesterday defeated Jordan 2-0 and advance to the semi-finals where they will face host nation South Korea.
The War Elephants have a perfect record, and Muangthong keeper Kawin has not allowed a single goal in all 5 matches. Advancing to the smifinals is the best the Thai team has ever done at the Asian games, and there is optimism that this team has the quality to go all the way and win gold for the country.
The squad had a relatively easy group stage against Indonesia, Madives, and East Timor, and then in the round of 16 defeated China 2-0. Then last night the team put away Jordan with goals from Chanrakrit and Kokrit.
The squad now has one day of rest before the South Korean match. Broadcast details will be posted on mtutd.info shortly.
