It’s Thai time

It’s nearly time for a whole country to hold its collective breath.

There’s a Qatar friendly in August to get through first, but Thailand begin their bid to reach their first ever World Cup Finals on Sept 1 when they take on Saudi Arabia away. Five days later they host Japan at Rajamangala Stadium.

It will be a monumental task for the War Elephants to qualify from a group that also includes Australia, Iraq and United Arab Emirates.

But hopes are high that Zico’s men can make a defining mark in Thai footballing history.

To get you in the mood for the big games ahead, we have compiled profiles of 17 of the players that should figure in the qualifiers ahead, though we’re sure a few new names (and a few old ones) will emerge when Zico (who is also profiled) announces his first squad. You can view the profiles here.

One thing most people are agreed on, big names Theerathon, Chanathip, Teerasil and Kawin will need to be at their best for Thailand to have any chance.

Su su Thailand. A football-mad nation is ready for history to be made.
