NOT the World Cup but the AFF Suzuki Cup - Thailand yesterday played with great spirit and resilience in beating Indonesia 4-2. After going up 2-0 they conceded to 2-2 before completing their triumph. Teerasil scored a hat-trick including one brilliant drive from the edge of the penalty area.

Thailand's next game is against Singapore on Tuesday 22nd at 3pm - Channel 7 ?

Thailand outplayed a hard running Myanmar side and Teerasil scored two great goals.
So a 2-0 advantage for the home leg on Thursday, 7 pm, Channel 7.
Last night's game was really enjoyable. TW did you see it ?

Yes Roger, real gulf in class. I actually felt sorry for Myanmar. Thailand played at about 30% of their potential. That was all that was needed!!

Just MHO but after Thailand took a well deserved lead - a brilliant header from the on-fire Teerasil, I thought Indonesia were a bit lucky to get level with the aid of a horrendous deflection off a Thai defender's back.
Nevertheless with their wind in their sails, Indonesia asserted themselves and the Thai team seeming to lose confidence. Indonesia were 2-1 winners.
Thailand looked really good until the equaliser came.
Come on Thailand - your chance in the return leg ?

Could be a very interesting 2nd leg Roger. If Indonesia park the bus and counter attack,Thailand could struggle.

Thailand did the necessary and beat Indonesia 2-0 to take the AFF Cup for the 5th time.
Indonesia put in another spirited performance but Thailand played some really good passing movements to help the 'burly' Sirod score 2 goals - the first looked lucky and the second was a great shot. Plenty of fancy footwork on show.
Teerasil was top scorer in the tournament with 5 and midfielder Songkrasin was nominated the outstanding Player.
Well done Thailand - I thought it a great game to watch.
