Thailand 2 Hyundai Ulsan 1

The King’s Cup kicks off in Nakhon Ratchasima on Sunday and will feature not just Thailand but also Denmark, Poland and Singapore. Not sure what kind of sides Denmark and Poland will be able to put out but I imagine that Singapore will be up for a shock.

In the run-up, Thailand won a friendly the other night against Korean club team Hyundai Ulsan at the Rajamangala Stadium here in the City of Angels. The game ended 2-1 with the winner coming just after the start of the second half. Manager Bryan ‘Robbo’ Robson apparently picked a combination of regular internationals and emerging players from the not so successful under-23 SEA Games team. A couple of good performances from Khun Robbo’s team would no doubt make his current position a little less parlous.
