this is the cause of the Thailand U-23 national team failure They are in Group B. This is their worst record in the past 20 years. In the five times the Asian Games were held in 1998 to 2014, Thailand always managed to move from the group phase.
During the 1998 Asian Games, 2002 and 2014, Thailand had succeeded in occupying the 4th position. Whereas in 2006 and 2010, they made it to the quarter-finals. Due to the failure of the Thailand U-23 national team to go to the next phase, there are now many blasphemies and criticisms shown to the team, coaches, and also the Thai Football Association (FAT).
Despite failing to bring the Thailand U-23 national team to the next phase, Worrawoot Srimika will continue to be trusted as head coach. Because FAT says that one failure does not mean we have to fire him, because of the possibility that in the waiting period he will bring his foster children to a stage farther from now, if that happens whether you will insult him and tell him to come out.
"FAT will not listen to all the chattering that insults us. Besides, we can’t always replace a coach, if he fails to meet the demands we provide. Because we believe in him, and we will provide an opportunity to correct his failure.
"That is what Somyot Poompunmuang said as FAT President. "There is no such thing as players or coaches who want their team to lose, because they must do their best for the team. However, if there are those who want the Thailand U-23 national team to lose, surely it has a motive that we cannot know. In addition, we will make a decision based on the logic that exists, and we also ask the supporters to think logically too. "That was what he said.
The Thailand U-23 national team in this tournament was only able to get 2 points in the group phase, at the 2018 Asian Games. And Thai representatives only played a draw against Qatar and Bangladesh, while when they engaged in Uzbekistan they had to lose.
