Thailand restricted South Korea to a draw in the previous outing in the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

Thailand are currently second in the Group C of the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers with four points from three matches. They showed an impressive performance in the last outing to force a draw against the table toppers, South Korea. After opening the qualifying campaign with a loss against China, they have bounced back to collect four points from the last two matches. A win over Singapore and a draw in their previous game have put them back in contention for qualification to the next round.

With two wins and a draw, South Korea are among the heavyweights to qualify for the World Cup. Victory over China and Singapore has put them in great contention. The team must be disappointed to draw against Thailand in their last match after dominating both halves. They had a better chance of winning the game but lacked that potential finishing touch.

Tue, 26 March at 6:00 PM IST
