Thueanklang: Every team has an eye on us
Yogyakarta: Suphawut Thueanklang is not worried about having a target on his back as Bluewave Chonburi embark on their quest to retain the AFC Futsal Club Championship in Yogyakarta.
Bluewave Chonburi will open their title defence against Australian side Vic Vipers on Thursday and Thueanklang said the Thai champions are ready.
“We have just returned from our training camp in Japan and we are ready for the competition.
“Of course I will be under pressure as we won our second title last year. Every team will keep an eye on us. It will be tough games ahead but I will do my best."
Thueanklang scored a hat-trick in last year’s final, beating Islamic Republic of Iran’s Giti Pasand Isfahan 3-2 and the 2013 AFC Futsal Player of The Year is confident of defending the title in Yogyakarta.
“The most memorable memory was winning the tournament in Vietnam last year, where I scored a hat-trick in the final. It was really special for me. I will do my best this year.”
