The squad, consisting of a nice blend of experienced and young players, will relish their chances in Group C with Islamic Republic of Iran, Hong Kong, China and Palestine their opponents.
Kuala Lumpur: Thailand have not been able to reproduce their success at the Southeast Asian level on the continental stage and they will be determined to make an impact in Group F of the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023™.

Kuala Lumpur: Head coach Makram Daboub said he will pay attention to detail after Palestine were drawn in Group C of the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023™.
Set to make only their third appearance in the Finals, Palestine will face three-time champions Islamic Republic of Iran, United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong, China in their bid to make the knockout stage for the first time.
Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia's return to the AFC Asian Cup™ for the first time since they co-hosted the 2007 edition couldn't have resulted in a tougher draw - with Korea Republic, Jordan and Bahrain their Group E challengers.
Head coach Kim Pan-gon and his team, however, are relishing the challenge of taking on three sides who are all ranked way above the Southeast Asian side.
Kuala Lumpur: Denied a place in the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019™ knockout stage by the slimmest of margins, Lebanon are determined to enjoy an extended run at Qatar 2023.
