Thailand coach Kiatisuk Senamuang believes his side is capable of winning a fourth AFF Suzuki Cup title after advancing to the last four with a 2-0 victory over Myanmar on Saturday.
Having already qualified for the semi-finals, Senamuang made several changes to his side for the final Group B match and his decision was vindicated when Tanaboon Kesarat and Prakit Deepromwer found the back of the net with stunning strikes from long range.
Senamuang was immensely proud of the way his charges performed throughout the preliminary stage after the recorded victories over Singapore and Malaysia before Saturday's win in Kallang's National Stadium.
"I'm so happy that we have got nine points out of nine," Senamuang admitted after the match.
"All three games have been difficult, but the players have done well.
"We now want to get past the semi-finals and into the final."
Meanwhile, Myanmar Raddy Avramovic was left somewhat disappointed by how his side performed throughout the event after securing just one point by virtue of the goalless draw against Malaysia.
Avramovic, a three-time AFF Suzuki Cup-winning manager, was particularly frustrated by the lack of composure in front of goal during the defeat to Thailand.
"I'm not saying we are a better team than Thailand, but we didn't deserve to lose this match," he claimed.
"We created a lot more opportunities than them, but couldn't get the finishing touch."
