Kiatisuk confirms aggressive approach

Thailand coach Kiatisuk Senamuang revealed that his charges will not be conservative despite their lead when they face Myanmar in the second leg of the AFF Suzuki Cup semi-final on Thursday.

The War Elephants trounced the White Angels 2-0 in the first leg in Yangon thanks to a brace from in-form Teerasil Danga. 

Despite this, Kiatisuk revealed that a win in Bangkok in front of a packed house is important for the fans, so that is what the team is aiming for.

"We already have a two-goal advantage but tomorrow is an important game and a win is the target," said Kiatisuk.

"We will not underestimate Myanmar. We got the win in the first leg but I've told my players to forget about that game and focus on tomorrow's match as we want to show a good performance in front of our fans.

"We're expecting a full house, it's good for Thai football and ASEAN football. We will aim for the win and go into the final.

"We've been working on our defence since the first leg but also our attack because we're playing in front of our home support. We want to play beautiful, attacking football so I can see our fans happy and enjoying the game."
