Thailand, Bahrain, NZ join Vietnam's Agribank Cup

Thailand's national team coach Chanwit Pholchivin is hoping that his side will sweep away competition in the Agribank Cup, a friendly tournament that will kick off on Wednesday in Vietnam. In the quadrangular competition featuring the hosts Vietnam, Bahrain's U-23 side and New Zealand, Thailand will field almost the same squad that is scheduled to play in the upcoming Asian Games. Chanwit, who steered Thailand to their seventh successive SEA Games title last year in the Philippines, has set his sights on wining all the matches or at least claiming seven points in the tournament, the Nation reported.
