After my visit to the SEA Games it dawned on me which team to select for the Asian Indoor Games (AIMAG). After an excellent start winning from Futsal giant Thailand, several players lost ground strongly.
I still have to find out why; was it because they already thought that nothing could go wrong anymore, was it the pressure or maybe the physical or mental condition? I have very few time between the two tournaments and have already handed in the list with the 25 names. But I’m out for the most part. At least I can start training now with 19 players instead of 31 because I have a realistic image from all of them.
Let’s say: on to the AIMAG where Thailand will search for a revenge after a defeat since a long time and having also strong opponents with Japan and Lebanon. But that’s a good preparation for the AFF qualification tournament in October in Vietnam.
