Thailand coach Mano Polking has called up Sumanya Purisay to replace Sarach Yooyen in his King’s Cup squad.
BG Pathum United midfielder Sarach was injured during their 2-2 draw with PT Prachaup in Thai League 1 on Sunday.
“It is a pity that we will not have Sarach but I think his absence won’t affect our team much because Sumanya has been playing very well for Chonburi,” Polking said yesterday.
The War Elephants, led by Japan-based stars Chanathip Songkrasin and Supachok Sarachart, arrived in Chiang Mai yesterday.
The four-team tournament will be held at Chiang Mai’s 700th Anniversary Stadium from Thursday to Sunday.
