Thailand coach Nuengruethai Sathongwien sets targets for Nigeria showdown

Having been drawn against the African giants, the gaffer has disclosed his intent ahead of his side's showdown

Thailand women head coach Nuengruethai Sathongwien says his side want to win Wednesday's Cyprus Women's Cup showdown with Nigeria at the Tasos Markos Stadium in Paralimni.

Chaba Kaew thrashed Hungary 4-1 in their opening game before they bowed 2-1 to Mexico and later heavily hammered 4-1 by Italy and finished third in Group B.

Ahead of the clash with the Super Falcons, the gaffer who led the team to 2018 AFF Women's Championship success, insists ending their outing on a winning note remains their top priority.

"I considered this a great opportunity to meet with a team from Africa," Sathongwien told the FA Thailand website.

"And for Nigeria, they are considered a team that regularly participates in the Women's World Cup and have a lot of [international] experience.

"We will meet the big, fast and good players again and makes us see weaknesses and have developed steadily.

"This game we want to win. In fact, we want to win in every competitive game. We have learned a lot from this tournament.

"Both being hit by a red card and losing two games. We have to know what each situation means to maintain balance."
