After opening their SEA Games campaign on home soil with a 1-1 draw against Myanmar , the 2007 bronze medallists, the Lao women's squad is now looking to improve in their match against defending champions Thailand .

Facing Thailand this afternoon could be too early for Laos , but they are hoping the home advantage will spur them on to a good result.

Assistant Coach Viengsavanh Sengchanh said “The Thai side is another strong rival for us because they are the reigning gold medallists from the last SEA Games.”

“But we still have a 50:50 chance to do well in this match.”

“To know if we have a chance to get a medal we have to see the result of the first game today between Myanmar and Vietnam , then we have to see how we go.

“Our players are all fit and ready for the game today.”

The first match today will begin at 1:30pm between Myanmar and Vietnam , followed by Laos against Thailand at 3:45pm. Both matches will be played at the National University Stadium.

In the men's event, Timor Leste plays Thailand at 3pm and Cambodia takes on Malaysia , with both matches at the Chao Anouvong Stadium.
