The Joeys squad is today (Monday) on their way to Thailand as they ramp up preparations for this month’s AFF U-15 Youth Championships.

Coach Tony Vidmar has selected a 23-player squad for the tournament which begins on July 9.

The entire squad will have a pre-tournament training camp in Bangkok for four days before heading to Chonburi on Friday ahead of the championships.

“It’s the first time these players will be playing together in Asia so it will be a massive learning curve for them,” Vidmar said.

“They’ll be playing in tough conditions and have a match every 2nd day.

“This should prepare them for the qualifiers [2018 AFC U-16 Championship Qualifiers] in September.

“We will create a very challenging environment to see which players can stand up to the rigours of international football.”

The Joeys are in Group A alongside host nation Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Indonesia and Singapore.

The event is a lead up tournament to the 2018 AFC U-16 Championship Qualifiers taking place in September.
