English FA plays down reports of Thailand game

England are not expected to play Thailand in a friendly fixture next year, according to the Football Association.

The FA were responding to claims from the Thai FA that FA vice-chairman Sir David Richards had confirmed England were to play.

An FA spokesman said: "Further to comments made by President of the Thailand Football Association Worawi Makudi, the FA today stressed that they do not expect to play Thailand in a fixture next year.

"Mr Makudi is quoted as saying that FA vice-chairman Sir David Richards has agreed to such a fixture.

"While Sir David has confirmed he was asked about the possibility of England travelling to play in Thailand by Mr Makudi earlier this week, he made it clear to Mr Makudi that any fixtures requests would have to be discussed by the appropriate departments within the FA and Fabio Capello before any fixtures can be agreed. Sir David wishes to make clear that he did not agree to the fixture.

"The England team's fixtures for 2009 are already arranged in principle and the only dates that could become available are in November 2009 - if England win the World Cup qualifying group and avoid the play-off fixtures.

"If England do find themselves as group winners, it is not expected we will play Thailand in November.''
