Surachai praises his side's performance despite loss

- +

Thailand coach Surachai Jaturapattarapong praised his players' spirited performance in their 2-1 defeat against Iran in Teheran in an Asian Cup qualifier on Tuesday. 

Two second-half goals in three minutes from defender Jalal Hosseini and forward Reza Ghoochannejhad put the Iranians clear with 20 minutes left only for Teerasil Dangda to pull one back in the 80th minute.

The loss virtually ended Thailand's hopes of reaching the 2015 finals although they still have a mathematical chance of earning a ticket to Australia.
