    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Thailand is ready to be a co-host with Indonesia for 2034 World Cup.

    "Yes, our country and Indonesian Soccer Association (PSSI) have considered to propose joint nomination to host 2034 FIFA World Cup," Thailand Soccer Association (FAT) chairman Somyot Poompunmuang stated.

    Somyot admitted that the standards of Thailand’s stadiums cannot be compared to those of Indonesian.
