The Kingdom completed their missions in the tournament with three straight defeats, 0-13 to the US, 1-5 to Sweden and 0-2 to Chile in their last group stage game.
After failing to move to the last 16, the 47-year-old Nuengrutai showed responsibility by announcing her resignation after five years.
“We were unable to improve our results from the last World Cup (Thailand were also knocked out from the group stage in Canada in 2015). We have to accept that the other teams in our group are better than we are,” said Nuengrutai.
Team manager and benefactor Nualphan said“The coach and I already agreed that we will end our roles. It’s been a pleasure for me after 12 years being part of the team. Thank you all the players for the hard work and for their support,” said Nualphan.
“But I still support several players who have been hired by my company,” added the President and Chief Executive Officer of Muang Thai Insurance.
