The FIFA world rankings aren't taken too seriously by some, but Thailand's position in 138th place shows you what Liverpool are up against here.
Rodgers' side have faced matches of differing difficulty throughout their preseason so far, with games against Preston North End, an Indonesian XI and Melbourne Victory all providing wins in various forms.
The manager will, of course, tell you that these matches are all about gaining fitness for the big kickoff against Stoke City at Anfield in just over three weeks time, but the Reds will want to win for their fanatical Thai supporters.
Three consecutive clean sheets during preseason will also have impressed and pleased Rodgers, but he might find that his team have a tough time keeping one against a side who demolished China 5-1 in an away friendly match just last month.
The Thais did lose their two 2015 Asia Cup qualifiers to Lebanon and Kuwait before that, conceding eight goals in the process, but ahead of these matches against the Reds and then Barcelona on August 7, the team nicknamed "The War Elephants" will be determined to put up a good fight.
For Liverpool, the match represents a midway point during a preseason schedule which will also see them face Olympiakos in Steven Gerrard's testimonial, travel to Norway to take on Valerenga and then face Celtic in a glamorous friendly in Dublin.
It is around about now that the players' fitness levels should be showing improvement, and getting another win on the board is sure to increase levels of confidence going forward.
The likes of Raheem Sterling and Jordon Ibe have impressed in preseason so far, and both will be looking to get into their manager's good books in a match in which the Reds will be looking to build on their eight preseason goals without reply thus far.
