"Taijin No Sato" by Football Tribe Thailand
by Jedsada Chanapinijwong, the deputy editor of Football Tribe Thailand
First I have to say arigatou gozaimasu to you all. Why I have to say "Thank you" in Japanese? Because nowadays, Thai football fans give and attention to Japanese fiitball! Yes I mean J League, the strongest league in Asia.
After Chanathip Songkrasin became the pioneer who landed in J League last season, this year Teerasil Dangda and Theerathon bunmathan also joined J League, which has made Thai fans more interesed in Japan football.
Theerathon Bunmathan with his new nickname “Boonjung” played for Vissel Kobe against Sagan Tosu but he started only on the bench. Then Takayuki Yoshida gave him a sign to be ready to step on the pitch with 15 minutes left and he showed his dynamics and confidence.
On Saturday, these Thai players faced each other as Sanferse Hiroshima of Teerasil Dangda play against Consadole sapporo of Chanathip Songkrasin. In Thailand, people in Bangkok will gather at Siam Square.
On 28 minutes, the Thai striker found the net first time in J league with the header. Just like that, Teerasil Dangda became the first player who scored in J League while Chanathip Songkrasin seemed a bit complicated with the new style. Mihailo Petrovic in the end replaced him with Shuhei Yomoda.
All Thai player started in their first matches already and one of them scored. As the famous saying goes, “well begun is half done.” We have to wait to see how far they can go, as this is just the first step of “TAIJIN in J league” (TAIJIN Thai people in Japanese).
