Heberty Fernandes de Andrade, striker of SCG Muangthong United in Thailand

Cups always bring a lot of emotions. In Thailand, the first round of the Thai FA Cup is on right now, with all big clubs in contention. This monday, SCG Muangthong United, one of the main club in Thailand League 1, was playing against Nongbua Pitchaya FC, a club of Thai League 2. A game which could have been considered easy but ended up in a narrow win for The Kirins (1-0). The one and only goal was scored by the star striker of Muangthong, the Brazilian player Heberty Fernandes de Andrade. And it was not exactly the ugliest goal ever...

The native of Sao Paulo has an interesting journey in football. After having tried his luck in numerous clubs in Brazil (Vasco da Gama, CA Juventus, Sao Caetano, Paulista), he went to Japan (Thespa Kusatsu, Cerezo Osaka, Vegalta Sendai), then Thailand (Ratchaburi), Saudi Arabia (Al Shabab) and finally back to Thailand for Muangthong United in 2017.

When in Ratchaburi, he became a big star in Thailand, scoring no less than 75 goals in two and half years. And then decided to move to Muangthong where he was heavily expected by his coachm Totchtawan Sripan, who then declared to the Bangkok Post : “Everbody knows Heberty is a top class player. We all know how good he was during his time at Ratchaburi. He will provide an option for our attack and I’m sure he will quickly adapt to our style of play. He will definitely be a great asset to the team”.

Without being a fortune teller, Sripan was definitely right : Heberty enchanted the crowd and finished top scorer of the Thai League 1 with 17 goals in 2018.

But beyond the goals, Heberty showed his skills all season long, and the softness of his touch. In this Thai Cup game, he for example managed this beautiful move which unfortunately did not finish in the nets. But what a piece of skills !

And if you are not entirely convinced, look at what the player posted on his instagram account a few days ago…

When arriving at Muangthong, the Brazilian aesthete said he’d choose “Muangthong because it is the best team in Thailand and I want to win things here. Hopefully I can help them to do that”. Well, if he carries on playing the same, the Cup might not be too far off his shelves !
