Yogyakarta: Kritsada Wongkaeo praised his teammates after his hat-trick helped Bluewave Chonburi to a 9-2 win over Vic Vipers in their Group C tie at the AFC Futsal Club Championship Indonesia 2018 on Thursday.

“My teammates played a huge part in assisting me to get a hat-trick. It was all teamwork. I could see everyone was focused and they gave their all in the game.

“This was our first match and it was against Vic Vipers, hence our strategy was to sit back and gauge the opponents,” said Bluewave captain Wongkaeo.

“After studying their style of play we pulled out the tactics and planned our attack. The training camp in Japan really helped us with our game and we benefited from that.”

The defending champions can make tournament history by becoming the first team to win back-to-back titles and claim their third championship. The feat will also equal Japan’s Nagoya Oceans who won titles in 2011, 2014 and 2016.

Rakphol Sainetngamwas’ team play their next match on Saturday against debutants Al Sailiya, who lost 4-1 to FC Erem in their opener.
