On January 31, 2018 the Rajamangala National Stadium of Thailand witnessed an unprecedented friendly football match between teams of the Russian Embassy in Bangkok and the Sports Authority of Thailand.
The match opened a series of games, which are planned to be held in Bangkok to promote 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
In tough struggle, our players achieved a stunning victory - 3:2. Robert Shcherbakov, Evgeniy Yung and Denis Goncharenok scored three goals while Alexander Kravets and a young member of the team Misha Sidorov assisted.
The game was followed by an informal get-together during which all the sportsmen and fans tried the national cuisine of the two countries and showed their singing talents performing a few songs in Russian and Thai languages. The Russian table was full of a food prepared by chefs of the «Ukraine» restaurant in Pattaya and the Russian Embassy in Bangkok.
Congratulations to our guys and many thanks to all the staffers of the Embassy, Russian Orthodox Church Mission and compatriots for their support!
