Thai superstar Supachok Sarachat’s move to Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo made headlines all over Thailand, and his Meiji Yasuda J.League debut put him right back on the front pages.
Supachok delivered an assist just four minutes into his J.League career, putting the cherry on Consadole's dominant 5-1 win over Shonan Bellmare.
Supachok was subbed on in the 68th minute and by the 72nd minute was played in down the right. He showed off terrific pace to run the ball down, then poise to pick his head up and find Ryota Aoki, who he delivered a pinpoint pass to for the finish. It was an exhibition of the many rumored qualities Supachok could bring to his team and to the J.League.
Consa entered the match winless in their last five, but they are riding high now. They put in an excellent performance in Hiratsuka, and now with Supachok in the team, Sapporo may be primed for a great run of form that takes them up the table.
