Thailand’s FA bans two footballers for six months over SEA Games brawl

Thailand’s Football Association (FA) banned two Thai footballers from playing in national video games for six months over the brawls that erupted in the course of the men’s football ultimate between Indonesia and Thailand on the SEA Games in Phnom Penh on May 16. The FA banned three employees members who stormed the pitch for a whole 12 months, citing their lack of maturity.
The FA handed a six-month ban to goalie Soponvit Rakyart, who ran half the length of the pitch to throw a punch after chaos broke out in the course of the final minutes of the match. Another player who got concerned, substitute Teerapak Pruegna, also obtained a six-month ban from national games for brawling.
Their bans would have been longer but the FA went simple on them since they’re “young” and were “under match strain and have apologised.” Whereas, the FA banned three employees members who should know higher – Prasobchok Chokmor, Pattravudh Wongsripeuk, and Mayeed Mudadum – for one year…
“The fact-finding team agreed unanimously that as adults, the goalkeeping coach and staff officials must be mature sufficient to regulate the situation and set a great example for the players, who’re aged beneath 22 years outdated. They shouldn’t lead or participate within the incident.”
After War Elephant substitute Yotsakorn Burapha scored an equaliser in the ninetieth minute, Indonesia hit again and netted a aim because of a slip from Thai defender Somchai Thongcham.
Seconds later, a huge brawl broke out with coaches storming the pitch and inspiring the fight. The referee dished out five red playing cards to those accountable: one to Thailand’s goalie Soponvit, one to Indonesian defender Komang Trisanda and three to the unruly coaches.
Indonesia scored two more targets earlier than the ultimate whistle blew, placing an end to Indonesia’s 32-year SEA Games men’s soccer medal drought with a 5-2 win.

Two minutes into extra time, Indonesia clapped again and netted a objective due to a slip-up from Thai defender Somchai Thongcham.
Seconds later, an enormous brawl broke out with coaches from each groups storming the pitch and encouraging the battle. A flood of security employees ran onto the pitch in a bid to quell the violence.
The referee dished out 5 pink cards for these answerable for starting the battle: one for Thailand’s goalie Soponvit who ran the size of the pitch to launch a punch, one for Indonesian defender Komang Trisanda and three for coaches from both groups.
Extra time continued as quickly as calm returned just for Thai-Danish participant Jonathan Khemdee to be sent off with a yellow card in the 101st minute, leaving simply nine players on the pitch preventing Thailand’s corner.
Then, Indonesia’s Fajar Fathur Rahman scored the team’s fourth, but not last, aim from the sting of the box. Then, Thailand was left with eight men when striker Teerasak received a second yellow card within the 118th minute.
