Video: Thailand Score Incredible Tiki-Taka Goal in 2018 World Cup Qualifier

The Thailand national side have clearly been studying some Barcelona match tapes at their training camp recently.

Full-back Theerathon Bunmathan fired home a stunning finish to make it 3-0 against Vietnam last night in their 2018 World Cup qualifier.

But the defender’s goal was only the icing on top of some wonderful team play.

The Thai players demonstrated some sensational Tiki-Taka passing in a move which saw them complete 15 passes without interception before the ball wound up in the back of the opposing goal.

You can check their excellent passing goal in the video below.

The Tiki-Taka style of play became synonymous with the Barcelona squad managed by former boss Pep Guardiola between 2008 and 2012.

Barca’s iconic style of intricate passing moves was also largely adopted by the Spanish national side which featured a number of Nou Camp stars.

During this era, Barcelona won three La Liga titles and two Champions League crowns, while the national side won the World Cup in 2010 as well as two European Championships (2008 & 2012).
