ASEAN’s pride: Thailand beat France 3-2 in Paralympic football event

One of the ASEAN powerhouses, the Thailand Blind Football team defeated France Blind Football team 3-2 in the Tokyo Paralympic football event yesterday.
The win for Thailand lifts their team ranking to seventh place.
In their historic first win at the Paralympics, Kittikorn Baodee scored the first-ever Thai football-5-a-side goal, followed by two more goals from Panyawut Kupan.
Football 5-a-side is played by athletes with vision impairment.
They must pass, tackle and shoot by relying on the sound of the ball and the voice of their guide.
The two most prominent versions of Paralympic football are 5-a-side football for athletes with visual impairments and 7-a-side football for athletes with cerebral palsy.
The sport, governed by the International Blind Sports Federation (IBSA), is played with modified FIFA rules.—GNLM
