Chinese Fans Hit With Rubbish at Fifa 2026 World Cup Cup Qualifier

Chinese fans hit by water bottles and garbage from Thailand fans as security step in after the Fifa 20260 World Cup Cup qualifier match at Rajamangala National Stadium in Bangkok. China’s men’s national football team began their Fifa 2023 World Cup qualifying campaign with a 2-1 away victory over Thailand.

Unfortunately, there were unpleasant scenes at the final whistle at Bangkok’s Rajamangala National Stadium, when China came from behind to win all three points in their group C match, as the second phase of Asian qualification for the 2026 championships began.

Sarach Yooyen scored from long range for the world No 112-ranked hosts after 23 minutes, but Wu Lei equalized with a tap-in just six minutes later. In the 74th minute, substitute Wang Shangyuan headed home the winner for Aleksandar Jankovic’s visitors.

As China’s players said their goodbyes to the visiting fans and exited the field, television footage showed home supporters throwing trash and unfinished drinks bottles into the away section while also attempting to irritate them with physical gestures.

As the Chinese fans celebrated their team’s victory, some Thai fans appeared to attempt to scale the fence separating the sections.

Security personnel intervened to attempt to calm them down, as several Chinese supporters began throwing objects back into the Thai section.
