今年はCambodiaのSoltilo Angkor FCでプレーします。 本田圭佑選手がオーナーのクラブです。 シンガポールからカンボジアというかなり生活のギャップがありますが、どこにいこうとサッカーが大好きだし、サッカーが出来ることが1番の幸せです。 その中でもこのカンボジアという場所に来た意味、使命をしっかり考えて、サッカーを通してカンボジアの人たちの夢や希望をみつけるキッカケ作りができたらいいなと思います。 サッカーを通してたくさんの笑顔を作る! 今年もがんばるよ! まだまだ成長できる!! #soltiloangkorfc#cambodia#siemreap#angkorwat #カンボジア#シェムリアップ#アンコールワット#2枚目の写真がすべてを物語っている#がんばるぞ
