Multi-goal → League score ‘2nd place’… Thiago, “I just do my best! I want to score as many goals as possible”
Tiago, who tied for second in league scoring, showed his will to do his best every moment in the future.

On this day, Daejeon exploded with firepower. It was the first time Daejeon recorded a multi-scoring game with three or more goals since the Ulsan Hyundai expedition at the end of May. And at the center of it was Thiago. Thiago opened the scoring with a cool left-footed shot after receiving a pass from Martha in the 31st minute of the first half, and completed a multi-goal goal with a penalty kick in the 41st minute of the first half.
Thiago, who met with reporters after the match, said, “I am happy to have scored today. Fortunately, it hit the top of the goal and went in. That’s why I think it was a better goal.”
Thiago joined Daejeon this year. He showed his presence by scoring 19 goals on the K-League 2 stage last season, and was recruited as part of Daejeon’s offensive reinforcement ahead of entering the first division.
Thiago scored the opening goal in the 10th minute of the first half in the opening game against Gangwon FC and became the hero of the comeback goal for Daejeon, which returned to the K-League 1 stage after 8 years. Until this day, he scored 7 goals in the league and was running first in the team in scoring.
However, there has been no scoring since the game against Jeju at the end of June. Thiago showed his will to do his best, saying, “The K-League is really not an easy place. You can tell just by looking at the leading scorer group. Three people scored 11 goals. But I try to train hard every day at the training ground.”
Thiago is now two goals behind the top scorer group with his ninth goal in the league. When asked if he had any thoughts about competing for the top scorer, he said, “I just do my best on the field. I want to score as many goals as possible for the rest of the season. The goal I set at the beginning of the season was 20 goals. I want to score as many goals as possible,” he said.
