As the 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup rapidly approaches, players and fans alike are gearing up for just over a month of red-hot action across Southeast Asia, with regional bragging rights on the line.

Ahead of the big kick off, we’ve selected six of the best social media accounts to follow in order to be kept up-to-date with the goings on behind the scenes, and to gain an insight into the private lives of the stars involved.

Tanaboon Kerasat (Thailand)

The Thailand defender is a regular user of Instagram, where he’ll give you match action, training routines and a look into his downtime. Family fun and trips with loved ones feature heavily on the Bangkok Glass man’s handle.

Beto Goncalves (Indonesia)

Brazil-born Beto Goncalves lives life to the full in Indonesia where white water rafting, waterfalls and beaches appear to float his boat. To find out his other pastimes, give the Sriwijaya forward a follow.

Luong Xuan Truong (Vietnam)

One of a number of promising stars on a young Vietnam side, Luong Xuan Truong is often out and about with friends when he’s not on the football pitch. Having posted his first Instagram photo (presumably a baby Xuan Truong) at the beginning of the year, the midfielder seems to have taken to it like a duck to water.

Stephan Schröck (Philippines)

Stephan Schröck’s most recent post sees him posing with the AFF Suzuki Cup – will he be adding another in the middle of December? A keen family man, the midfielder also enjoys dressing up as a superhero with his kids when away from his teammates.

Chan Vathanaka (Cambodia)

Like so many of his peers, Cambodia’s rising star Chan Vathanaka seems to have abandoned Facebook and is now using Instagram to share his private life with fans. A talented footballer, the forward is also adept at a certain racquet sport and is clearly a huge selfie fan.

Zaquan Adha (Malaysia)

Slick on the field, slick off it, Malaysia forward Zaquan Adha is one of Harimau Malaya’s most social-media savvy footballers. The Kuala Lumpur star regularly gives fans a look into his life away from the pitch, sharing family moments, other sporting interests… and his second career as a fashion designer, with Zaquan’s own range of traditional Malay outfits!
