Teerasil's superb goal against Australia was set-up by a beautiful cross from a former teammate, Jakkaphan Keawprom, a player who caught my eye early on into his MTU career and is now a regular at PEA.
So good for the young full-back, now what about other MTU alumni?
"Leesaw" , arguably the biggest name to be released by MTU is a favourite at BEC Tero and scored a screamer on the opening day of TPL 2011, but has been blighted by serious injury since. TLF report he is ready to make a return.
There are many other former quilins at Tero. As I predicted, Ronnachai Rungsiyo has shown his value as a striker by a steady stream of goals for the 'Fire Dragons' and things look to be working out for him.
Less lucky is Jetsada Jirawat who has gone from captain of the TPL champions to division one via BEC Tero in less than two seasons. Word has it that behaviour rather than ability is the problem for Jet.
A similar move in reverse has been worked by Mika Chuanasee who went from MTU to D1 to Tero and is holding a place.
Away from Tero, Kone Muhammed has recovered from the disappointment of his transfer to Belgium falling through and is now finding form at TOT, though perhaps he is held back by the poor overall form of his team.
Key player from the 2009 championship season Wisarut spent a season at Rajpracha where he was a popular figure and has now moved on to another D1 side.
We can now watch with interest for the form of Miroslav Toth who was unlucky to be sold by MTU to Bangkok United, and this year's "will he or won't he?" candidate Issoafaou who is on loan to Phuket.
