On 8 August 2013, Plazibat signed for J2 League side FC Gifu.[1] He made his debut on 18 August, as an 85th-minute substitute versus Mito HollyHock. On 1 September, he scored his first goal for FC Gifu, scoring in the 82nd minute in the 2-1 loss to Tokyo Verdy, after coming on as a substitute at half time. On 11 July 2014, it was announced Plazibat had left the club.[2]

Hougang United[edit]

On 30 Jan 2016, Plazibat joined S-League side Hougang United after impressing in 2 trial games with 3 goals and 2 assists.[4] He scored his first competitive goal for the Cheetahs on his competitive debut, winning the Cheetahs' first 3 points of the season.[5] He scored his second in as many games against title favourites Tampines Rovers FC. Plazibat's 5th goal in 5 games sent Hougang to the top of the table in the 5th round of the 2016 S.League season.[6] In total, he scored 14 times in 26 league games for the Cheetahs before moving to Home United.[7]

Home United[edit]

After his contract was not renewed by the Hougang United's Management, Plazibat moved to local rivals, Home United.[8]

His start with the team saw him scoring in the AFC Cup qualifying round against Phnom Penh Crown over 2 legs while he also scored 4 goals in his Home United league debut in the 1st match in the 2017 season.[9] He followed up his impressive early season form with 2 more goals against Brunei DPMM FC, bringing his league tally up to 6 goals from 2 games.[10][11] He scored his 7th goal for Home in a top of the clash with Albirex Niigata(S) in his 3rd league game.[12]

He continued his goalscoring form for the Protectors in a midweek AFC Cup game against Than Quảng Ninh, scoring 4 goals to help his side to a 4-5 victory in Vietnam, the second time he has scored 4 goals in 2017.[13] This brings his total goals scored, in all competitions, to 11 goals in 8 games for his new club.[7] He continued his fine goal scoring form by notching a brace in the uniform derby against Warriors FC, helping his side to a 2-2 draw. With that, he reached 10 goals in just 5 league appearances.[14]


Singapore Selection Squad[edit]

He was selected as part of the Singapore Selection squad for The Sultan of Selangor’s Cup to be held on 6 May 2017.[15]

However, due to an injury sustained in the Sleague match, he had to pull out from the squad. [16]
