South Korean international soccer player Hwang Eui-jo (Norwich City) looks emotional after scoring a goal against Tunisia.
Hwang Ui-jo scored South Korea’s fourth goal in the second half of the South Korea-Tunisia A friendly at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on March 13.
Hwang Ui-jo, who came on as a substitute in the second half, did not miss a pass from Park Yong-woo in the direction of Tunisia and went one-on-one with the goalkeeper to turn the score to 4-0 in the second overtime.
More than the goal itself, it was the sight of Hwang Ui-jo lying on the ground and unable to get up for a while after the goal that attracted the attention of the fans, as it showed the ‘heartache’ of Hwang Ui-jo.
Hwang Ui-jo was a consistent striker under former coach Paulo Bento, and was given the role of frontline striker. However, as the World Cup approached, he struggled for form and failed to show his best. As he bounced from club to club in Europe, he had fewer opportunities to play and was criticized for his lack of match fitness.
He watched as his younger teammate, Cho Kyu-sung (Meatwillan), emerged as a surprise star during the World Cup. Cho’s position in the national team was previously held by Hwang Eui-jo.
More recently, Hwang’s personal life was leaked by someone who obtained his previously lost cell phone. Hwang has had to deal with a difficult situation off the field as well, as he has taken legal action.
“It was a goal I’ve been waiting for a long time,” he told reporters after the game. I think I just had a good feeling about it.” It’s been four months since he scored an A-match goal in an A-match trial against El Salvador on June 20.
He returned to his home club Nottingham Forest in England this summer, but was loaned to English Championship (Second Division) side Norwich City at the start of the season. 토토사이트
