The golden age of Korean soccer is exploding. South Korean soccer players have been making waves in Europe. In particular, their strikers are doing great.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that the defenders aren’t performing as well. Kim Min-jae has been a full-time starter for 10 consecutive matches and is now firmly established as the starting center back for the prestigious Bayern Munich. It’s a bonus that he’s ranked 22nd in Ballon d’Or.
Lee Kang-in started. Lee scored his debut goal in the last Champions League match against AC Milan. It was his debut goal for PSG and his Champions League debut. It was such a big goal that it summoned up the 22-year-old Son Heung-min.
He was followed by his eldest brother, Son Heung-min. Just three days later, Son scored again against Fulham. It was his eighth goal of the league, making him the second highest scorer behind Elling Holland. The team moved into sole possession of first place.
It didn’t end there. Hwang Hee-chan continued Son Heung-min’s rise. On October 29, Hwang scored a valuable goal against Newcastle to tie the game at 2-2. He also set a new record for scoring in every home game in the league. He also picked up an assist against Sheffield Wednesday. With six consecutive games with an offensive point, he is beginning to establish himself as one of the EPL’s leading wing forwards.
Next up was Hwang Ui-jo. Hwang scored his debut goal for England in the English Championship. Hwang has been a consistent scorer for his country, but has struggled in England. This was a step in the right direction.
The baton was once again passed to Lee Kang-in. Lee made his Ligue 1 debut on Oct. 29, providing an assist for Mbappe’s goal, and then scored his first league goal with a thunderous left-footed strike in the league game, cementing his place in Enrique’s system. 보스토토
He’s not the only one. Lee Jae-sung, who plays in Germany, also helped Mainz break through with a header. Cho Kyu-sung also exploded for his seventh goal of the season for Mittwallan, while Lee Han-beom picked up an assist. Hong Hyun-seok also found the back of the net in the Belgian league, while Celtic’s Oh Hyun-gyu has also scored a brace this season. This means that most strikers in overseas leagues are finding the back of the net.
