For ‘Shooting Monster’ Cho Young-wook, the K League 2 stage is narrow

‘Shooting Monster’ Cho Young-wook (24, Gimcheon Commerce) has been on fire this season. He has already set a new career-high, raising expectations for his performance at the upcoming Hangzhou Asian Games (AG).

On June 6, Cho started and played the entirety of their K League 2 Round 25 match against Seongnam FC at Gimcheon Sports Complex, helping them to a 4-0 victory.

It was literally Young-wook’s ‘showtime’. Starting as a frontline striker, Cho scored his 11th league goal in the 31st minute with a neatly converted penalty kick. He then assisted on goals by Kang Hyun-mook in the 10th minute of the second half and Kim Min-joon in the 42nd minute, giving him three offensive points in one game. Both assists were made with steady passes to create perfect goal chances.

Cho Young-wook, who last played in the K League in 2018, set a new career-high early this season. He scored double-digit points in the league for the first time in a single season, albeit in the second division. His 15 offensive points through six days is also a personal best.

Cho Young-wook’s performance has been divided since June. After joining the league in January, he scored just two goals in 13 games through May. However, starting with a multi-goal performance against the Ansan Greeners in the 17th round on June 10, he found the back of the net in seven consecutive games until the 23rd round against Gyeongnam FC last month. After failing to score against FC Anyang in the previous match, he found the back of the net again against Seongnam, scoring nine goals in his last nine matches. Gimcheon has won seven games in that span, giving them an advantage in the race for first place.카지노

Cho Young-wook’s performance has been welcome for another reason. He was named to the AG national soccer team last month, led by Hwang Sun-hong, and will travel to Hangzhou, China, in September. When the roster was announced, it was pointed out that the team was lacking a frontline striker, but the midfielder’s ability to play as a striker will be a big boost for Hwang. In addition to being a striker, Cho is also a melty player who can play anywhere in the second line.

He also has an unusually large amount of national team experience at every age group. He has 82 caps for the South Korean national team, including a whopping 78 at age-group level. FC Seoul fans jokingly refer to him as a “Seoul loanee,” but that’s a testament to his talent. After the league schedule, he will be called up to the National Training Center (NFC) in Paju on the 7th for three days of training with the AG national team.
