Adam Ida is the second-most prolific striker in the team with five goals and one assist in 15 games this season. He was called up to the Irish national team during the A-match break and scored a goal in the match against New Zealand. 토토사이트 However, Norwich City coach David Wagner put Ida on the bench and started Hwang Ui-jo.
Hwang Ui-jo, who started as a frontline striker in the match against Queen’s Park Rangers in round 17 of the 2023-24 English Championship at Caro Road, Norwich, England on the 26th, shook the net by receiving a long pass and connecting it with a shot in the 21st minute of the first half. Hwang Ui-jo’s first goal led to the 1-0 victory final score. After the game, Norwich City announced that Hwang Ui-jo was selected as the best player of the game conducted by fan voting.
Hwang Ui-jo left Girodin Bordeaux in August last year and moved to Nottingham Forest in the Premier League. It was meant to be a desire to challenge the Premier League. However, there was no room at Nottingham Forest, and Hwang Ui-jo was loaned to Olympiacos, Greece as soon as he moved. It was a loan transfer to get playing time.
However, the situation did not change at Olympiacos, and Hwang Ui-jo returned to Korea to save his lost sense of play and played for FC Seoul from February to June.
FC Seoul hoped to continue accompanying Hwang Ui-jo, but Hwang Ui-jo put himself on a plane to Europe again, saying he would challenge, and this time moved the team back to Nottingham Forest in the English Championship, one level below the Premier League.
This choice raised Hwang Ui-jo’s soccer life again, which had been on the decline. Hwang Ui-jo, who mainly went through a period of adaptation as a replacement in the early days of his joining, impressed David Wagner with a sincere attitude in training, and started four consecutive games from the game against Sunderland on the 29th of last month to the game against Queens Park Rangers.
After the game against Queens Park Rangers, Wagner said, Hwang Ui-jo is a very good soccer player in terms of skill, work ethic and understanding of the game. There is a reason why he has played more than 50 games for the Korean national team, he said. Hwang Ui-jo has adapted well and understands what we want.
The same goes for the national team. Unlike his time at Olympiacos, he steadily participated in his team and built up a justification for the call-up. Coach Jurgen Klinsmann called Hwang Ui-jo unchanged in the second round of the Asian qualifying round for the 2026 North-China World Cup this month. In the national team, where three front-line strikers, including Hwang Ui-jo, Cho Kyu-sung and Oh Hyun-kyu, were called up, coach Klinsmann deployed Hwang Ui-jo after starting striker Cho Kyu-sung in both Singapore and China, and Hwang Ui-jo even scored with a penalty kick in the match against China. Currently, he has established himself as the second option among the frontline strikers of the national team. Given that the next call-up is the Asian Cup finals, if there are no special variables such as injuries, the call-up was certain.
However, his long-standing national team career is on the verge of stopping due to work outside the stadium. Hwang Ui-jo was investigated as a suspect by the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency on the 17th after the illegally filmed sex video was released on social media in June.
In response, the Korea Football Association formed a discussion body consisting of members of the ethics committee, the Fair Trade Commission, and the National Power Reinforcement Committee on the afternoon of the 28th to discuss Hwang Ui-jo’s recent illegal filming of sex and said, We have decided not to select Hwang Ui-jo for the national team until we have a clear conclusion on the facts.
Lee Yoon-nam, chairman of the ethics committee who presided over the meeting, explained, Although the dispute over whether the crime is true or not continues and the association cannot predict and conclude the case under investigation, the national team must self-manage as a player representing the country with a high degree of morality and responsibility, and is in a position not to do anything that can damage the reputation of the national team.
