After scoring the winning goal against Saudi Arabia in the A-Match on March 13 to complete Jürgen Klinsmann’s first win as South Korea national team coach, “Prince of Denmark” Cho Kyu-sung showed his scoring touch with another goal upon returning to his club.
His club, Mittwillan, in the Danish Superliga (first division), took a valuable point away from home and maintained their mid-table position.
Midtjylland striker Cho Kyu-sung scored the first goal of the game for both teams in the seventh minute of stoppage time with the score tied at 0-0 in the eighth round of the Danish Superliga 2023/24 at Viborg Stadium in Viborg, Denmark on Saturday. Cho Kyu-sung, who became the first South Korean player to score two goals in a single World Cup match when he scored a header against Ghana at last year’s World Cup in Qatar, is known for his ability to weave his way through physical Danes and play quality post play.
It was no different today, as the Brazilian striker charged in from the right side of the penalty area to head home a cross from the left flank, and the ball bounced once in the goal area before ricocheting into the back of the net.The celebration was compounded by the presence of thousands of Mittwilan away fans behind the goal. As the away fans cheered in unison, Cho Kyu-sung sprinted in front of them, jumped up and pointed his right index finger in celebration.
The goal took his tally to four goals in seven games and moved him into a tie for third place on the Superliga scoring list. Including his goal in the UEFA Europa Conference qualifiers, he has now scored five goals in 12 official matches.

On July 31, he scored a cool right-footed diagonal shot from inside the penalty area against Silkeborg, proving that he is also an excellent striker with his feet in addition to his headers. Meatwillan also rode the back-to-back goals of Cho Kyu-sung to their second straight win.
Cho also scored in three consecutive games in the third round of the League Division on March 7, but his efforts were overshadowed by his team’s 1-4 loss. 안전놀이터 Since then, Mittwillan’s side have struggled with a hamstring (back thigh muscle) injury that forced him to miss six rounds of four games and has left them without a goal, and the team has slipped to mid-table, hovering around sixth place out of 12 teams. They were also eliminated in the final playoffs of UEFA’s Europa Conference qualifiers, losing to Legia Warsaw in Poland.
