Sul Ki-hyun Comes Back Strong

Posted February. 02, 2004 23:00,   


Sul Ki-hyun has revived, scoring consecutive goals in two straight matches.

In the 2003-2004 Belgium professional soccer (Jupiler League) regular season away match against Saint-Trond, Sul Ki-hyun put in an opening goal in the first half and led his team to a 3-1 victory.

Sul Ki-Hyun was sidelined for three months due to knee cartilage injury. After scoring his first goal, a winning goal in his comeback match versus Genk, he has overcome the aftermath of surgery by notching three goals, including today’s match up, and gave notice of his revival.

In minute 29 of the first half, Sul won the ball in the right corner of the opposing side, exchanged triangle passes with his teammates, drove the ball to the penalty area, and blasted an accurate shot as the ball hit the back of the net.

Sul had chances to finish goals on the opponents’ goalmouth after his opening goal, but slick fouls by the defenders prevented him from scoring additional goals.

Anderlecht stands on top of the group thanks to Sul`s brilliance, with 52 winning points.

Sul will take part in the Asian preliminary match against Lebanon on the 18th for the 2006 Germany World Cup.

In other news, Song Jong-guk (Feyenoord) participated full time as a right wingback against FC Twente in the Holland League regular season, and assisted in his team’s 3-2 victory.

Lee Chun-soo (Real Sociedad), who is on the injury list due to an ankle ligament injury, was held out of his team’s home game match against Racing Santander, running his straight-game absence streak to 12.
