Hwang Ui-jo scored an additional goal in the 12th minute of the first half when his team led 1-0 in the 18th round of the 2023-2024 English Championship (part 2) against Watford at Vicarage Road in London, England on the 29th (Korea time).
Hwang, who caught the ball while counterattacking, shook the net with a mid-range shot with his right foot aimed at the top of the goal from 30 yards (about 27.4 meters). The shot is unique in the scene where Hwang hits the ball with his upper body lowered after collecting energy.
Sky Sports, a sports broadcaster, described it as “Thunderbolt (lightning goal)” and “blockbuster.”
Hwang Ui-jo scored the first winning goal in the match against Queens Park Rangers (QPR) on the 26th and continued his good momentum by shooting his third goal in three days.
Coincidentally, the score on the day came after the Korea Football Association held an emergency discussion body on the afternoon of the 28th to temporarily deprive Hwang Ui-jo of his national team qualification.
The association announced that it will exclude Hwang from the national team until the results of his investigation are announced. Jürgen Klinsmann, the coach of the Korean national team, said he respected the association’s decision.

In the 32nd minute of the 2-2 second half, Yaser Aspriya allowed a come-from-behind goal.
