HWANG Sun-Hong

Date of birth14 July 1968
NationalityKorean (KOR)
PositionMidfielder

He is a real veteran with his international career beginning in the 1988 Asian Cup. He played in the 1996 Olympics and the 1990, 1994 and 1998 World Cups (he missed all three matches in the final due to a knee injury). He played in Japan for Cereso Osaka and scored 24 goals in 25 matches in the 1999-2000 season. After one season back in Korea he returned to play in Japan for Kashiwa Reysol and his consistent club performances earned him an international recall. He is excellent in the air and is a perfect target man for the team. He is likely to start up front for the team.

He scored Korea's first goal in their historic 2-0 defeat of Poland in their opening game of the 2002 tournament in Busan - Korea's first victory in their sixth World Cup finals.
