Hwang Ui-jo (30) made his first step on the European stage in the summer of 2019 when he signed a contract with Bordeaux of Ligue 1, France. At that time, expectations that he would leave a special mark on this stage were not high. He was evaluated as a top striker in Asia, but it is because he started the challenge at the late age of 27. Considering the adjustment period, etc., the time given to him seemed too short.

However, Hwang Ui-jo scored six goals in his first year alone and then scored double-digit goals the following year, quickly establishing himself and dispelling these worries. After three seasons, he made a mark. Park Joo-young’s record for the most goals in Ligue 1 from 2005 to 2008 was held at the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux in Bordeaux, France on the 23rd in the 2021-2022 French professional football league 1 round 22 home match against Strasbourg. He did it in a special way, the first hat-trick after entering Europe. Hwang Ui-jo scored three goals and led the team to a 4-3 victory.

He started as a starter and scored his first goal in the 17th minute. The opposing defender tried to kick off a cross raised by Remy Woodin from the left flank, and the ball was thrown in a rush and he pushed it in with his right foot. With this, he tied for Park Joo-young’s record with 25 goals in his league career. In the 39th minute of the first half, Albert Ellis’ additional goal led them 2-0, and he scored another goal with an exquisite left-footed mid-range cannon to finally set a new record. Here, Strasbourg followed two goals and scored a crucial goal in the 45th minute after maintaining an unstable lead 3-2. A powerful right-footed shot from outside the box after receiving a pass from Ellis went into the net. This brings his career goalscoring record to 27. He also increased his league goalscoring to eight goals, bringing his double-digit goalscoring for two consecutive seasons into sight.

This victory was special for the team as well. Bordeaux, which had been in a slump in the last 4 consecutive losses, including 3 consecutive losses in the league since the end of December last year, not only broke the losing streak, but also added 3 points to raise the ranking to 17th with 20 points from 4 wins, 8 draws and 10 losses, and escaped the relegation zone. it happened
