FC Seoul striker Na Sang-ho achieved the April Player of the Month and Goal of the Month ‘double’.
The Korea Professional Football Federation announced on the 17th that Na Sang-ho was awarded the K-League’s Goal of the Month for April. Sponsored by Dongwon F&B, ‘Dongwon Spring Water Goal of the Month by Mother Nature’ is an award given to the player who scored the most impressive goal every month. For two candidates, the winner was determined by 100% fan voting through the K-League membership application ‘Kick’. April’s ‘Goal of the Month’ was for K-League 1 rounds 5-10, and Na Sang-ho and Lee Jin-hyun (Daejeon) competed.
Na Sang-ho hit a right-footed shot from a long distance outside the penalty box in the 5th minute of the second half of the 5th round Daejeon away, and the ball was sucked straight into the opposing team’s goal. In the 28th minute of the second half against Jeonbuk in the 9th round, Lee Jin-hyun attempted a left-footed kick in a corner kick situation, drawing a fantastic trajectory and splitting the opposing team’s net.
A total of 11,415 people participated in the fan vote held on ‘Kick’ for three days from the 11th to the 13th. As a result, Na Sang-ho, who received 5808 votes (50.9%), narrowly beat Lee Jin-hyun, who received 5607 votes (49.1%), by a margin of 1.8%. Na Sang-ho, who leads the scoring with 8 goals, enjoyed the double celebration of winning the ‘EA SPORTS K-League Player of the Month Award’ in April and ‘Daeyeon’s Dongwon Spring Goal of the Month’. Na Sang-ho’s ‘April Goal’ award ceremony will be held on the 20th at the Seoul World Cup Stadium where Seoul and Jeju meet, and a trophy will be delivered along with a prize money of 1 million won.
There is a possibility that Na Sang-ho will win the ‘Goal of the Month’ consecutively in May. In the home game against Gwangju on the 9th, in the 20th minute of the second half, Hwang Ui-jo’s high cross was scored with a sharp right-footed volley, 스포츠토토 which became a hot topic among soccer fans.
