Lee Seung-woo scores in fourth straight K League match to boost World Cup hopes Updated: 2022-06-27 17:28:59 KST

Really great to see her pick up that win.
Moving onto the domestic game now. Another victory for last year’s KLPGA Player of the Year, Park Min-ji.

Yes, Park Min-ji on Sunday won the BC Card Hankyung Ladies Cup for what was her 13th career win and third of the season.
But, the three-day, 54-hole event was won after a sudden-death playoff against Park Ji-young.
The two Parks were tied at the end of the final round at 12-under-par, 204… one stroke ahead of Yoon Yi-na in third.
Park Min-ji was able to birdie the hole while Park Ji-young parred, missing her chance to win a second title of the season.
Meanwhile, in the men’s game, the KPGA, Kim Min-kyu on Sunday won the national title at the Kolon Korean Open Golf Championships.
The victory came following a fierce battle at the top of the leaderboard and a playoff.
But Kim eventually came out on top after a birdie putt in the third playoff at the 18th hole.

To football now. Lee Seung-woo is in fine form this season which is, of course, his first in the K League.

Yes, he really is. Lee Seung-woo on Saturday scored his eighth goal of the season to cap off a 3-0 Suwon Derby win over Suwon Bluewings.
It was also the fourth game in a row for Lee Seung-woo to find the back of the net helping Suwon to three straight wins.
After something of a nomadic career in Europe which took him from Spain to Italy, Belgium and Portugal Lee signed for Suwon at the tail end of last year looking to get his career back on track.
He made his K League debut on the opening day of the 2022 season away to Jeonbuk and has gone onto make 18 appearances, eight from the start, score eight goals and assist two.
FIFA's recent decision to expand World Cup squads from 23 players to 26 will give the likes of Lee Seung-woo hope of getting picked.
Speaking after the Suwon Derby win on his hopes for the World Cup, Lee said that he "always" has confidence in himself and that he just needs to keep on doing what he's good at.
Elsewhere in K League, there's little change at the top with Ulsan Hyundai still holding a healthy lead despite the 0-0 draw with Seongnam FC on Sunday.
Jeonbuk drawing to Daegu and Jeju losing to Gangwon means Ulsan sit eight points clear.

To women's football now. South Korea's women's team were in action over the weekend.

Yes, they were drawing to Olympic gold medalists Canada.
As part of the team's preparations for the upcoming EAFF E-1 Football Championships Korea took on Canada in a friendly in Toronto on Sunday local time.
The game ended 0-0, despite the hosts having 13 shots on goal.
For Korea, chances came at a premium.
Ji So-yun was perhaps the busiest of Korea's forward players, registering a shot just after the half-hour mark and testing the 'keeper five minutes into the second half.
Afterward, manager Colin Bell said his Korea side played "really good football" but asked for more concentration in the final third.
Korea will head to Japan in July to face Japan, China, and Chinese Taipei looking for a first East Asian cup title since 2017.

And finally, to tennis. Wimbledon is coming up and South Korea's (Kwon Sun-woo) has a bit of a difficult first game.

Yes, he does. Kwon will face Novak Djokovic later today on Centre Court.
The match is due to start at 1:30 PM UK time or 9:30 PM here in Korea.
24-year-old Kwon has only ever made it as far as the second round at Wimbledon that was in 2021.
He's ranked 75 in the world and will be taking on a 20-time grand slam winner who won Wimbledon last year and has six wins in total to his name.

Well best of luck for Kwon, Alright, thank you for that update Paul. We'll see you next week.
Thank you.
