Cho Kyu-seong (Mitwillan), who was selected as the best 11 in the opening round by exploding his debut goal in his debut match in the Danish 1st division, expands the stage and challenges the European Football Federation (UEFA) club competition.
On the 27th (Korean time) at 1:45 am at the MCH Arena in Henning, Denmark, Mittwillan will play the first leg of the 2023/24 season UEFA (European Football Federation) Europa Conference League second qualifying round against Luxembourg club Progress Niedercomb.
Cho Kyu-seong, who scored his debut goal in his Danish league debut match, will certainly go on a goal hunt in the match against Needercombe, his European debut match.
Previously, Kyu-Sung Cho scored his debut goal with a powerful header against Hvidovre in the opening match of the Danish Super League held on the 22nd. He received a cross from Paulinho from the left flank with his head. It was a goal reminiscent of his second goal against Ghana in the second round of the group stage of the World Cup in Qatar last year. Mittwillan won the first game of the season with Cho Kyu-sung’s winning goal.
Cho Kyu-seong, who led the team to victory, was selected as the best player in the game MOTM (Man of the Match). After the match, he said, “I’m very happy to debut as a member of Mittjylland. I’m satisfied with scoring a goal today.”
Even with the first goal, he was happy, but after the first round of the Super League was over, he was selected as one of the best 11 players in the first round. Cho Kyu-seong proudly occupied a spot in the 1st round best 11 striker category announced by the Super League website on the 26th.
In the list selected based on the 4-4-2 formation, Cho Kyu-seong formed a two-top team with Matthias Kvistgaarden, a Danish under-21 representative and active in the prestigious Danish league, Brondby.
Superliga explained the background of including it in the best 11, saying, “It seems that Mittjylland has finally found a striker. The striker from Korea finished Paulinho’s cross with the only goal of the day.”
Cho Kyu-seong, who has gained everything from his debut goal to MOTM and round best 11, is now aiming for the European stage. The Europa Conference League is ranked third among UEFA competitions, following the Champions League and the Europa League. Middle-ranking teams from Europe’s big leagues and top teams from lower leagues will compete fiercely.
Since the opponent finished runner-up in the Luxembourg League last season, it cannot be taken lightly, but since Luxembourg is a small country between Belgium and the Netherlands, Mittjylland is expected to have an advantage in terms of power. If Cho Kyu-seong fully demonstrates his current skills, he is expected to be able to score goals in two consecutive matches with his UEFA debut goal.
Cho Kyu-sung himself is clearing up the controversy that arose when he advanced to Denmark, such as the league level. The Niedercom exhibition is a game where you can see Kyu-sung Cho’s soft landing in Europe.
