Cho Kyu-sung, the ‘One-Top of the Budong’, will challenge to become the top scorer at the Asian Cup for the first time in 13 years since Koo Ja-cheol

Cho Kyu-sung (26), who is gaining experience in Meat Whelan in the Danish Super League, will challenge to become the top scorer at the 2024 AFC (Asian Football Confederation) Qatar Asian Cup, which will kick off on the 13th (Korea time). Expectations are high that he will stand at the forefront of the Korean national team led by Jurgen Klinsmann and serve as a troubleshooter.

Cho is currently regarded as the “one-top of ups and downs” of the Klinsman team. He emerged as the starting member of Bento’s team at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, and has since established himself as one-top option. Senior Hwang Ui-jo has strengthened his position as he was excluded from the Asian Cup list due to privacy concerns.

He is also expected to play a key role in the Asian Cup finals. He has more experience and superior skills than younger players Oh Hyun-kyu. He needs to work well with Son Heung-min, Hwang Hee-chan and Lee Kang-in to raise expectations further. He has no time to rest as he will play the first and second Group E matches with Middle Eastern teams Bahrain and Jordan. Chances are high that Cho will be at the forefront to hunt for goals from the first Group E match.

So far, five Korean players have become top scorer at the Asian Cup. Cho Yoon-ok (four goals) became top scorer for the first time at the 1960 event, and Choi Soon-ho scored seven goals in 1980 to become the top scorer. Lee Tae-ho grabbed the top scorer title with three goals at the 1988 event, and Lee Dong-guk topped the list with six goals at the 2000 event. Koo Ja-cheol also grabbed the Golden Boot with five goals at the 2011 event. 스포츠토토

Cho has scored eight goals in 31 A matches so far. He scored multiple goals in the second Group H match against Ghana (Korea lost 2-3) at the 2022 Qatar World Cup. He became the first Korean to score multiple goals in the World Cup finals. Since then, he has stood tall as a one-top starting member of the national team, and is making inroads into the European leagues to show growth. He is also drawing attention as a front-line striker who is expected to become the top scorer at the Asian Cup.
