    Hwang Ui-jo of FC Girondins de Bordeaux scored his fourth and fifth goals of the season in a home match against Angers SCO in France's Ligue 1 on Sunday, leading his team to a 2-1 victory.

    It was his first multi-goal game since he debuted in the French league in July 2019.

    The first goal came in the eighth minute and the second just three minutes later when Hwang netted a shot from the right side of the penalty area after receiving a through pass from a teammate and beating a defender with his brilliant ball control.

    Bordeaux conceded a goal in the 39th minute but led the game until the end to complete its first three-game winning streak of the season. The club is currently in seventh place among 20 teams with 32 points from nine wins, five draws and seven losses.

    Hwang is now the team's top scorer this season with five goals in 19 matches.

    "I'm happier that our team had three consecutive wins. I hope we will continue this trend," he said.
