    Hwang Ui-jo of FC Girondins de Bordeaux scored his sixth goal of the season in an away match against ES Troyes AC in France's Ligue 1 on Sunday.

    He scored the winning goal to lead his team to a 2-1 victory, netting a header off a cross from teammate Rémi Oudin in the 54th minute with the match tied 1-1.

    He has now been involved in key attacking plays for three consecutive matches, after scoring a goal and posting an assist in Bordeaux's two previous matches.

    Hwang returned to the pitch late last month after missing four league matches due to injuries.

    He has scored six goals and posted two assists in 13 league matches so far this season, making a major contribution to the team.

    If he scores one more goal, he will tie the record for the most goals by an Asian player in Ligue 1. Park Chu-young, who scored 25 goals in 91 matches for AS Monaco from 2008 to 2011, currently holds the record. Hwang, who is in his third season with Bordeaux, has scored 24 goals in 73 matches.

    Bordeaux's next match is against Lille OSC on Dec. 22.
