Hwang Ui-jo of FC Girondins de Bordeaux scored his 10th goal of the season in France's Ligue 1 on Sunday, achieving a double-digit goal tally for the second consecutive season.
With his team losing 3-1 in an away match against RC Lens, Hwang scored in the 53rd minute. But Bordeaux lost 3-2 to remain in last place among 20 teams, with 20 points from four wins, eight draws and 12 losses.
Hwang, who joined Bordeaux in July 2019, scored six goals in his first season with the club and 12 goals in the 2020-21 season, posting a double-digit goal tally for the first time since his European debut.
In a match against RC Strasbourg Alsace on Jan. 23, he scored a hat trick, bringing his total goals since joining the French club to 27 and breaking Park Chu-young's record for the most goals by an Asian player in Ligue 1. Park scored 25 goals in 91 matches for AS Monaco from 2008 to 2011.
Sunday's goal took his total to 28.
