Friday night was an exciting one for fans of AS Uijeongbu 07. Not only did stalwart midfielder Ki-Tak Kim receive his 18th cap for the Hanguk NT, he was joined for the first time by homegrown talent Chang-Ho ‘Aloha’ Kim. Having two midfielders play for the local national team at the same time is honor enough for any club, but Au7’s midfield duo added to that by both scoring in their match against Al Yaman.
Chang-Ho wasn’t done there, as he also scored Sunday morning in his side’s 4-0 thrashing of second-placed Alphaville. Au7 are now five points clear at the top of the K-League following their highest HatStats record to date, 494. Tamal Tope scored twice in the match to lead the top scorer list with six goals this season. Not bad for a wingback!
