Hwang Hee-chan wants to improve for Wolves after World Cup exploits

Wolves attacker Hwang Hee-chan has his sights set on improving for his club, after a great experience at the World Cup.

The 26-year-old is currently back in his native South Korea after a whirlwind past week or so.

Hwang returned from injury to score the winning goal against Portugal last week to guide his nation to the knockout stages.

His goal meant South Korea won 2-1 and got out of their group as runners-up, with Uruguay and Ghana crashing out.

Paulo Bento’s side then met Brazil in the last 16, and the Samba stars proved to be a step too far.

The competition favourites demolished Korea 4-1, with Hwang powerless to stop them.

Hwang actually played quite well in the game. He was easily the biggest threat for Korea, and came in for praise from commentator Ally McCoist in the second-half.

It was a shame for Hwang that his hamstring injury meant he only got to play around 120 minutes in Qatar.

But the star’s contributions were positive, and he now has his sights set to improving his form back at Wolves.

He said (as quoted by JoongAng Daily): “I want to improve not only with the national team but also with my contracted team.”
 
“I was very happy that we were able to reach the round of 16 with my goal. I feel proud to be Korean.”

The World Cup has been a success for Wolves regarding Hwang Hee-chan despite his injury, as he now seeks to improve

Hwang didn’t get to feature as much as he’d like in Qatar.

But he still made a vital contribution with that goal against Portugal.

He then put in an admirable performance against a top side in Brazil, which led some people to question why his club form hasn’t quite been there in recent times.

So the World Cup has been a good thing for Wolves regarding Hwang.

He really needed a confidence boost, and he will surely have gotten one following his two appearances.

He could well now enjoy the improvements he himself has spoken about.
