Kang Sung-jin’s name stood out. In the 26th minute of the second group game against Jordan at the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-20 Asian Cup in March, Kang picked up the ball on the halfway line. He went on a brilliant run, beating three defenders. Then, after a stepover in front of the penalty arc, he fired a left-footed shot. The ball found the top left corner of the goal.

He becomes the second South Korean to win the award after Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur). Son previously won the award in the 2019-20 Premier League (PL) season when he scored a 70-meter dribbling wonder goal against Burnley. Now, Kang Sung-jin is looking to follow in his footsteps.

The firepower of South Korean fans is important. The award is based on a combination of 50 percent fan votes and 50 percent votes from a panel of soccer experts.
