Suzuki scored winner for Sint-Truiden


Sint-Truiden is littered with Asian talent and last weekend the Japanese forward Suzuki showed his worth for the Belgian side. This was seen as he scored the only goal in a narrow win over  KV Oostende. It was a victory that lifted the side to tenth in the league as they look to kick on after a poor start to the season. 

A good win for the side 

Sint-Truiden started their match last weekend with Japan keeper Daniel Schmitt in goals and Japanese forward Suzuki playing in the number 9 role. 

It was to be a hard first half for Sint-Truiden but they kept going. Their attacking play paid off in the end as they run out 1-0 winners. It was the sides the second league win in a row and only their fifth of the season after 13 matches. 

After the game, Suzuki was clearly happy with his goal as he told the club TV channel  “It was hard to find a shape in the first half. It was a difficult game to win away, and after the first half to score in the second half I was delighted.”

The goal sealed the former Kashima Antlers man third for the season for his new club. He went on the explain on his goal “I'm glad I got a goal. I was really conscious of the defence in these two games (it was his second goal in two games), and I was conscious of running more and I thought in the second half today I put in more work to help the team".

Meanwhile, Schmidt made his 13th appearances of the season in this match and he's picked up four clean sheets so far. This included a 0-0 draw with Genk at the end of September.

Elsewhere the clubs second Japanese forward Ito as not had such a good time as he is yet to score in four matches. Then the last East Asian player at the club is the Korean Lee Seung-Woo who is yet to play this season.
