Seoul E-Land fighting to go up

Seoul E-Land might be a club that is just six years old but they may well be a K League 1 side in the not too distant future. They sit fifth in a very tight K League 2 with every chance of getting a play-off place as they look to make it to K League 1. 

Going strong 

The side sits just four points from the top and is on a three-game unbeaten run after a stop-start beginning to the season. Over the weekend after picking up wins over Bucheon 1995 and Jeonnam Dragons they drew with Daejeon Hana Citizen a side whom having invested heavily will be looking to make it into K League 1 too. 

It is clearly shaping up to be a much better season for the side that finished bottom of the league last year and were saved as currently in Korea we do not have a league pyramid system after the top two leagues. 

Leandro Ribeiro the Brazilian is one man you need to thank for this too as the man signed from Moldovian side FK Sheriff has made a big difference. The team needed goals and that is what they have found as the attacker has picked up six goals in 14 matches averaging a goal every 187 minutes he plays. 

Another man helping out with the goals is the German Richard Sukuta-Pasu who has three to his name having signed this summer from Chinese side Guangdong South Tigers. 

The German is fully helping his side too with his great ability in the air and his strength is a worry for any defender in the league. While despite not scoring a lot he is helping his side by making work hard for defenders with strength and ability to run off the ball. 

The player then said before last weekend “If you are an attacker, it is obviously good to score goals. However, as part of a team, it is more important for the team to produce good results. There is no easy game but I will show a good look for the team for the rest of the season while having fun.”

Next up now is the easy task of a match against top of the table Suwon on the weekend.
