Celtic’s Oh scores his fifth goal of the season. His excellent positioning earned him the ‘brightest spark’ award.

Even after scoring the first goal, Celtic collapsed.

It started in the 22nd minute when Maeda was sent off for accumulating cautions.

Celtic, down to 10 men, conceded a penalty goal for a foul, followed by a stunning mistake.

They conceded a goal in the 40th minute when the goalkeeper failed to get to a shot that was headed straight at him.

It was even said that Celtic, who had already clinched the league title, were “already on vacation” – except for Oh.

He was surrounded by three defenders in front of the goal and calmly slotted the ball home for his fifth goal of the season.

Even more impressive than the goal was the play.

The way he took the high ball to his chest, spun around and kicked it past the defense was intimidating.

He took eight shots on goal, more than any other player on the team, including one that found the back of the net as he positioned himself to anticipate the drop zone.

Despite his team’s loss, Oh was hailed as “the brightest spark,” and now has a series of A matches against Peru and El Salvador next month, which Klinsmann, who saw him in action in Scotland, has high hopes for.

He’s also a potential wildcard for South Korea’s Hwang Sun-hong, who will be looking to win his third consecutive Asian Games gold medal.
