My greatest goal: Lars Veldwijk

accreditation

The 30-year-old currently plies his trade with Suwon FC in South Korea's K League 1 where he recently ended the 2021 campaign as the division's second-highest goalscorer with 18 goals in 37 appearances.

Included in that tally was a remarkable four-goal haul in July which inspired the newly-promoted Suwon to a 5-2 come-from-behind win over the then-reigning Asian champions, Ulsan FC, and which he describes as the best performance of his career.

"I think it was my goals against Ulsan," the seven-cap South Africa international tells Kickoff.com when asked to name his favourite goal. "It's difficult to choose one goal but overall, I think that was the best game I ever played."

"Scoring four goals and getting an assist in an away game against the Asian Champions League winners, three of which came within like 11 or 12 minutes of each other in the first half, was an unbelievable feeling," he adds.

"The third or fourth goal I scored was of very good quality, and even the first one, the header, was very good as well so it's very difficult to choose one goal. For sure, though, it was the game of my life."
