The 21-year-old has stepped into the void left by Giorgios Giakoumakis excellently since joining the Scottish champions in January from Suwon Samsung Bluewings. He is averaging a goal every 80 minutes or so across his ten appearances.
He was a second-half substitute in South Korea’s 2-2 friendly draw with Colombia. The Asian side had a two-goal lead at the interval, given to them by Spurs star Heung-Min Son, while the South Americans scored twice in the space of five minutes right after half-time. Oh was given 30 minutes but was barely involved with just eight touches during his time on the pitch.
Meanwhile, Maeda only watched Japan’s 1-1 draw with Uruguay. There was surprise when Celtic team-mates Kyogo Furuhashi and Reo Hatate weren’t called up. The Blue Samurai will now face Colombia and South Korea will play Uruguay.
