Taggart has 11 goals in 18 matches for Suwon, who are now in the finals places – but without the Aussie dynamo, would likely be staring at relegation.

Taggart's phenomenal Korean form is a highpoint in the 26-year-old's career. Although he started for Australia in the 2014 World Cup, the powerful, mobile striker has failed to recreate his strong scoring form outside of the A-League.

Lean spells at Fulham and Dundee preceded another prolific A-League venture, where despite an injury-hit spell at Brisbane Roar, Taggart earned a move to the Korean club.

Now Taggart has finally hit his stride overseas, already earning rave reviews within the Korean media and propelling himself to the top of the K-League scoring charts.

The latest was an excellent poacher's effort, tucking away a rebound to double Suwon's lead in a 2-0 win against Sangju Sangmu.

Taggart's form puts him in prime position for the K-League All Star's match against Juventus, where he could go toe-to-toe against Cristiano Ronaldo.

While he's had to settle for a place on the bench for many of Suwon's matches despite his incredible scoring form, Taggart told The World Game that it's these sort of opportunities and challenges that the A-league simply cannot replicate.

“In the A-League, most teams have a starting XI and that’s about it,” he said.

“We have a big squad here and it’s important to rotate to make sure everybody is fresh and motivated.

“All the young boys here are top-quality as well and there’s huge competition for places. That’s what you want really and it’s what makes you a real player."

Graham Arnold, who selected Taggart to start in the Socceroos' last match, a 1-0 loss to South Korea in Seoul, will be hoping that the striker's current hot-streak can translate to national team level.

While Taggart's facing stiff competition at club level, striking options are few and far between for the national team, leaving Taggart a sole, if very promising, hope for upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

“If you go through your whole career with your place in the line-up unchallenged then, in my opinion, it’s not exactly pushing you to become the best player," Taggart added.

“Footballers thrive on competition and I plan to keep pushing those boundaries until I can’t push them anymore.

“I love it here and hope it’s just the beginning. I think there’s a lot more to come in all aspects.”
