Hwang Hee-chan (27) of Wolverhampton’s ‘Bull’ in the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL) took the lead in catching Liverpool, the team’s natural enemy, by inducing an own goal and taking the lead, but suffered another hamstring injury.
Hwang Hee-chan was involved in the team’s opening goal in the 5th minute of the first half in the 2022-2023 EPL round 22 home game against Liverpool held at Molyneux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England on the 5th (Korean time) and led Wolverhampton’s 3-0 victory.
Wolverhampton recorded 5 wins, 5 draws and 11 losses (20 points) and jumped to 15th in the league rankings. It is two points behind Everton (18 points) in 18th place in the relegation zone. Wolverhampton is maintaining a good flow with 2 wins in the last 3 games. On the other hand, Liverpool, which has been sluggish this season, is in 10th place (29 points). Liverpool have 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses in their last 5 matches.
In the 5th minute of the first half, Hwang Hee-chan received a roving pass from the right side of the goal area, bypassed the opposing defender, and then fired a grounder cross toward a colleague rushing from the center. However, this hit the leg of Joel Matip of Liverpool and became a goal. It was recorded as Matip’s own goal, but it was actually a goal made by Hwang Hee-chan.
Liverpool is strong enough to be called the natural enemy of Wolverhampton. Wolverhampton have not won a single win since winning their first EPL league win against Liverpool since 2010. In particular, after being promoted to the EPL in 2018, he showed a weak appearance by recording all losses in league matches.
However, on the contrary, Hwang Hee-chan is showing a particularly strong side to Liverpool. Hwang Hee-chan recorded 2 goals and 1 assist in his personal career against Liverpool. In the 2019-2020 season, while playing in Salzburg, Austria, he scored one goal and one assist in the group stage match of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) (Salzburg lost 3-4).
Also this season, as a member of Wolverhampton, he participated in the third round of the English Football Association (FA) Cup and scored a 2-2 equalizer against Liverpool that turned the match into a replay. 메이저사이트
Despite his great performance, Hwang Hee-chan couldn’t help but laugh. This is because he was substituted for Adama Traore through injury in the 42nd minute of the first half. Hwang Hee-chan stopped while trying to break through and sent a replacement sign to the bench. He then grabbed the back of his right thigh (hamstring) and collapsed. Previously, Hwang Hee-chan was unable to play two qualifying games at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar due to a left hamstring injury.
Hwang Hee-chan has recently been gaining the trust of coach Hulen Lopetegui and establishing himself as a starter, so it is regrettable that he will not be able to play for a while.
Wolverhampton took a 2-0 lead with Craig Dawson’s additional goal in the 12th minute of the first half. In the 26th minute of the second half, Traoré’s grounder cross followed by Hubeng Neves’ shot, winning 3-0.
