Hwang Hee-chan’s first goal of the season against Liverpool in the 3rd minute
Hwang Hee-chan (26) started scoring for the first time this season in Wolverhampton, an English professional soccer team.
Hwang Hee-chan scored a goal to balance 2-2 in the 21st minute of the second half in the 2022-23 England Football Association (FA) Cup 3rd round (Round of 64) against Liverpool held at Anfield in Liverpool, England on the 8th (Korean time). Hwang Hee-chan, who started from the bench, scored a goal 3 minutes after being substituted for Ruben Neves in the 18th minute of the second half.
This is Hwang Hee-chan’s first goal for Wolverhampton this season. It has been about 11 months since Hwang Hee-chan scored a goal in an official Wolverhampton match against Arsenal in February last year.
Hwang Hee-chan, who scored 5 league goals for Wolverhampton last season, did not get many opportunities to play this season, and he seldom tasted goals and recorded only 2 assists ahead.
At the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, he scored a dramatic final goal to complete a 2-1 come-from-behind victory against Portugal in the final group stage match, leading Korea to advance to the round of 16. After that, his position in his team also began to change.
Following coach Bruno Raz, who was sacked before the World Cup due to poor performance, Hulen Lopetegui, who took the helm of Wolverhampton and began to lead it in earnest after the World Cup, appointed Hwang Hee-chan as a starter one after another.
Hwang Hee-chan was included in the replacement list that day, but was put in as a joker when the team was dragged 1-2, and he did his part clearly and imprinted his presence more deeply.
With Hwang Hee-chan’s equalizing goal, Wolverhampton escaped the risk of defeat and drew 2-2 with Liverpool, deciding whether or not to participate in the next round with a replay.
On this day, Wolverhampton took the lead with a lucky goal thanks to the opponent’s mistake. In the 26th minute of the first half, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson kicked the ball hard in the middle of the penalty area, and it caught on the foot of Gonzalo Gueds, who tried to press, and Gueds immediately hit a right-footed shot and shook the net.
However, Liverpool balanced the score with Darwin Núñez’s equalizer in the 45th minute of the first half, and Muhammad Salah’s come-from-behind goal in the 7th minute of the second half, changing the flow. 토토사이트
Afterwards, coach Lopetegi activated three replacement cards at once, including Hwang Hee-chan, in the 18th minute of the second half, and Hwang Hee-chan saved the team from a crisis.
In the 21st minute of the second half, Matheus Cunha stabbed the ball from the left side of the penalty area, and Hwang Hee-chan exquisitely slipped in and pushed it in to score the first goal of the season.
In the 36th minute of the second half, Hwang Hee-chan’s pass followed by Tot Gomez’s shot went in, and Hwang Hee-chan almost added an assist, but the offside was pointed out and the goal was not scored again.
Cody Hakpo, who moved from Eindhoven to Liverpool at the end of last month after leading the Netherlands to the quarterfinals at the Qatar World Cup, made his debut as a Liverpool player by starting the match that day. Hakpo, who formed the starting lineup with Nunez and Salach, was replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the 39th minute of the second half.
