Hwang Hee-chan explodes with his third goal of the season against Liverpool… Rises to 4th place in PL scoring → Leads 1-0 in the first half

Hwang Hee-chan, who returned to his team after the international break, scored his third goal of the season in the home game against the strong team Liverpool.

He has been showing off his strengths for Liverpool since he played in Austria.

Wolverhampton of the English Premier League, where Hwang Hee-chan plays, played a home game against Liverpool in the 5th round of the 2023/24 Premier League at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England, starting at 8:30 pm on the 16th and finished the first half with a 1-0 lead.

Before today’s game, Wolverhampton had 1 win, 3 losses (3 points), and was only in 15th place. On the other hand, Liverpool is in 3rd place with 3 wins and 1 draw (10 points).

Meanwhile, Wolverhampton coach Gary O’Neill returned Hwang Hee-chan, the team’s highest scorer this season, to the starting lineup and appointed him as the leader of the charge against Liverpool. Coach O’Neill appointed Portuguese Jose Sa as the goalkeeper and lined up Nelson Semedo (Portugal), Max Kilman (England), Craig Dawson (England), and Rayan Ai-Nouri (Algeria) in the back four.

In midfield, Jean-Richner Bellegarde (France), who was making his Premier League debut that day, along with Joao Gomes (Brazil) and Mario Lemina (Gabon), appeared. The front three is comprised of Pedro Neto (Portugal), Matheus Cunha (Brazil), and Hwang Hee-chan from the left.

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s back four consists of, from the left, Andrew Robertson (Scotland), Joe Gomez (England), Joel Matip (Cameroon), and Jael Kwansa (England), with Brazil national team goalkeeper Alisson Becker guarding the goal. The midfield consists of Curtis Jones (England), Alexis McAlister (England), and Dominique Szoboslaui (Hungary). The top three are Diogo Jota (Portugal), Cody Hakpo (Netherlands), and Mohamed Salah (Egypt).

Japanese midfielder Wataru Endo, who moved to Liverpool this summer, started on the bench against Wolverhampton.

Coach O’Neill’s decision to launch a powerful counterattack against Liverpool, which was objectively superior in terms of power, was spot on. This is because Hwang Hee-chan scored a goal in the 7th minute of the first half when the score was 0-0, giving Wolverhampton the lead.

Wolverhampton blocked Liverpool’s attack, and Neto, who was on the left side, dribbled about 60 meters like a whirlwind, then passed three opposing defenders on the left side of the penalty area in an instant and crossed low to the other side. At this time, Hwang Hee-chan rushed in and fired a right-footed diagonal shot from the right side of the goal area.

Alisson Becker, a world-class Brazilian goalkeeper guarding the Liverpool goal, quickly blocked Hwang Hee-chan’s shot, but the ball had already crossed the goal line. As if Hwang Hee-chan had confirmed the goal early on, he ran in front of the home fans, jumping up and down and raising his fist, cheering and celebrating to his heart’s content.

This day’s goal was Hwang Hee-chan’s third goal of the season. In just five games, he has scored as many goals as he scored in the Premier League last season. He also succeeded in scoring goals in two consecutive games for the first time since joining Wolverhampton in 2021.

Hwang Hee-chan started on the bench this season as well, but is regaining his starting spot thanks to his ability by scoring two goals.

Hwang Hee-chan, who came on in the 18th minute of the second half and played 27 minutes in the opening away game against Manchester United on the 14th of last month, came on in the 10th minute of the second half when the team was down 0-4 against Brighton on August 19th, and scored a header in 5 minutes to open the new season. He exploded his Premier League magic gun.

Based on this goal, Hwang Hee-chan made his first start of the season in the away game against Everton on August 26, but he felt something wrong with his hamstring (back of the thigh muscle), a chronic injury area, during the first half, and was substituted right after the end of the first half. However, it turned out that it was not a serious injury, so he was substituted in the 15th minute of the second half against Crystal Palace in the 4th round, and this time, he scored a goal to tie the score at 1-1 in the 20th minute of the second half, 5 minutes after entering the ground, to energize the team.

Afterwards, Hwang Hee-chan joined the Klinsmann team for their two-game away trip to England, playing as a substitute in the match against Wales on the 8th, and starting as a starter in the match against Saudi Arabia on the 13th. After it was confirmed that there was no major problem with his body after two international matches, Coach O’Neill again took out the selection card for Hwang Hee-chan.

And he proved his rise by scoring the first goal 7 minutes after starting.

Hwang Hee-chan follows national team senior Son Heung-min (Tottenham), who scored a hat trick against Burnley on the 2nd, along with Erling Holland (Man City, 6 goals), Evan Ferguson (Brighton), and Brian Mbomo (Brentford, 4 goals). Ranked tied for 4th place in Premier League scoring.

Hwang Hee-chan became famous due to comments made by Jurgen Klopp, the world-famous coach of Liverpool, ahead of the game.

‘Hwang’ was the first thing that came to mind when Coach Klopp said that he would not let down his guard against lowly ranked Wolverhampton. Coach Klopp said, “If you look at the Wolverhampton squad, good (threatening) players like Hwang (Hee-chan) and Sasha Kalajdjic are not even starting.”

He showed his determination to continue his all-out effort against Wolverhampton and pointed out Hwang Hee-chan as the reason. Coach Klopp’s remarks were ultimately correct.

Hwang Hee-chan recorded 1 goal and 1 assist against Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League group stage match in the 2019/20 season while playing for Salzburg, Austria.

He also scored a goal against Liverpool in the English바카라사이트 Football Association (FA) Cup last season, and often created impressive scenes against Liverpool, such as inducing an own goal in league games. This day was no different, and after shaking up the Liverpool defense from left and right with Neto, he scored a goal.

Wolverhampton put the opponent in a difficult position by effectively breaking through Liverpool’s forward pressure even after Hwang Hee-chan’s first goal.

In the 28th minute of the first half, Hwang Hee-chan caught Neto’s dribble and crossed to the other side from the right side of the penalty area, but was blocked by Liverpool’s defense and was unable to shoot.

One minute later, in the 29th minute of the first half, Wolverhampton had Dawson attempt a header from an unmarked corner kick, but it missed the goal and hit the ground. In the 34th minute of the first half, Neto again broke through the left side and crossed to the other side, and Cunha had a solo chance, but failed to score as he shot with his chest rather than his head.

In the 37th minute of the first half, when opposing striker Jota broke through the left flank, Hwang Hee-chan came down deep to the goal line and used his back to block Jota’s will to break through, receiving a lot of applause.

In the extra time of the first half, Wolverhampton players used their bodies to block two shots by the opposing team’s ace Salah, and then goalkeeper Sah instinctively blocked Szoboslaui’s missed shot to preserve the 1-0 lead in the first half.
