Hwang Hee-chan failed to add a goal ahead of his national team run, but he recorded help to soothe his disappointment.
Wolverhampton, which played in the 20th round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England, beat Everton 3-0 on Sunday (Korea time). Maximilian Kilman, Matheus Cunha, and Craig Dawson scored one goal each. Wolverhampton, which has won three consecutive games, has closely followed 10th-ranked Chelsea again. It ranks 11th in points against Chelsea in terms of ties and goal difference.
Hwang Hee-chan has remained on the starting list. After scoring multiple goals in the match against Brentford in the previous match, he complained of back pain and was replaced early, raising concerns of injury, but there was no big problem as was known right after the match. He also played with Cunha and Pablo Sarabia.
He proactively moved from the beginning of the game and threatened Everton’s goal. He targeted the back space of Everton’s defense following João Gomes’ pass in the second minute of the first half. He deceived the defender with his unique folding move and even made a left-footed grounder cross, but Cunha, who rushed to the door, failed to score a shot. In the seventh minute of the first half, Cunha’s pass was sent to the front of the net while developing a quick counterattack.
He helped Cunha score in the eighth minute of the second half. He penetrated through the defense and received a pass from Sarabia. He entered the right side of the penalty box and sent the ball to the door. This time, Cunha finished with a shot and scored a goal.
Hwang Hee-chan, who made his third assist of this season, diligently sought a goal afterwards. At the 15th minute of the second half, Everton’s defense team got a ball that was accidentally spilled and entered the penalty box. After avoiding pressure from Everton center back James Tacowski, he shot a shot that hit the left side of the net. At the 26th minute of the second half, Cunha’s shot that was hit by a pass was caught in the hands of goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. One minute later, Sarabia had a chance through a forward pass, and her left foot shot went into the net, but no goal was recognized. Offside was declared.
Even at the end of the second half, the opportunity to add an attack point was unfortunately eliminated. He helped Pedro Netu return from injury, but he was ruled offside once again.
Hwang Hee-chan, who added one more assist on the day, has 10 goals and three assists in 20 games this season. With his offense point accumulated in this season, his overall EPL record has been 18 goals and five assists in 77 games. 월카지노
This is just one goal shy of Park’s overall score record as a pioneer of Korean Premier Leaguers. Park had 19 goals and 21 assists in 154 games throughout the Manchester United and Queens Park Rangers. If Hwang breaks Park’s record, he will become the second highest scorer in Asian Premier Leaguers after Son Heung-min (114 goals).
If the current trend continues, Park will be able to break his record in just a few games, but it will likely take some time. Hwang will leave his team for a while after the match against Everton. He will join the Korean men’s soccer team and participate in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup. If Korea does well, it will not return to the team until mid-February.
