Celtic coach Ange Postecoglu praised Kyōgo Furuhashi (28, Celtic).
Celtic won 3-0 in the 22nd round of the Scottish Premiership (SPL) in the 2022-23 season against Livingston, which took place at Celtic Park in Glasgow, England on the 2nd (Korean time). Celtic consolidated their top spot with 67 points (22 wins, 1 draw, 1 loss).
The opening goal came in the 29th minute of the first half. Inside the penalty box, Taylor shook the net with a powerful left-footed shot. Four minutes later, the ball cleared by a Livingston defender hit Maeda Daizen’s face and headed straight into the goal. 메이저사이트
The last goal was scored by Furuhashi. Furuhashi managed to score with a left-footed shot after overtaking the defender in a counterattack situation in the first half of extra time. It was a scene where we could see Furuhashi’s dribbling skills and determination. Celtic scored three goals in the first half and won comfortably.
Furuhashi, who scored his 17th goal in the league, became the sole top scorer. From his first season, Furuhashi scored 12 goals and played an active role as a main resource. This season, while boasting more peak skills, he perfectly occupied the starting position and is making a name for himself as the best striker in the league.
“Furuhashi has good quality,” said Postecoglu. He always threatens opponents and takes his moves even when there isn’t much space. He has his finishing ability and his passion to always work hard. His energy makes us stronger.”
Oh Hyun-kyu, who wore a Celtic uniform in the winter transfer market, made his home debut by replacing Furuhashi in the 30th minute of the second half of the day. Oh Hyun-kyu, who is adapting to the league, is showing threatening moves as he increases his playing time. As he transferred midway through the season, he is expected to serve as Furuhashi’s backup for the time being.
