English Premier League Wolverhampton Wanderers experienced the pain of losing their ‘bull’ at the same time as the joy of escaping from the relegation zone by catching strong Liverpool.
Wolverhampton defeated Liverpool 3-0 in the 2022-2023 Premier League Round 22 home game held at the Molyneux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England on the 5th (Korean time). Wolverhampton, who caught a big fish, climbed to 15th place with 20 points and escaped the relegation zone.
Hwang Hee-chan, who started the game that day, scored an own goal in the 5th minute of the first half when a cross from the right flank hit Liverpool defender Joel Matip’s leg and went into the net. It was a scene that continued strong against Liverpool. 안전놀이터
In the 12th minute of the first half, Craig Dawson’s additional goal from a free kick situation caused bad news in the 38th minute when Wolverhampton led 2-0. In a counterattack situation, Hwang Hee-chan, who was sprinting to receive a pass from Matheus Nunes, collapsed while grabbing his right thigh. As the medical team sent a replacement signal to the bench, Hwang Hee-chan eventually finished the game with a hamstring injury.
Hwang Hee-chan collapsed with a hamstring injury ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Hwang Hee-chan, who suffered his second hamstring injury this season, is unlikely to be able to play for the time being.
After the game, Wolverhampton coach Julen Lopetegui said, “It’s unfortunate that we lost Hwang Hee-chan due to a hamstring injury,” and added, “We don’t know how long he will be out in the future.”
