The EPL match between Korea and Japan is hot
1 goal and 2 assists in the opening 2 games…
Heung-Min Son and Hee-Chan Hwang, who started the season in a healthy way,
‘Red Horse’ Mitoma, who hit first, hunt for goals with pride
The scoring competition between the Korean and Japanese national teams has begun in the English Premier League,
the center of world football.
In the second round of the 2023-2024 EPL between Wolverhampton and Brighton and Hove Albion,
which was held on the 19th at Molyneux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England,
strikers from Korea and Japan started scoring side by side. 카지노사이트탑
Wolverhampton’s Hwang Hee-chan replaced Fabio Silva in the 10th minute of the second half,
when the team was trailing 0-4 and was losing, and scored a chase goal in the 6th minute.
He received a corner kick from the right with his head and shook the Brighton net.
Son Heung-min, the core of Tottenham and the ‘ace’ of Korean football,
has not yet been able to raise an attack point, and Hwang Eui-jo of Nottingham is looking for opportunities to participate.
Wolverhampton were unable to score a follow-up, and the match ended in Brighton’s 4-1 victory.
Hwang Hee-chan took some of the spotlight with a chase goal,
but the main character of the match was Japan national team winger Mitoma Kaoru,
who also scored ‘1 goal and 1 assist’.
Mitoma scored the opening goal in the 15th minute of the first half with a breakthrough that was close to a miracle.
It was Mitoma, who caught the ball from the left sideline, broke through about 45m alone and fired a right-footed grounder shot into the lower right corner of the goal.
Five Wolverhampton players blocked it one after another,
but it seemed that Mitoma’s dribble was not at all sure where it would go.
As Mitoma ran like a ‘red horse’, and the Wolverhampton players were stripped without even being able to compete.
Mitoma also assisted Pervis Estupinyan’s 2-0 extra goal in the 46th minute of the first half.
He delivered the ball with an accurate cutback from the left.
Its Mitoma, who scored 1 goal and 1 assist, was selected as the ‘Man of the Match (MOTM)’,
which is equivalent to the MVP of the match.
Mitoma, who helped the opening goal in the season opener against Luton (Brighton won 4-1),
led the team to consecutive victories with offensive points in two consecutive matches.
In the competition between Korean and Japanese players, it seems that Japan took the first step.
Mitoma is superior to Korean players such as Heung-Min Son and Hee-Chan Hwang in not only the number of attack points until the second round (Japan 3, Korea 1), but also in terms of ‘impact’ in the game.
Mitoma led Brighton’s high flight with 10 goals and 8 assists in the official match,
including 7 goals and 6 assists in the English Premier League.
Mitoma, who has established himself as an Asian striker next to Son Heung-min (14 goals and 6 assists in the official match last season) on the EPL stage,
is looking to surpass the ‘best’ position this season.
In addition, as midfielder Endo Wataru, who played in Stuttgart in the Bundesliga,
joined the big club Liverpool on the 18th, the position of ‘Japanese football’ in the EPL has widened.
Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan suffered from bad news last season, such as frequent injuries.
The competition between Korean leaguers who started the new season in good health and rising Japanese leaguers
is expected to be another reason for weekend soccer fans to stay awake at night.
