The ‘bull’ of the wolf corps wriggles… Hwang Hee-chan, who brushed off his injuries, ‘long and wide’
Scored in the opening two games… Unique straight-line breaking and acceleration are revived
For Korean national striker Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton),
the 2022-2023 season was full of regrets.
He appeared in 27 regular league games and scored only 3 goals.
Every time his momentum rose,
The news of the first goal of the season came out only after the year had changed.
English Football Association
In January, in the 3rd round of the English Football Association (FA) Cup with Liverpool,
the beast girl scored. 안전놀이터
The first goal in the regular league did not come until March (27th round against Newcastle).
Hwang Hee-chan made a fuss about the new season.
When he left for England in July, he said, “This season,
I will focus on not getting hurt and showing good form without injury.”
As the saying goes, Hwang Hee-chan, who has been ‘liberated’ from his injury,
walks the ground without hesitation and shows off his unique reckless movements befitting his nickname ‘Bull’.
Hwang Hee-chan, who came in as a substitute in the 18th minute of the second half
of the opening match between Manchester United and the English Premier League (EPL) 2023-2024 season,
actively participated in the attack by kicking four shots after being put in.
In extra time in the second half, he dug into the right penalty box and put the opponent’s mind to rest with a left-footed shot.
Hwang Hee-chan, who seemed confident, produced results in two games after the opening.
Against Brighton & Hove Albion
On the 19th (local time), in the home game against Brighton & Hove Albion in the second round,
the beast girl reported a goal.
In the 10th minute of the second half, Hwang Hee-chan,
who was put in the front line instead of Fabio Silva,
headed a cross from the right side in a corner kick situation 6 minutes after stepping on the ground, shaking the net.
Even though Hwang Hee-chan is a substitute resource and does not have enough time to play,
Hwang Hee-chan shows the most impressive appearance among Wolverhampton’s attackers.
Wolverhampton’s offensive flow, which had already stagnated against Brighton,
who had already scored 4 goals in this game,
began to unravel little by little after Hwang Hee-chan was put in.
It is particularly encouraging that his unique straight-line breakthrough and acceleration have survived.
Wolverhampton also had a chance to score as Hwang Hee-chan,
who mainly played in the left-sided front area,
made use of his acceleration and advanced past the defender.
In the 40th minute of the second half, Hwang Hee-chan,
who drove the ball from the left side and advanced,
beat two defenders in a row.
Then, in the penalty box, he delivered an accurate pass to Rayan Aitnuri,
who had no defensive check, but Aitnuri’s touch was not sophisticated,
so it did not lead to a goal.
According to football record site Foot Mob,
Hwang Hee-chan recorded a pass success rate of 92% and one successful dribble breakthrough in addition to scoring.
The media gave Hwang Hee-chan a rating of 7.3, third in the team,
following Pablo Sarabia and Matheus Cunya.
The British BBC also saw that Hwang Hee-chan played the best part of his team.
While the Brighton players who won 4-1 received ratings of 7-8 points,
most of the Wolverhampton players were in the 4-point range.
Among them, only Hwang Hee-chan scored 5 points (5.37).
With Diego Costa and Adama Traore, who played an active role last season,
leaving the team, Wolverhampton coach Gary O’Neill is struggling with the composition of the attacking team.
While using Kunya as a built-in starter, they are experimenting with various combinations,
such as raising Sarabia, who usually played in the second line, to the front,
but after showing poor scoring ability, they lost their opening two consecutive games.
Wolverhampton scored only one goal in two games, and only Hwang Hee-chan scored.
