South Korea international striker Hwang Eui-jo (FC Seoul) has vowed to fight on with his former club Nottingham Forest.
Jürgen Klinsmann’s men’s national soccer team drew 1-1 with El Salvador at the Daejeon World Cup Stadium on Tuesday. It was a disappointing result for El Salvador, who are ranked 75th in the FIFA rankings. 메이저놀이터
However, it was encouraging that Hwang Eui-jo, who had been suffering from a goal drought while playing as the main top striker, finally found the back of the net. Hwang, who was substituted for Lee Jae-sung at the start of the second half, opened the scoring with an exquisite shot four minutes into the second half.
After receiving a cutback from Hwang Hee-chan, Hwang Ui-jo spun and fired a right-footed turner into the bottom left corner of the goal. It had been a year since Hwang had scored for the national team since June 14 last year against Egypt.
Although the game was marred by a late equalizer from a set piece, Hwang’s reawakening has reignited the race for the top spot in the national team.
Speaking to the Mixed Zone after the game, Hwang said he hopes to keep the momentum going and continue to challenge for his original club, Nottingham.
“Of course, it feels good to score a goal,” Hwang said of his comeback goal, but he wasn’t overjoyed, “I wish we could have won.”
“Coach Klinsmann wanted us to be aggressive. We practiced two-tops in training. We practiced how to move organically when we were two-tops. We tried to be a little more aggressive,” he said, explaining the early second-half adjustments and the two-tops.
“When I came on, he asked me to come down, both defensively and offensively. He also emphasized that I should hold the opponent’s defensive midfielders.”
Prior to his call-up, Hwang had scored two consecutive league goals for Seoul and regained his goal-scoring touch.
“I definitely feel more comfortable,” Hwang said. “I’m definitely more comfortable,” he said, “I have a sense of scoring, but the reason I chose Korea was to improve my performance, to play a lot of games and regain my good form.” “I haven’t played a lot, but now I’ve played a lot and my performance has improved, so I’m satisfied,” he added.
He vowed to continue his challenge at Nottingham.
“I think it’s a challenge as always. I came to Europe at a late age, and I had a good experience playing a lot of games for a long time. I want to challenge myself one more time, and I think it will be a good time for me to go back to my club and challenge myself,” he said, indicating that he will stay with Nottingham rather than move on. 토토사이트추천
