Hwang Hee-chan, who scored his first goal of the season with a 2-2 tie in the third round of the English Football Association (FA) Cup against Liverpool on the 8th, failed to hunt consecutive goals, but he has another chance to start after starting in recent league matches.
Wolverhampton, who beat fourth-division team Gillingham with Hwang Hee-chan, who played a big role in the League Cup round of 16, failed to advance to the semifinals after losing 3-4 in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw with Nottingham.
Wolverhampton, led by Gonzalo Geds, Raul Jimenez and Hwang Hee-chan’s attackers, gave Willie Boli the first goal in the 18th minute of the first half and was dragged around. Wolverhampton players tried to kick a corner kick from the left, but Bolly pushed the ball that hit and floated.
Hwang Hee-chan connected Jimenez’s cross from the right side with a left-footed non-stop shot inside the penalty area in the 40th minute of the first half but failed to lead to an equalizer due to his opponent Dean Henderson’s good defense.
Wolverhampton, who had been fighting back, finally balanced in the 19th minute of the second half. Hwang Hee-chan sensibly connected Nelsong Semedu’s pass near the half-line to start a counterattack, and Mateus Nunes dribbled through and stabbed him into the penalty area. Jimenez tapped a low cross from Matteo Cunha to score an equalizer in front of the net.
Since then, both teams have failed to score the final goal, resulting in a penalty shootout. After the first kickers of both teams missed side by side, both second and fourth players succeeded, leading to a tight balance, but Hodge’s shot as Wolverhampton’s fifth runner was blocked by Henderson after Nottingham’s fifth kicker Jack callback succeeded. 안전놀이터
