‘Gomes multi-goal’ Wolverhampton wins 2-1… Smiling in both Tottenham and 2 games of the season

Wolverhampton Wanderers once again defeated Tottenham Hotspur (England) while national team strikers Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan remained silent and had no attack points.

Wolverhampton defeated Tottenham 2-1 in the 25th round away game of the 2023-2024 English Professional Football Premier League (EPL) held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 18th (Korean time).

This game attracted attention as a match between Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), who are responsible for the front line of the Korean national team. 온라인카지노사이트

After being eliminated by Jordan with a score of 0-2 in the semifinals of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup, which ended this month, they immediately returned to their teams and tried to restart the scoring.

In particular, national team captain Son Heung-min had a physical collision with Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), who was considered the next generation of Korean soccer, the day before the match against Jordan, and since it was known to the public that the teamwork within the national team was shattered, there was interest in what kind of performance he would show dragged.

In addition, the match on this day was the first match between the two players since the Korean national team coach Jürgen Klinsmann was sacked on the 16th.

Son Heung-min, who injured his finger due to the so-called 'Table Tennis Gate', left the field today with the index and middle fingers of his right hand taped, and played the full time as a left-wing striker, but was unable to accumulate attack points.

Hwang Hee-chan, Wolverhampton's top scorer, who took charge of the team's front line after Mateusz Cunha left due to injury, was also silent.

Hwang Hee-chan, who started as a front-line striker, was on the pitch for 88 minutes, but did not have a significant scoring opportunity.

In this season's EPL, Son Heung-min ranks 5th with 12 goals (6 assists), and Hwang Hee-chan ranks 8th with 10 goals (3 assists), ranking at the top of the scoring race.

While the Korean attackers were silent, it was Wolverhampton who had the final laugh.

Wolverhampton, Hwang Hee-chan's team, which won 2-1 in the last 12th round match, won 3 points with the same score on this day and was all smiles in this season's match against Tottenham.

Joao Gomes scored multiple goals and spearheaded Wolverhampton's victory.

Gomes, who jumped up from a corner kick situation in the 42nd minute of the first half and hit Tottenham's net with a high header, also scored in the 18th minute of the second half.

In a counterattack situation, he scored the winning goal by connecting Pedro Neto's pass, which ran deep into the opponent's penalty box, with a non-stop shot.

Tottenham scored a 1-1 equalizer in extra time in the first half through Dejan Kulusevski, but failed to counterattack after Gomes' second goal.

Tottenham coach Anzhi Postekoglou removed Richarlison and Timo Werner in the 26th minute of the second half and brought in Brennan Johnson and Rodrigo Bentancur, and tried to make changes such as changing Son Heung-min's activity radius to the front line, but it did not come to fruition.

Wolverhampton, who happily took 3 points, recorded their 10th win of the season (5 draws, 10 losses).

They have the same number of points as 10th place Chelsea (10 wins, 5 draws, 10 losses) at 35, but they are behind in goal difference and are in 11th place.

On the other hand, Tottenham (14 wins, 5 draws, 6 losses, 47 points), which failed to accumulate points, failed to enter the top 4.

The point difference between 5th place Tottenham and 4th place Aston Villa (15 wins, 4 draws, 6 losses, 49 points) is 2.
