Hwang Hee-chan, home game goal challenge in 471 days… West Ham vs relegation match
Attention is focusing on whether Hwang Hee-chan (27), who has been trusted by newly appointed coach Julen Lopetegui, will be able to score a goal in front of the home crowd after 471 days.
Hwang Hee-chan’s team, Wolverhampton, will play the home game of round 20 of the English Premier League in the 2022-2023 season against West Ham at Molyneux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England at 0:00 (Korean time) on the 15th.
Wolverhampton are 19th in the league and in the relegation zone, while West Ham are 17th and close to the relegation zone. Depending on the result of this match, there is a possibility that the competitive structure of the relegation zone will change.
Hwang Hee-chan barely had a chance to play before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but after the World Cup, he is playing in every game. This is because the new head coach Lopetegui, who was appointed during the World Cup, is using Hwang Hee-chan moderately after the World Cup.
Hwang Hee-chan has played in all 6 games since the season resumed, 4 of which are starts. In the FA Cup match against Liverpool on the 7th, he even scored his first goal of the season.
Attention is focusing on whether Hwang Hee-chan, whose condition has recently peaked, will be able to shake the net in front of the home crowd after a long time. If Hwang Hee-chan scores a goal in this home match, it will be 471 days since October 2, 2021.
