Another hamstring injury arose. The fallen Hwang Hee-chan (27, Wolverhampton) does not look light. This is even more so if the injury has been hardened by a ‘chronic disease’.
Hee-chan Hwang took the lead in the team’s 3-0 victory by starting in the 22nd round against Liverpool in the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-2023 season held at Moline Stadium in Wolverhampton, England on the 5th (Korean time).
He contributed to the opening goal. Hwang Hee-chan, who penetrated to the right of the penalty box in the 5th minute of the first half, attempted a cutback, but the pass hit Liverpool Joel Matip’s foot and went straight into the goal. Afterwards, Wolverhampton, who took the lead, won 3-0 with Craig Dawson in the 11th minute of the first half and Hubin Neves scoring consecutive goals in the 26th minute of the second half in a counterattack situation.
It is a meaningful victory. In the meantime, Wolverhampton has been weak against Liverpool, but it has been 13 years since 2010 that it has beaten Liverpool in the league. Wolverhampton, who added 3 points, raised the ranking from 18th to 15th (20 points).
However, the joy was short-lived. Hwang Hee-chan’s hamstring injury flared up again. In the 39th minute of the first half, while sprinting aiming for space behind the opponent near the half line, he grabbed the back of his right thigh and collapsed. Hwang Hee-chan, who sent a replacement sign to the bench, hit the ground as if he was upset with his ‘injury’ and left the ground.
The concern is high. Every time his condition rises, he is caught up in a hamstring injury. In December 2021, he suffered a hamstring injury against Brighton and missed the second round of the group stage due to hamstring pain at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
This is the second season only. It is a more regrettable situation because after the appointment of coach Lopetegi in November of last year, he was trusted and showed a good figure with built-in resources. Coach Lopetegui approached Hwang Hee-chan after he left the field and comforted him by stroking his hair.
After the game, coach Lopetegi said, “It is unknown how long Hwang Hee-chan will rest. He understood all the tactical parts.” All players have to prepare.” 슬롯사이트
The hamstring is an injury with a high probability of recurrence. This is especially true for Hwang Hee-chan, whose strength lies in sprinting and penetrating the opponent’s space behind him. Hwang Hee-chan has suffered four hamstring injuries since his professional debut. This is why the possibility of recurrence cannot be ignored if the same level of pressure is applied before complete healing and recovery. ○ The
injury cycle is getting shorter. The injury resurfaced two months after the World Cup in Qatar. As Hwang Hee-chan, who is firmly established in the team, it is clear that the voice of concern towards him is growing as he is the current and main resource of the Korean national soccer team.
