Wolverhampton players celebrate their goal

Wolverhampton Wanderers, an English professional soccer team with Hwang Hee-chan absent due to injury, defeated Fulham and advanced to 8th place.

Wolverhampton won 2-1 over Fulham in the 28th round home game of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) season held at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England on the 10th (Korean time).

Hwang Hee-chan, who is also a striker for the national team, missed two consecutive games.

Hwang Hee-chan injured his hamstring (the muscle behind the thigh) in the English Football Association (FA) Cup round of 16 home game against Brighton & Hove Albion on the 29th of last month, and was diagnosed that it would take about six weeks to recover.

Wolverhampton, who won despite the absence of Hwang Hee-chan, rose two places from 10th to 8th (41 points).

Wolverhampton is on the rise, with 4 wins and 1 loss in the last 5 league games.

Wolverhampton scored the first goal in the 7th minute of the second half when Rayan Aitnuri completed a cutback from the right with a right-footed shot from Joao Gomes in a free kick situation.

Neto leaves the ground

In the 22nd minute of the second half, Nelson Semedo’s right-footed non-stop shot from the penalty area, after receiving Gomes’ sensational heel pass, was deflected off the body of Fulham midfielder Tom Cairney, leading to an additional goal.

This was recorded as Cairney’s own goal.

Fulham pulled one point back with Alex Iwobi’s goal in the 53rd minute of the second half, but it was too late to turn the game around.

Wolverhampton could not smile at ease even after winning.

Just before the end of the first half, the team’s ace, Pedro Neto, was replaced after complaining of a left hamstring problem.

As a result, Wolverhampton suffered bad news as all three players who led the attack in the first half of the season were withdrawn from the line due to hamstring injuries.

Frontline resource Matheus Cunha suffered an injury in the same area in the middle of last month, and Hwang Hee-chan also collapsed at the end of last month. 섯다
