“Grandma, have you seen it?”
Rookie defender Cha Seung-hyun (23) of E-Land dedicated his professional debut goal to his grandmother. Cha Seung-hyun scored his professional debut goal as well as the preemptive final goal in the 34th minute of the first half of the 8th round of ‘Hanawon Q K League 2 2023’ against Bucheon FC held at Bucheon Sports Complex on the 18th.
After passing through Yeongdeungpo Technical High School, Yonsei University, and Gangneung Citizen Soccer Team, the ‘late rookie’ who joined E-Land this year passed away after mentioning his parents who visited the stadium, relatives who loved soccer, and his older sister who watched his younger brother play on TV in Japan every game. It reminded me of my old grandmother.메이저놀이터
Cha Seung-hyun said, “My parents work both incomes, so I spent a lot of time with my grandmother when I was young.”
It wasn’t a great debut goal that anyone would think of, like a fantastic mid-range shot or a sensuous volley. The ball cleared by opposing defender Yoo Seung-hyun hit Cha Seung-hyun’s left foot in front of him and headed straight into the goal, a ‘lucky goal’.
Cha Seung-hyun said, “I was dribbling (towards the opponent’s box), and I felt that the players in front of me got out of the way like ‘Miracle of Moses’. I thought I could score a goal if I gave a pass and penetrated. When) I was lucky to reach out and score,” he laughed.
Cha Seung-hyun introduced himself as a ‘later-born rookie’. He said, “Because of the 22-year-old rule, young players are debuting early. Compared to him, I debuted late.” (Lee) Jaeik hyung, who took good care of me, gave me advice on this day, ‘Let’s play with responsibility.’ I think that’s why I was able to do well.”
Right fullback Cha Seung-hyun scored the first goalless goal of the season, which was as valuable as a goal. Bucheon shot a total of 14 shots, but E-Land’s goal did not open until the end.
Cha Seung-hyun said, “I thought it would be nice to score the first goal and for our team to score more goals. However, I changed my mind in the second half when I saw the opponent go aggressive. It was too much for me,” he sighed in relief.
Cha started in 3 out of 4 league games in April. Cha Seung-hyun, who has established himself as a confident starter, will play against managing director Kim Cheon of the ‘K League 2 Round 1’ at the home stadium Mok-dong Sports Complex on the 22nd.
Cha Seung-hyun said, “I played against Gimcheon Jo Young-wook in high school and college.” .
E-Land, who won 2 wins in the last 3 games, shook off the early sluggishness and laid the foundation for a rebound.
