National soccer team striker Hwang Ui-jo made his return to the European league after eight months.
He recently moved on loan from Nottingham Forest in the English Premier League (EPL) to Norwich City, a member of the Championship (2nd Division), in the home game against Stoke City in the 6th round of the 2023-2024 regular season, which ended at Carrow Road in Norwich, England on the 17th (Korean time). He came on as a substitute for Adam Uche Aida in the 15th minute of the second half and played for about 30 minutes.
However, he did not record a goal or assist. The team won 1-0 thanks to Jack Stacey’s go-ahead goal in the 44th minute of the first half. Norwich City is competing for the lead in the early stages with 4 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss (13 points).
After a successful career at French Girondins Bordeaux and entering the EPL through Nottingham last summer, he went on a one-season loan to Olympiakos (Greece) as scheduled. However, after going through 12 games without scoring, his rental contract was terminated early, and he went on loan again to FC Seoul in the first half of this year. After returning to the K-League and playing consistently to improve his sense of style, he returned to Nottingham this summer and attempted to become a starting player, but it was not an success. From the beginning, he was classified as ‘out of power’ and had to find his new home. Just then, Norwich reached out to him and he made a surprise loan move.
Hwang Ui-jo, who participated in the two-game international match against Wales on the 8th and Saudi Arabia on the 13th held in England, returned to Norwich with his game sense improved. He was named on the replacement list that day and took the place of Aida, who played as a front-line starting agent. Although he failed to increase his attack points, he showed his strength again on the European stage.먹튀검증
It has been about eight months since Hwang Ui-jo played in an official match wearing a club uniform in Europe since the cup match against Atromitos during his time at Olympias on January 12.
On this day, Bae Jun-ho, who had recently been called up to the national team A for the first time, appeared as a starter at Stoke City. He was unable to see a direct confrontation between the two as he retreated to the bench one minute after Hwang Ui-jo was brought in.
Bae Jun-ho, who made his debut as a substitute in the game against Preston on the 2nd, not long after joining Stoke City, entered the starting lineup after two games and is gaining the trust of manager Alex Neil. However, he also failed to increase his attack points that day.
