The reason why Hwang Eui-jo (31, Norwich City) was substituted early after scoring a goal has been revealed.
Hwang started Norwich City’s away match against Watford in the 18th round of the 2023-2024 English Championship at Vicarage Road in London, England, on March 29, and scored a goal in the 12th minute with Norwich leading 1-0.
It was Hwang’s third league goal in as many games. Hwang’s bold mid-range strike gave the Canaries a 2-0 lead, but Norwich were unable to hold on for a 2-3 defeat.
However, Hwang was substituted in the 17th minute of the first half, just five minutes after his goal 캡틴토토 주소. It was feared that Hwang’s fitness was in question.
Norwich City manager Davit Wagner told the Mirror, “It was a hamstring injury. We’ll get it checked out and see how serious it is. If he’s out for a long time, it’s a big problem, but we have a lot of experience dealing with injuries. We’ll see how long his injury lasts.”
Some wondered if Hwang’s suspension from the national team for illegal filming might have affected his playing time. “I’m going to judge him on his performance,” Dagner said.
“He’s in good form right now,” Wagner said. He’s been scoring goals for the Korean national team, and he’s scored in two consecutive games since he’s been back with us. He’s playing very hard these days. I think it’s because he’s adapted to England that he’s playing so well.” If Hwang keeps up his form, it means he will continue to play for the club.
On March 18, Hwang appeared at the police station and was investigated as a suspect for taking a video without the prior consent of the person he had sex with. The victim accused him of illegally filming her without her consent. Hwang has denied all allegations, saying that he lost his cell phone when he was playing in Greece in June and the video was circulated, and that the sex and filming were consensual with the victim.
Hwang’s case made headlines in the United Kingdom. “Norwich striker Hwang Ui-jo has been investigated by South Korean police for illegally filming a sex tape,” the Mirror reported on March 30. The Korea Football Association has suspended him from the national team. Hwang is denying the allegations,” and quickly reported the news from South Korea. His club, Norwich City, is also aware of the case.
Jürgen Klinsmann decided to play him against China despite the fact that he was under police investigation as a suspect. Eventually, civil society organizations and even the political sphere took up the issue of Hwang’s case.
In a belated response to public opinion, the Korea Football Association (KFA) held an ethics committee meeting on the 28th and officially announced that “Hwang Ui-jo, who is under police investigation for illegal filming, will not be selected for the national team until the conclusion of the investigative agency on the facts.”
The day after Hwang’s suspension, he returned to action for his club, scoring a goal in two consecutive games, showing that he was undaunted. However, a hamstring injury put the brakes on his rise. It is unlikely that Hwang will be able to play against Bristol City on March 3. He is expected to make his return against Preston on the 10th.
