Striker Oh Hyeon-gyu, who joined Celtic, a prestigious Scottish league, reaffirmed the power of his powerful Japanese teammates.
Oh Hyun-gyu played an active role as a substitute in the home game against Livingston FC in the 24th round of the Scottish Premiership in the 2022-23 season held at Celtic Park in Glasgow, Scotland on the 2nd (Korean time).
In the 30th minute of the second half when the team was leading 3-0, he was replaced by Japanese striker Kyogo Furuhashi and stepped on the ground.
Oh Hyun-gyu, who made his debut in front of the home fans for the first time after his transfer, showed active movement in the front line and harassed the opposing defenders.
In the 45th minute of the second half, he tried to reach out when a teammate crossed, but was blocked by the opponent’s defense and unfortunately failed to score.
On the 30th of last month, Oh Hyun-gyu played for 10 minutes as a substitute in the away game against Dundee United in the regular league. 슬롯사이트
He is showing a smooth adaptation, but he still has a long way to go to become a starter.
Celtic, where Oh Hyun-kyu is active, has six Japanese teammates, and the strikers are particularly active.
Against Livingston, Celtic launched a starting three-top lined up with Daizen Maeda, Kyogo Furuhashi and Jota. Two Japanese strikers were responsible for Celtic’s front line. Hadate Leo was in the midfield.
In the 29th minute of the first half, Hatate showed off his presence by posting an assist to help Greg Taylor’s opening goal. Then, in the 33rd minute, Maeda scored an additional goal. It was luck that the ball kicked by the opponent’s defense hit the head and went in, but Maeda’s aggressiveness shined.
In the 2nd minute of added time in the first half, Furuhashi scored a key goal. After passing the opposing defender with a dribble, he split the net with an accurate shot.
With the goal that day, Furuhashi recorded his 18th goal of the season and firmly kept the league’s leading scorer. It is two goals behind second place Lawrence Shanklund (16 goals, Hurt).
It is not easy to push out Furuhashi, a direct competitor to Oh Hyeon-gyu. Oh Hyun-kyu stepped on the ground in place of Furuhashi in both games. He seems to be in a backup role for the time being.
