They didn’t win the match, but Hafael showed what he can do.
Chungnam Asan drew 3-3 with Jeonnam Dragons in the 20th round of the Hana OneQ K League 2 2023 at Yi Sunshin Sports Complex at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Chungnam Asan remained in 10th place.
Hapael, who joined Chungnam Asan through the summer transfer market along with Afonso, made his debut. The Brazilian-born striker is known for his all-weather ability to utilize both feet and his high activity level. Hapael came on as a substitute in the 16th minute of the second half after Kang Min-kyu and Kim Seung-ho had taken the lead. He immediately provided an assist. He drove down the left flank and sent a pass to the center, where Duarte finished to make it 3-0.
After his assist, Hafael did a Dragon Ball fusion ceremony with Duarte. Last season, Yoo Kang-hyun and Kim Hye-sung made a splash with this move, but Hafael and Duarte teamed up again. Afterward, Hafael was impressive in terms of connection and penetration, and his defense was also good. Afonso also had a great presence and it was fun to watch the two outsiders.
The game was tied at 3-3. After taking a 3-0 lead, Chungnam Asan conceded a goal to Noh Gun-woo in the 42nd minute and another to Valdivia in the 45th minute to make it 3-3. Although the result was heartbreaking, Afonza and Hafael made us look forward to their future performances.
“I don’t know what to say,” said Hafael in the Mix Zone. It was a good game, but to score three goals and concede three is very disappointing,” he said.
“I’ve known Duarte for four years,” he said, “and I remember when he scored. “I remember when I scored the goal, he was alone and I gave him a pass. The ceremony was spontaneous. There was no preparation,” he said.
The presence of Duarte and Afonso must have helped Hafa to settle in. “Duarte gives me a lot of information. He gave me detailed information on how to train and what the Korean culture is like, so I adapted quickly. He told me about the Korean senior and junior culture. He also told me that there are a lot of Brazilian players in Korea. I tried to adapt to the Korean culture. I know how to say ‘thank you’ in Korean. I also learned to swear, but I can’t say it,” he said.바카라사이트
“I showed my style of play in today’s game. I will definitely try to score goals in the next game. My goal for the season is to get promoted,” he added, concluding his Mixzone interview.
