They even threw in a winning bid to recruit three foreign players from Brazil. Gangwon FC is aiming for a great turnaround in the second half.안전놀이터 Gangwon recruited foreign players Yago Carriello, Vitor Gabriel, and Wellington Junior this month alone. All are Brazilian strikers. As they suffer from attack problems this year, we are looking forward to their performance.
Gangwon will play a home game against FC Seoul in the 23rd round of Hanawon Q K League 1 2023 at 7:30 pm on the 15th at Gangneung Sports Complex. For Gangwon, it is a schedule that must be set in order to change the sluggish atmosphere. This year, Gangwon recorded 2 wins, 9 draws and 11 losses, 15 points, and remains in 11th place in the league. Gangwon’s last win was a home game against Seoul on April 26th. So far, 5 draws and 8 losses, no win in 13 matches.
The biggest problem was attack power. This year, the team scored 13 goals, which was the highest in the league. There were times when we couldn’t score a single goal in five games in May. Amid such sluggish performance, team ace Yang Hyeon-joon was rumored to be transferring to Europe, so reinforcements were needed. Gangwon moved quickly. Yago, Gabriel and Wellington were recruited.
Yago made his debut against Daegu FC on the 11th. He played for Portugal 1st division Portimonense, where Park Ji-soo and Kim Yong-hak played an active part. Gabriel and Wellington are also likely to play against Seoul. Gabriel, a 23-year-old young striker, is a central striker who played for Portugal’s prestigious Braga and Brazil’s prestigious Flamengo. He is 187 cm tall and has a good physique. It is characterized by scoring goals using his strength and skill. ‘Multiplayer’ Wellington, who can play the side and center, stands out for his speed and finish. Wellington also played for Portimonense, scoring 11 goals in 33 starts over the last two years.
Fortunately, even in the harsh reality, Gangwon’s offense is gradually recovering. By appointing coach Yoon Jung-hwan, he changed his mood, and in the match against Suwon FC last month, which was Yoon’s debut match, 16 shots were fired. In the three games in July, they scored only one point, but they scored points against Gwangju FC, which was on the rise, and Daegu FC, which had top-tier power. The number of shots was also similar, so they played an equal game. Gangwon’s flank attack resources are one of the best in the league. If there is only a front-line striker who can put a period, the atmosphere of the attack can be completely different.
It is no exaggeration to say that Gangwon’s performance will change depending on the performance of the ‘Brazilian trio’ Yago, Gabriel, and Wellington.
Meanwhile, Gangwon and Seoul played a fierce match every season. Their overall record is 8 wins, 9 draws and 9 losses, and Gangwon is slightly inferior to them. In the last 10 matches, there were 3 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses. This year, they have a record of 1 win and 1 loss. On April 26th, Gangwon won 3-2, but on May 28th, Seoul won 1-0 and put a counter fire.
