Hwang Hee-chan was the main character of the come-from-behind goal that decided to advance to the round of 16 after 12 years.

Hwang Hee-chan was unable to play in the previous two games due to injury, but in the first match against Portugal, he literally ran around the ground 'like a bull' and scored a goal.

the 20th minute of the second half, the national team, which must win, took out the Hwang Hee-chan card.

Hwang Hee-chan, who kept the bench in the last two qualifying matches due to a hamstring injury, ran around the ground without hesitation as if to relieve his grudge.

After breaking through the left flank two minutes after being put in, he created a shooting opportunity for Son Heung-min, and caused a pass miss by the Portuguese defense team with intense forward pressure, which was connected with Hwang In-beom's powerful mid-range shot.

Hwang Hee-chan, who was looking for an opportunity every time he counterattacked, finally struck a decisive blow in the 1st minute of extra time in the second half.

In a counterattack situation, when Son Heung-min broke through, he sprinted into the opponent's penalty box, and when Son Heung-min's pass penetrated between the defender's legs, he broke the offside with an exquisite movement and shook the net with a right-footed shot.

Hwang Hee-chan, who scored a come-from-behind goal, cheered while taking off his uniform, and shared a deep embrace with Son Heung-min.

When the final whistle blew and our advance to the round of 16 was confirmed, Hwang Hee-chan danced for joy and roared while wearing a Korean flag.

[Hwang Hee-chan/Soccer team striker: I think I was sure it wasn't offside.

(Son) Heung-min gave me a pass at a very good timing, so I was sure.

I think I'm really happy that it's such a proud moment.]

Hwang Hee-chan, who has been active as a built-in striker at Bentu Lake, was caught up in a hamstring injury ahead of this tournament.

Even after he arrived in Qatar, he devoted himself only to rehabilitation, but it did not improve, and he could not hide his frustrated expression while watching the match between Uruguay and Ghana from the bench.

Hwang Hee-chan, who recovered his condition and stepped on the ground, led the national team to the round of 16 with a devastating final goal, clearing away his troubled heart.
