“Let’s risk our lives this year as well.”
Martha (28, Daejeon Hana Citizen), who risked her life to be promoted in 2021, now risks her life in K-League 1.
Daejeon Hana Citizen won 3-2 victory over FC Seoul in the 5th round of the Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium at 7:00 pm on the 1st. 토토사이트
With this, the promoted team Daejeon, which went undefeated in 5 games, jumped to 2nd place with 3 wins, 2 draws and 11 points. This victory was all the more meaningful as it was a victory against Seoul after 6742 days in the league. Daejeon defeated Seoul in the league for the first time since October 16, 2004, breaking an eight-game losing streak.
The return of Martha ended the game. Having suffered from poor physical condition this season, he played his first game of the season as a substitute. In the 13th minute of the second half, when the score was tight 2-2, coach Lee Min-seong pulled out a Martha card, excluding Bae Jun-ho.
Martha reciprocated 100% for director Lee Min-seong’s trust. In the 43rd minute of the second half, he shook the net by putting his foot on a cross raised by Kim In-kyun, who perfectly broke through the left side. It was his Martha’s K-League 1 debut goal.
Martha, who emerged as a hero even before returning, said in a broadcast interview after the match, “I haven’t been feeling very well for the past two weeks because of a cold.
I did not forget to praise Kim In-kyun for the perfect assist. Martha expressed her gratitude, saying, “Kim In-kyun is a great player. He runs really fast. He was confident that the ball would come to me.”
Then, when asked about his goals for this season, Martha replied, “Personally, my goal is to continue playing in good health. I really want to thank the fans today.”
Finally, Martha concluded the interview by saying in Korean, “Let’s risk our lives again this year.” In 2021, Martha’s determination to “promote, let’s risk that life” did not change even on the stage of his dream K League 1.
