Hong Hyun-seok helped Europe’s ‘shortest time hat-trick’… The team advances to the UECL quarterfinals
Hong Hyun-seok, a Belgian European, joined a new page of history on the stage of the European competition.
Gent won 4-1 in the 2022/23 season UEFA 메이저사이트 (European Football Federation) Europa Conference League Round of 16 second leg match against Basaksehir held at Basaksehir Fatih Terim in Istanbul on the 16th (Korean time).
Gent advanced to the quarterfinals with a 5-2 win over the first and second games.
Hong Hyun-seok started as a second-line attacking midfielder that day. From the beginning of the game, he played the role of the starting point of the attack change, such as a wide field of view and an accurate long pass, and immediately contributed to the team’s first goal.
Hyeon-Seok Hong, who received the ball inside the box in the 30th minute of the first half, passed the ball to Gift Orban on the left, and Orban calmly scored a left-footed shot to lead 1-0. It was recorded with the help of Hong Hyun-seok.
Since then, Gift has written a new history. A minute later, Gift exchanged passes with Hong Hyun-seok, and when Hong Hyun-seok’s pass was cut off by a tackle by the opponent’s defense, Gift won a loose ball and succeeded in a mid-range shot from a long distance.
Three minutes later, Gift’s talent shone again. Gift received a pass from a teammate inside the box and tried to shoot, but was blocked by a defensive block and shot the rebound ball again to complete the hat trick.
