When Sejingya returned, DGB Daegu Bank Park was excited. Regardless of whether he won or lost, Sejingya was still the ‘King of Daegu’ that gave Daegu FC fans something to look forward to.
Daegu, to which Sejingya belongs, was defeated 3-4 in the match against Gwangju in the 7th round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 at DGB Daegu Bank Park located in Daegu at 7 pm on the 16th. Daegu fought hard with Ko Jae-hyeon scoring multiple goals in the 18th and 33rd minutes of the second half, and Keita in the 38th minute of the second half, but Kim Han-gil in the 18th minute, Sandro in the 43rd minute, Huh Yul in the 14th minute, and Ha Seung-woon in the 44th minute. We lost by one goal to Gwangju thanks to .
Came back after three games. In the 4th round Jeonbuk Hyundai match, he scored the key goal to win the team and his first goal of the season, showing his presence, but he injured his hamstring and had to take a break for a while. Cezinha had to watch from outside as the team faltered in the three games he didn’t play. A 0-3 away loss to FC Seoul must have been quite bitter. And it was a situation where they were losing by a large score in the match against Gwangju that day.
Coach Choi Won-kwon could not put off the Cesingya card any longer. At the start of the second half when the score was 0-2, Lee Geun-ho was called in and Sejingya was put in. As soon as Sejingya was put in, his presence was strongly emitted. It is safe to say that the reason Daegu became a completely different team from the first half was Sejingya. In the 23rd minute of the second half, a sharp penetrating pass gave Ko Jae-hyun a decisive chance, and a minute later, a sharp early cross gave Kim Kang-san a chance to score.
In the 33rd minute of the second half, when the score was 1-3, Daegu’s attack centered on Sejingya shone. Cesingya started building up from the outside of the box by using Edgar, who had turned his back on the opponent’s defense. Edgar created a decisive chance by 안전놀이터 giving a three-way pass to Ko Jae-hyun, who was digging into the space on the right side of the box alone, and this led to Daegu’s second goal.
In the 38th minute of the second half, Keita’s goal was also started by Sejingya. Gwangju goalkeeper Kim Kyung-min saved the ball when Edgar took over Sejingya’s cross from outside the box and volleyed it. But right away, Keita shook the net with a clever rush. The three-goal gap was quickly closed.
However, the unfortunate thing is that Daegu could not win even after receiving enough ‘Sejingya buff’ like this. The defense, which showed an uneasy look throughout the game, eventually caught on. The goal given to Ha Seung-woon in the 44th minute of the second half must have been bittersweet for Daegu fans. Still, just confirming that the ‘King of Daegu’ is back in good health was a huge gain. Cesingya, who came back from an injury, was still in good health.
