It is the core of Daegu itself.
The Brazilian duo Cesingya and Edgar are an indispensable resource for Daegu FC. The two, who have been together for a long time in Daegu, threaten the opponent’s goal based on their different strengths. Since he returned after a hiatus, the effect seemed to be maximized.
Daegu lost 3-4 in the 7th round home game against Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 Gwangju FC held at DGB Daegu Bank Park on the 17th. Although they fell into a swamp without a win in three consecutive games without sounding the pitch for victory, there is something comforting.
Got out of goal drought. Daegu failed to score a goal in the two matches immediately before Gwangju, Incheon United (0-0 draw) and FC Seoul (0-3 loss). Daegu’s team color is ‘counterattack after player defense’. After blocking the opponent with defense by lowering the line, they aim for a shot with a counterattack, but in the matches against Incheon and Seoul, they had difficulties developing the attack.
Sejingya’s gap was huge. Cesingya suffered a hamstring injury while preparing for the game against Incheon and was excluded from the list. He didn’t accompany the Incheon match nor the Seoul expedition. After taking a break from Cheonan City FC and the Korea Football Association (FA) Cup last year, he sat on the bench as a substitute member that day. This is the first time he has been on the roster since the Jeonbuk Hyundai War on the 19th of last month.
It was put in at the start of the second half. Daegu finished the first half with a score of 0-3. I tried to turn it around with Sejingya. In addition, Edgar was put in to activate the ‘Sedgar’ combo.
hit Daegu, which had been hesitant due to Gwangju’s offensive, spread its wings in the attack. The counterattack was sharp. Ko Jae-hyun’s comeback goal narrowed the gap to 1-3, and in the 33rd minute of the second half, the second goal came in close pursuit of Gwangju. Cesingya crossed to Edgar, who was back on the defensive, and Edgar passed the pass to Ko Jae-hyeon, who turned to the right and finished it off. It was a scene where Ko Jae-hyeon finished the fantastic play of Sejingya and Edgar.
The starting point for the equalizer was Cesingha and Edgar. Edgar volleyed Cesingya’s cross into the penalty box. Gwangju goalkeeper Kim Kyung-min made a save, but Keita pushed the second ball.
Daegu, in a chaotic atmosphere that made it 3-3 in an instant, dedicated a goal to Ha Seung-woon in the 44th minute of the second half, but it was a game that made them realize how powerful ‘Sedga’ was even once.
After the game,안전놀이터 Daegu coach Choi Won-kwon said, “Sejingya is 50% of his strength. He can drag other players as well as his prowess. He is an indispensable player,” he said, promising, “I will return to Daegu from the next game.”
Sejingya said, “I know what each player is like while working for Daegu. We will talk a lot and give and receive feedback so that we can get good results.”
