‘Stop Messi, Ceremony with Ronaldo’… Jang Hyun-soo, the scene stealer of Meho Daejeon
Former national team defender Jang Hyeon-soo (Al-Hilal) took himself as a scene stealer in what might be the last ‘Meho Daejeon’.
On the 20th (Korean time), Jang Hyun-soo participated in the Riyadh Season Cup with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) held at the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia as a member of the Al-Hilal-Al-Nasr joint team.
Jang Hyun-soo, who has been active as Al-Hilal’s flagship center back since 2019, played full-time for 90 minutes and faced the world’s strongest attacking trio, Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbafe, and Neymar.
Although the combined team lost 4-5 with five goals to Messi, Mbappe, Sergio Ramos and Marquinhos, Jang Hyun-soo was highlighted by scoring an equalizer in the 11th minute of the second half to balance the game.
Jang Hyeon-soo overcame Marksman Ramos and turned a corner kick from Petty Martinez into a sensational header at the near post. Ramos pushed with both hands from behind, but he didn’t lose his balance.
Jang Hyun-soo ran to Martinez, who made an assist right after the goal, and shared the joy. Immediately, Cristiano Ronaldo, the ‘united team captain’, ran and held a ceremony together. A ‘two-shot’ was also taken of Jang Hyun-soo and Ronaldo standing side by side.
This day’s match attracted the attention of soccer fans around the world in that it was the 37th and virtually last ‘Meho War’ between Messi and Ronaldo. Messi’s first win through the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and Ronaldo’s every move that moved to the Asian stage drew attention.
Ronaldo and Messi exchanged warm hugs and chats before the game. Ronaldo scored two goals, including a penalty, and was voted man of the match. However, the championship cup was heard by Paris Saint-Germain led by Messi. Jang Hyun-soo was also present at this historic site. 카지노
