Liverpool’s ‘world class’ defender Andy Robertson (29) gave a tongue-in-cheek look at Kaoru Mitoma (26, Brighton).
Brighton won 2-1 against Liverpool in the 4th round of the FA Cup in the 2022/23 season held at the American Express Community Stadium on the 29th (Korean time).
Brighton gave Liverpool the lead in the 30th minute of the first half, but Takri Lampty’s mid-range shot was hit by a Lewis dunk and luckily went into the goal to equalize.
With the tight 1-1 balance continuing in the second half, it was Mitoma who decided the game.
In the second half of extra time, in the situation of a Brighton free kick, Mitoma received a cross and shook Liverpool’s net with a shot aimed precisely over the head of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker.
Thanks to Mitoma’s come-from-behind goal, Brighton defeated Premier League powerhouse Liverpool and succeeded in advancing to the next round of the FA Cup.
On this day, Mitoma not only scored a goal, but also made the Liverpool defense struggle with his excellent dribbling technique.
After the match, Liverpool defender Robertson praised Martoma in an interview with the ‘Daily Express’, saying, “Martoma has been really good in our half.”
He also said, “It was fortunate that I wasn’t in charge of Mitoma’s role,” and spoke out about Mitoma’s skills. 메이저놀이터
Robertson is recognized as one of the best full-backs in the world beyond the Premier League.
Robertson, who is evaluated as an impeccable defender in both offense and defense, was selected as the PFA (Professional Football Players Association) Team of the Year twice.
Mitoma, whose debut season in the Premier League this season is the first to enter the big leagues, is receiving great attention as he performs brilliantly in every game.
Mitoma, who showed flexible and explosive dribbling every time he appeared, is attracting public attention by recording 4 goals and 1 assist in the last 7 games.
