Wrexham AFC, which became a hot topic with Son Heung-min’s ‘click ceremony’, unfortunately missed the confrontation with Tottenham Hotspur.
Wrexham AFC lost 1-3 to Sheffield United in a rematch of the 4th round (round of 32) of the 2022-23 season of the English FA Cup held at Bramall Lane in Sheffield, England on the 8th (Korean time).
Wrexham is a club belonging to the National League (5th division), and aimed for a giant killing against Sheffield (2nd division). In the first confrontation, it seemed to cause a cataclysm by leading 3-2 until extra time in the second half, but conceded a goal in the 5th minute of extra time in the second half and drew 3-3. Thus, a rematch was made.
The rematch was played at Sheffield home, and Wrexham’s gust of wind died down. The balance was 1-1 until the 45th minute of the second half, but this time, the extra time in the second half was a problem. Wrexham knelt down in the 4th and 6th minutes of extra time in the second half, conceding consecutive runs.
As a result, Wrexham’s long-awaited confrontation with Tottenham failed. The winner of Wrexham and Sheffield was destined to meet Tottenham in the round of 16 according to the draw. It was even assigned as a home game.
On the 31st, when the FA Cup round of 16 draw was released, Wrexham posted a photo of the ceremony through the club’s channel 온라인바카라. It was a very interesting picture. The Wrexom players were doing Son Heung-min’s signature ‘click ceremony’. I chose the image in the car hoping to have a confrontation with Tottenham, and this drew a lot of attention from Tottenham fans.
Meanwhile, the FA Cup Round of 16 between Tottenham and Sheffield will be held on March 2nd.
