Lee Dong-gook marked the only conquest of the match between Jeonbuk Motors and Suwon Bluewings, at the start of the South Korean K-League, a contest delayed by the expansion of the coronavirus. But, the annotation has had other nuances, among them, the celebration of the players in the days of the Covid-19.
The goal scorer entered the field in the 61st minute and just before the final whistle, he put a header on the first post to beat goalkeeper Dong-Geon No. Right away, the striker prepared to celebrate the goal, but with many precautions.
Lee Dong-gook, in principle, celebrated alone after leaving his teammates. However, the men of Jeonbuk Motors appeared on the scene to congratulate the hero of the day. The player himself prevented everyone present from hugging.
Then, as the clip uploaded to YouTube shows, the footballers of the Korean cast – respecting the social distancing – made a sign in front of the broadcast cameras.
Then they all went to the middle of the field and on the way there were minimal contacts, such as the collision between the forearms, although the latter is not recommended by the federation.
Jeonbuk Motors kept all three points at the Jeonju World Cup Stadium, which aired without spectators by order of the local authorities.
While Lee Dong-gook has shown that he is still relevant in football. The 41-year-old forward, with brief experiences at Werder Bremen in Germany and Middlesbrough in England, helped his team near the end of the engagement in the local championship.
