Director Lee Min-seong formed a four-back with Anton, Jo Yu-min, Kim Min-deok, and Oh Jae-seok. The defensive line was stronger than expected. After winning the opening game, Daejeon tried to carry this momentum into the away game.
However, he allowed a run earlier than expected. In the 7th minute of the first half, Lee Myung-joo received the ball that Lee Chang-geun uneasyly cleared and scored with a non-stop shot. Daejeon quickly scored an equalizer. In the 19th minute of the first half, Thiago diligently moved inside the box to turn the game around.
After that, the two teams continued their tight flow. The player who shined from here was Anton. Anton, who was in charge of the left fullback in the four-back, blocked Incheon’s attack with brisk movements. He moved one step ahead of the opposing strikers and kicked the ball away.
In the 3rd minute of the second half, when Lee Myung-joo’s decisive shot came out, Anton, who was in front of the goal, cleared it and prevented the goal from being conceded. Anton is a freshman, but he showed himself commanding his players on the defensive line. He has already fully adapted to the war.
Anton, a native of the Azerbaijani national team, made his professional debut in 2016 in Azerbaijan 1st division Nevci and in 2021 played for Polish 1st division Visla Plok. He is a player with diverse experiences, having played for the national team and the Europa League.
After joining Daejeon, Anton said, “As I joined the team late, I will try to melt into the team more quickly through active communication with my teammates. I heard that this season is a very important year for Daejeon, as we promoted to the first division after 8 years last year. We will do our best to help our team move toward higher goals and visions.”
Daejeon, which added Anton, calmly blocked Incheon’s attack in this match. Although no victory was achieved, Anton’s defense was notable. Attention is focusing on what Anton, who has become the new core of the defense in just two games, will show this season.
