For the first time in English football history, the ’98th minute equalizer’ PO overturned the 4 goal difference
In the England League One (third division) promotion playoff, a 4-goal loss in the first game was overturned in the second game. The main character was Sheffield Wednesday.
On the 19th (Korean time), it was the second leg of the 2022-2023 League One promotion playoff semifinals with Sheffield against Peterborough United. The number of teams that can be promoted from League One to the Championship (2nd division) is 3 teams each season. Plymouth Argyle and Ipswich Town, who placed first in the regular league, had confirmed promotion, and the 3rd to 6th places entered the playoffs for one spot.
In the first leg on the 13th, Sheffield was driven to the brink of elimination. This is because Peterborough won 4-0. There has never been a case in the history of the English Football League playoffs where a four-goal difference was overturned in the second leg.
But in the second game, a miracle happened. Returning home, Sheffield chased fiercely by scoring three goals until the beginning of the second half. And in the 8th minute of added time in the second half, Liam Palmer’s dramatic fourth goal came out. The match went into overtime as the total score of the first and second games was equal.
Sheffield’s Lee Gregory scored an own goal in extra time, putting them on the brink of defeat once again. However, in the 7th minute of the second half of extra time, Killum Patterson’s tying goal scored Sheffield again, 5-1 in the second leg and 5-5 in both games.
In the penalty shootout that followed, Peterboro’s number 2 kicker Daniel Butler failed, while the Sheffield kickers succeeded without error, eventually winning a dramatic victory with 5PK3. It was such a dramatic match that even though they had not yet been promoted, home fans stormed onto the ground to celebrate the victory.
Although Sheffield is a story from more than 100 years ago, it is a prestigious family of yesteryear that has won the first division title four times. It competed in the EPL from the 1992-1993 season when the English Premier League (EPL) was launched to the 1999-2000 season. During this period, they also competed in European competitions twice. However, after being demoted to the second division in 2000, it has not been able to return to the first division, and continues to come to the second and third divisions.토스카지노

The two teams that have passed the semifinals will challenge for the last championship promotion opportunity through a single match held at Wembley Stadium on the 29th.
