GK Henderson blocked from participating in the semi-finals ‘because of Man United’?￼
Dean Henderson (26, Nottingham), a loaner who led Nottingham Forest (hereinafter referred to as Nottingham) to the semifinals of the cup competition, cannot participate in the semi-finals without the permission of his original team, Manchester United (hereinafter referred to as Man United).
Nottingham played the 2022-2023 season England Carabao Cup (EFL Cup) quarter-final against Wolverhampton at the City Ground in Nottingham, England at 4:45 am (Korean time) on the 12th, finishing the first and second half 1-1 and winning the penalty shootout (4-3) was achieved. 메이저사이트
Thanks to Henderson’s brilliant save, Nottingham reach the semi-finals and face Manchester United for a ticket to the final.
On this day, Henderson did not allow a run with a super save in the first half. In the 35th minute of the first half, Hwang Hee-chan’s sharp pass was handed over and Jimenez’s shot was blocked. It was a one-on-one crisis, but he hit the ball with amazing reflexes. Four minutes later, Hwang Hee-chan’s shot was also blocked.
After consecutive saves, the BBC praised, “Henderson’s goalkeeper made super saves on Jimenez’s and Hwang Hee-chan’s shots.”
In the penalty shootout, Henderson stood out even more. He blocked Wolverhampton’s 1st and 5th kickers’ shots and led the team’s victory in the penalty shootout.
The joy was short-lived, but there was a possibility that Henderson would not be able to play against Manchester United in the semifinals. According to EFL Cup rules, Henderson cannot play in the semi-final against Manchester United due to loan rules unless his home team (Man United) has given permission.
In other words, Henderson can wear goalkeeper gloves only if Manchester United, the original team in the semifinals, allows him to participate.
British media ‘The Sun’ predicted that “Henderson is the main goalkeeper in Nottingham, so Nottingham will have a blow” and “he is unlikely to advance to the semi-finals.”
