In the second round of the semi-final of the Chinese Super League Championship, Guoan lost to Evergrande one to three. As the two teams played against each other in the first round, Guoan missed the Super Finals and will compete with SIPG for the third place. Although once again lost to the old rival Evergrande, Guoan has also gained. Especially the controversial goalkeeper Hou Sen, proved himself through this battle of Tianwangshan!
With the opening of the new season in the Super League, Guoan coach Renesio has been controversial. One of them is that he abandoned last season's main goalkeeper Zou Dehai to force Hou Sen. In the eyes of many Guoan fans, the ability of Hou Sen, who has been the second goal for Yang Zhi all the year round, is not as good as Zou Dehai, who has repeatedly devoted himself last season. Taking a step back, Guo Quanbo should be used even if Zou Dehai is not needed, so that the U23 spot can be saved and Alan can be played in the frontcourt. Compared to U23 teenager Zhang Yuning, Alan, who has won the Europa League Golden Boots, is obviously more capable!
However, Genesio was more willing to give Hou Sen a chance to go to Guo Quanbo when he needed a change. As for Zou Dehai completely reduced to a regular on the bench, he only had the opportunity to play in the previous cup. Reminiscent of Zou Dehai as the main goalkeeper in Schmidt's period, Genesio's behavior has also been misinterpreted as an emperor and courtier.
Facing the Evergrande attack group led by Fernando, Paulinho, and Talisca, Hossen resisted variously in the whole game. Although Guoan eventually scored three goals by Evergrande, no fans would complain about Hou Sen. He really tried his best because of his repeated contributions. Whenever another goalkeeper is changed, Guoan will be beaten directly by Evergrande. Therefore, the semi-final of the Super League has become a blessing in disguise as Hosson's battle for the name.
Think about it carefully, it is normal for Genesio to reuse Houssen. Although not good at attacking, but Hou Sen's goal line technique is the best among Guoan's three goalkeepers. In addition, the technology at the foot is quite reasonable, which fits the requirements of Guoan's transmission and control tactics. In addition, Hou Sen has the best physical conditions such as height and wingspan. In the impression, the media once commented that he has the physical fitness to become a top goalkeeper. It's just that Hou Sen has always been a buddhist, so Guoan fans mistakenly thought he was a second-class level.
Through this peak duel with Evergrande, Guoan fans finally knew how powerful Hou Sen was. Of course, it is estimated that everyone would prefer not to know how fierce Dahou is, because it is not a good thing for a goalkeeper to perform well, which shows that Guoan's defense is in trouble!
