Luis ‘Luganji’ Garcia, the handsome and beautifully played striker, has predicted a Liverpool victory in the upcoming Merseyside derby.
Garcia, a Liverpool ambassador, met with Korean fans at the SC First Bank VIP Match Viewing Party with Liverpool Legends at Lotte Cinema in Lotte World Tower, Jamsil, at 7 p.m. on the 21st.
The event was organized by SC First Bank, whose parent company is Standard Chartered (SC) Group, which has been the official sponsor of Liverpool since 2010, for Korean soccer fans.
The day’s events included trivia, lucky draws, legendary autograph sessions and photo opportunities for attendees. As a pre-event, a photo wall and exhibition will be set up in the lobby of the movie theater, where fans can freely view and take photos of Liverpool players and jerseys. There will also be a darts event, beer booth, and other fun activities for all participants.토스카지노
Liverpool legend Garcia was also in attendance. Garcia, who has traveled to Korea several times in the past representing the Reds, remembered “Korean barbecue” as his first memory of Korea. “I’m going to try different dishes this time,” he said, adding, “The name is a bit difficult to pronounce.”
Garcia watches the upcoming Merseyside derby with Korean fans. Liverpool and Everton are two of the most famous rivals in the Premier League.
Still, Garcia has fond memories. He scored a goal against Everton in the 2004-2005 season when he joined Liverpool. “That’s right. I scored in my first derby at Liverpool. Fernando Morientes had a long-range shot that hit the crossbar. I had a second chance to score and I got my head to the ball before the keeper,” he explained.
The following year, he had another strong showing, scoring with an exquisite chip against Everton, but Garcia remembers the Merseyside encounter as one that took the wind out of his sails. “The Merseyside derby is very special. “Personally, I don’t like to play against Everton because they’re very difficult opponents,” he says, adding, “The Everton game was a lot of tackling, very strong, but we went into it thinking we could win.
With both teams sharing a hometown in Liverpool, Merseyside, England, the matchup is known as the Merseyside Derby. Although their stadiums are only a five-minute drive away, the emotional connection runs deep.
“It was always special and nice to have such a big rivalry in the same city,” says Garcia. The fans were very respectful of each other, you didn’t see them fighting a lot,” he says. “I could walk down the streets of Liverpool after beating Everton and not have a problem. The most important thing was that they respected each other.”
Even now, Garcia’s heart is with Liverpool. His prediction ahead of the clash was a 3-1 Liverpool win.
Ahead of the Merseyside derby, Liverpool will start with Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ibrahima Konate, Virgil van Dijk, Constantinos Chimikas, Alexis Sanchez, Ryan Hrabenbergh, Dominik Soboslaj, Luis Dias, Mohamed Salah, and Georginio Wijnaldum.
