Leicester City takes the lead in’Keeping Distance’ "You have to do your best to continue playing football."

Leicester City, the’Emerging Powerhouse’ of the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL), took the lead in the’Distance Ceremony’. The EPL Secretariat strengthened the quarantine regulations from the beginning of the migration according to the government policy. It was added to refrain from unnecessary contact during the game. Accordingly, the goal ceremony, which embraces and shares joy with colleagues, was officially banned. The players didn’t care. When a goal was scored, the ceremony was held as before, and controversy continued over this. Criticism arose as to why only elite soccer players should be allowed’exceptions’ because everyone is distant and suffers from being unable to go to work. Many of the managers and players confronted that it was impossible in the first place to control the erupting’emotion’. The government pushed ahead, saying that quarantine rules should be observed on the ground. Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston pointed out that “the soccer association and other related organizations should force players to strictly follow the rules.” After the reinforced rules were implemented, the goal ceremony continued even in the first weekend game. But only one team, Leicester City, was an exception. Leicester won 2-0 in the match against Southampton held at the home of King Power Stadium on the 17th (Korean time). At the end of the first half, James Madison scored the first goal with an accurate shot from the square, and in the extra time of the second half, Harvey Barnes scored one-on-one with the goalkeeper. After scoring, Madison calmed the oncoming players and held a hand in hand to shake hands. Barnes’ goal ceremony was also very simple. He touched his toes with Tilemans, who helped. After the match, Madison said, “Before the match, coach Brandon Rogers emphasized that if you want to continue playing football, you have to do your duty and do a’distance ceremony’.” “A lot of people are getting through this tough time thanks to football,” he said. “Any team had to start. We made a new attempt with optimism and a good heart.”
