On the other hand, Plymouth Argyle (51 points), who defeated Hull City 1-0 on this day, managed to remain in the championship, finishing in 21st place, ahead of Birmingham by 1 point.

Baek Seung-ho, who started as an attacking midfielder, scored his Birmingham debut goal and the game-winning goal of the day with a header in the 10th minute of the second half, then retired as a substitute in the 23rd minute of the second half and finished his performance in the final game of the regular season.

Baek Seung-ho, who left K-League 1 Jeonbuk Hyundai last January and played in Europe for the first time in three years with Birmingham, finished the season by scoring only one goal in 18 league games.

In order to remain in the championship, Birmingham had to win the game that day and then watch the results of other teams.

Birmingham gave Norwich a strong defensive push, but ended the first half without scoring.

Birmingham finally succeeded in scoring in the 10th minute of the second half, and the main character was Baek Seung-ho.

When Kathy Anderson’s right-footed shot from near the left side of the penalty area bounced off a defender, Baek Seung-ho, who was in front of the goal area, headed the ball into the right corner of the goal.

It was the debut goal of Baek Seung-ho, who joined Birmingham last January, and the game-winning goal of the day.

At the same time, 21st-ranked Plymouth also scored first against Hull City, so Birmingham fans continued their sad cheers, hoping for Hull City’s equalizer.

However, Plymouth won 1-0 first, and Birmingham’s chances of remaining in the championship completely disappeared.

After finishing extra time in the second half, Birmingham won 1-0 over Norwich City, but had to reflect on the disappointment of being relegated to the third division.

Following Birmingham’s fall into the third division, Baek Seung-ho is also expected to find a new team.
