Historic Nottingham is back in the Premier League after 23 years

Date:

Historic Nottingham Forest, founded in 1865, have now achieved promotion to the Premier League after a 23-year absence by beating Huddersfield by Valencian coach Carlos Corberán 0-1 in the playoff final at Wembley.

Levi Colwill’s own goal in the 43rd minute decided what was considered the best game in the world, as at stake was the 170 million pounds (200 million euros) that the winner, in this case, Nottingham, would pocket at least over the next three seasons to get into the Premier.

});

The ‘tricky trees’, as Forest is known, were the only team to win more European Cups (two, in 1979 and 1980) than the leagues (one in 1978), but since relegation in 1999 they no longer played in the Premier.

Self -determination decides

Now, with the help of coach Steve Cooper, he finally got it thanks to Colwill’s own goal, which deflected, in opposition to Ryan Yates, a cross from James Garner two minutes before the break. The goal justified Nottingham’s greater dominance in the first half against a Huddersfield retreat waiting for an opportunity to continue the counterattack.

In the second half, the ‘terriers’, with a score against them, expanded, gained an attacking presence and openly sought goal with the contribution of Gonzalo Ávila ‘Pipa’, a right back trained at the Spanish youth academy.

Controversy over Jonathan Moss’s farewell

Huddersfield squeezed the end of the game and in the 71st minute there was a very controversial move as Harry Toffolo fell in place when Colback but blocked Jonathan Moss, on his dismissal from refereeing at the age of 51, considered in the approval of the VAR that simulated the collapse.

x.setAttribute(“charset”, “utf-8”);
$(“.twitter-tweet”).closest( “span” ).append(x);
});

Finally, Huddersfield, who are looking to return to the Premier League after being relegated in 2019, are missing the ‘blow’ against Nottingham who have defended themselves and maintained their advantage. A historic return to the elite of English football with Fulham and Bournemouth, who directly won the first two places of the promotion without having to go to the playoffs.
