"I'm happy to score but disappointed we couldn't win" - Daegu FC's Edgar Bruno

Edgar Bruno bagged a first league brace in nearly two years as Daegu FC drew 2-2 at home to Incheon United. But the Brazilian star sees the result as two points dropped following a late, late Hong Si-hoo equaliser ensured the spoils were shared. K League United's Muyeol Jung spoke with Edgar afterwards.

A screamer from Incheon's Shin Jin-ho opened the scoring just after the half-hour mark but Daegu saw the contest swing in their favour thanks to a brace from veteran striker Edgar Bruno in a five-minute spell little over five minutes into the second period.

The first was a back-post header from a teasing corner in from the left by Cesinha, while the second was glanced in from the edge of the six-yard box with the Brazilian getting on the end of an inch-perfect Hwang Jae-won cross.

The headed brace takes Edgar to five goals for the campaign so far, level with Go Jae-hyeon as the Sky Blues' top scorer. All five have been headers and no player in K League has been able to match that feat.

But Incheon's Hong Si-woo salvaged a draw for Jo Sung-hwan's men in the 92nd minute, turning home a back-heeled pass from Kim Do-hyuk in the penalty area. 

It was a productive evening for Edgar in particular, though, who also teed up a teammate to shoot on three occasions and extended his lead at the top of the table for headed shots - now on 20 with An Byong-jun of Suwon Bluewings his nearest competitor with 12. 

K League United caught up with Edgar in the mixed zone afterwards.

Q: Congratulations on scoring twice today. Do you remember when you scored a brace in K League? 

A: "It's a long time, a long time." 

Q: Yeah, it's been 567 days since the last time you scored a brace. In a 2-1 win over Suwon FC in 2021, how special is this to you after spending a nearly year recovering from injury?

A: "Yeah, I'm happy to score two goals, but disappointed because we couldn't win, because we lost two points at home. And this is, it's terrible but 'Okay, let's head up again and think to next game."

Q: And, obviously, of course, you came back from injury recently. How's your injury at the moment and how worried should it be about your fitness?

A: "No, it's okay. I just felt a little bit of discomfort in my abductor, but now I'm okay and step by step I'm getting fit again and I hope to play next game and score again. We play at home again and we must win. Cause like I said, we lost two, two points today."
