Fantastic goal stripped of 2 defenders
Suwon FC won 2-0 thanks to Lars’ opening goal and Lee Seung-woo’s key goal in the first half of the ‘Hanawon Q K League 1 2023’ round 25 expedition held at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 5th. It was a victory that meant more than 3 points. Suwon FC, who won all three Suwon derbies this season, proved that they are the true owners of Suwon, the ‘soccer capital’. Not only honor, but also practical benefits. After ending the recent 8 match winless streak (2 draws and 6 losses), they won in as many as two months, providing an opportunity for a rebound. Suwon FC has not won since the match against Suwon on June 3rd. At that time, Suwon was the team that broke the losing streak and won, but this time, they succeeded in escaping the long losing streak by sacrificing Suwon.
Before the game, coach Kim Do-gyun said, “Use Las’ strengths well and look forward to Lee Seung-woo’s personal ability,” but Kim’s wish came true. Lars’ header opening goal using height broke out, and Lee Seung-woo’s sensuous wedge goal secured victory. In the 27th minute of the first half, Lars shook the net with a header from a corner kick from the right wing by Bitgaram Yun. It was like a ‘ruler of the air’. Lars, who recently went through transfer rumors and attitude controversy, let go of his troubles with this goal. Lars approached the Suwon FC cheering seat and held a delightful ceremony, shaking his pelvis and clapping his hands, and the fans responded with even louder cheers.
Lee Seung-woo then scored an additional goal with his individual skills. Lee Seung-woo, who caught the ball from behind the penalty box in the first half extra time, tricked two opponents with a painting and shook the net with a right-footed shot. It was the 4th goal in the league, 3 weeks after the match against FC Seoul on July 12th. After the game, Lee Seung-woo said at a press conference, “I am happy to win the Suwon derby at an important time. When asked if he had suffered from poor scoring compared to last season, he said, “I was more concerned about the team’s poor performance than goals,” and said, “I will prepare well for the remaining away and home games.”
On this day, manager Kim Do-gyun put Lee Seung-woo in the midfielder position, not a forward or flanking striker. He coordinated the offense and defense in the midfield, not the usual ‘Dak Gong’ from the side and center, and actively participated in the attack whenever the opportunity arose. As time passed, Lee Seung-woo moved freely in the midfield area and harassed the Suwon defenders. After the game, coach Kim Do-kyun said, “Lee Seung-woo has to play with a lot of balls to make good plays.” I thought I would be able to increase my attack points, but I am happy that I finally scored.”
Lee Seung-woo also said, “It’s a position I’m not used to. It’s a position I’m new to, and it was difficult because I haven’t tried it a lot, but given the current situation in our team, it’s not just what I want to do. There’s a role the coach wants, and I’m trying to do well in that part.”
Lee Seung-woo received a warning in the early half of the first half while engaging in a war of nerves with Suwon’s key midfielder, Kazuki. The two got into an argument after a physical fight, and Kazuki pushed Lee Seung-woo’s chest and knocked him over. After that, the situation seemed to come to an end, but Lee Seung-woo approached Kazuki again and responded by pushing Kazuki’s chest, making the atmosphere worse. Then, 2 minutes later, Lee Seung-woo knocked down Kajiki’s thigh with his knee. The referee immediately pulled out a yellow card and Lee Seung-woo strongly protested the decision.
In fact, Lee Seung-woo’s excessive fighting and intentional foul play was a play that could be ‘poison’ rather than ‘benefit’. In particular, being warned unnecessarily from the beginning of the game was a risk factor not only for himself but also for the team. However, Lee Seung-woo made up for his early mistakes with his skills. 안전놀이터 When asked about the situation in which he was warned, Lee Seung-woo said, “Kazuki came to Suwon and is doing well and playing an important role. I tried to defend tightly.”
Lastly, Lee Seung-woo gave sincere advice to juniors participating in the Hangzhou Asian Games. Lee Seung-woo, who won the gold medal at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, said, “At the time, I was young and I didn’t seem to be able to reach as much as my older brothers. It seems that (Son) Heung-min and (Hwang) Eui-jo, who were wild cards, were more desperate. But now, when I look at my juniors, I feel realistic.” He continued, “It would be a lie if the players said there was no pressure. There are many parts to the tight game schedule, physical strength, and eating,” he said. When it’s difficult, we have to come together and overcome it together. That way you can do well.”
