Suwon FC striker Lee Seung-woo (25), who said, “I want to show not only goals but also great plays,” transformed into a central midfielder and caught both rabbits.
Lee Seung-woo started the K-League 1 Round 25 against Suwon Samsung held at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 5th and scored 1 goal in 88 minutes, leading the team to a 2-0 victory.
What caught my attention that day was Lee Seung-woo’s location. Lee Seung-woo’s position is usually a shadow striker right below the forward striker. However, he played as a central midfielder with Yoon Bit-garam and Kim Seon-min that day. Due to his relatively small physique, he was expected to be inferior in physical fights, but Lee Seung-woo overcame it with his excellent skills. In particular, he spearheaded Suwon FC’s attack with his dribbling from the third line with a lot of space. The pass following the dribble threatened Suwon Samsung’s defense several times. Here, his reckless style of play showed great power in midfield as well.스포츠토토
First, Lee Seung-woo was involved in both of the team’s goals in the first half. At the time of the opening goal, in a corner kick situation, he cleverly blocked the opponent’s path and created an open chance for Lars. Right before the end of the first half, he shook the net with a quick shot in half a beat followed by a wonderful dribble himself.
‘Midfielder’ Lee Seung-woo’s real performance on this day was in the second half. In particular, the through pass delivered to Lars and Lee Kwang-hyuk after the dribble was the highlight of the day. Although both shots missed the side of the goal, Lee Seung-woo’s dribble → through pass formula was an attack that the Suwon Samsung defense could not block.
Suwon FC broke a winless streak (2 draws, 6 losses) in 8 games including 3 consecutive losses thanks to Lee Seung-woo’s great performance. Suwon FC kept 10th place (6 wins, 5 draws, 14 losses, 23 points), but widened the gap with 11th place Suwon Samsung to 5 points and started to escape from the bottom.
Lee Seung-woo, who was selected as the Distinguished Player of the day, said in an interview with the broadcaster after the game, “I tried to balance the offense and defense.” I want to help the team in any position. I will do as the director tells me,” he said with a bright expression.
Lee Seung-woo, who responded to an independent interview ahead of a friendly match in the Team K-League last week, promised the fans, “I want to show not only goals but also great plays.” After a splendid debut season with 14 goals last year, Lee Seung-woo looks forward to new growth. ‘Midfielder’ Lee Seung-woo is expected to be a great help to Suwon FC, which is aiming for a rebound in August.
