Gold medal senior’ Lee Seung-woo left advice for the national team juniors who are trying to win their third consecutive Asian Games men’s soccer title.Suwon FC, who played round 25 of the 2023 Hana One Q K League 1 at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 5th, defeated Suwon Samsung 2-0. Suwon FC broke the chain of 8 games without a win and kept 10th place in the league (23 points).
Lee Seung-woo made a breakthrough in Suwon FC’s escape from sluggishness. Lee Seung-woo came out as a midfielder and dominated the midfield throughout the game. He led Suwon FC’s attack with elegant dribbling and sharp penetrating passes in a slightly lower position than usual. In the extra time of the first half, he even scored a key goal with a sensuous mid-range shot inserted through the defense.
It was a performance that reminded me of the Asian Games. Lee Seung-woo participated in the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta Palembang and scored 4 goals in 6 games, including the winning goal in the 2nd minute of the first half of the final extension against Japan, contributing to the gold medal in two consecutive tournaments in Korean football.
Currently, the Korean U24 soccer team, led by head coach Hwang Seon-hong, is preparing for a third consecutive Asian Games victory. A large number of young and promising players active at home and abroad have been selected, including Lee Kang-in, who recently joined Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and is receiving a lot of attention, Jung Woo-young, 토토 Hong Hyun-seok, Um Won-sang, Cho Young-wook, Ko Young-jun, Lee Han-beom, and Hwang Jae-won. Wild cards Baek Seung-ho, Park Jin-seop, and Seol Young-woo support them. About a month later, on September 19, starting with the first leg of the group stage against Kuwait, the ‘2022 Hangzhou Asian Games’ schedule will begin.
Lee Seung-woo left some advice to his juniors about a month before the Asian Games. Lee Seung-woo, who attended the press conference for distinguished players after the game, was asked how he overcame the pressure of winning the Asian Games. “At that time, I was too young. ) Hyunwoo hyung and (Kim) Moonhwan hyung eagerly participated in the game. Since I was young, the burden didn’t touch me much. Looking at the players my age, I think I can feel it a little now,” he recalled five years ago.
What Lee Seung-woo emphasized was cooperation. “There will be no pressure. It’s not something you do in Korea, but eating, stadiums, and tight schedules will all bother you. But rather than complaining, we should all come together and overcome difficulties. I think we can do better together.” told
