On the 24th, coach Choi met with reporters ahead of the 2023 Korea Football Association (FA) Cup Round of 16 away match against Gimpo FC of the K-League 2 (Part 2) held at Gimpo Salter Soccer Field in Gyeonggi-do, and mentioned Lee Seung-won and was satisfied, “I even scored and did a good job.” did it

Lee Seung-won was responsible for the opening goal in the U-20 World Cup group stage match against France in Mendoza, Argentina the day before, and assisted Lee Yeong-jun (Kim Cheon)’s final goal.

Midfielder Lee Seung-won, who became the team’s captain, played a big role, and Kim Eun-joong wrote a surprise victory by defeating ‘championship candidates’ France 2-1 in the first game. Director Choi, who watched the match, said, “In fact, the first game is the most difficult. The opponent was France again,” he said. “It felt really good. Overall, we were organized, and coach Kim Eun-joong seemed to have a good strategy.”

Lee Seung-won signed a contract with the team while attending Dankook University at the end of last year and became a pro, and has been playing in 3 games and recording 1 assist in the K4 League (4th division) where Gangwon FC Team B is playing. However, Lee Seung-won has yet to step on the ground in the first division.

Just as striker Yang Hyeon-joon, who has established himself as the team’s signboard, showed off his sparkling talent while playing in the 4th division in the 2021 season and came up to the 1st division, Lee Seung-won’s ability to grow and return on the world stage will be of great help to Gangwon.

Gangwon, which finished 6th thanks to the performances of Yang Hyeon-jun and Kim Dae-won last season, is struggling at the beginning of this season.

With 2 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses, they are in 11th place after the lowest-ranked Suwon Samsung (2 wins, 2 draws, 10 losses).

In particular, if Lee Seung-won continues to show a sharp appearance like the France match because he is suffering from ’emptiness’, it is worth looking forward to from Gangwon’s point of view.

Gangwon only scored 7 goals in 14 games this season.
