“I thought you could score it as long as you kicked it into the goal.”

Lee Young-jae, who saved Suwon FC of the K-League 1 professional soccer league from direct relegation with a stunning free kick goal, cited confident shooting as the secret to the tying goal.

Suwon FC drew 1-1 with Jeju United in the final match of the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 Final B held at Suwon Stadium in Gyeonggi Province on the 2nd.

Suwon FC, who had been dragged after giving up the first goal to Kim Geon-woong in the 5th minute of the first half, tied the game with Lee Young-jae’s free kick in the 5th minute of the second half.

At the same time, Gangwon FC and Suwon Samsung drew 0-0 at Suwon World Cup Stadium.

It was a golden goal that saved Suwon FC, who were at risk of automatic relegation from K League 2 if they lost.

In an interview after the game, Lee Young-jae breathed a sigh of relief, saying, “I’m happy to have advanced to the relegation playoffs (PO). I think I got the result I wanted thanks to the support of many fans.”

Regarding the free kick equalizing goal situation, Lee Young-jae said, “I tried to block the goalkeeper’s view as much as possible,” and “I thought Jeju goalkeeper Kim Dong-jun would feel burdened if Yoon Bit-garam and I were standing together. I also advised him that if Yoon Bit-garam just kicked the kick into the goal, it would go in.” I looked back.

He continued, “The free kick position was good, and the players stood up well against the wall,” and “I think the confidence that we could score if we just kicked it into the goal led to a goal.”

Lee Young-jae, who is also the captain of Suwon FC, said that the players felt a sense of crisis over relegation ahead of the final match.

Youngjae Lee explained, “Until the last game against Gangwon, there was less awareness of the crisis, and I think there was a lack of urgency compared to Gangwon,” adding, “Before today’s game, we emphasized the sense of crisis and urgency.”

Now, Suwon FC will play a two-game promotion/relegation PO match against Busan I’Park, who took second place in K League 2, on the 6th and 9th.

Youngjae Lee said, “It is natural to be desperate while preparing for PO,” and added, “This should be an opportunity to prove why we are a first division team. If we believe in each other with the mindset of unconditionally surviving, there will be good results.” Chopped.

Lee Young-jae, who returned to Suwon FC after being discharged from Gimcheon Sangmu last June, said, “Busan, whom I played against in K League 2, is a team with good organization and good build-up,” and added, “Suwon FC has very good offense, so the defensive part is good.” “If we prepare with more care, we will be able to beat Busan,” he predicted.

He then expressed confidence, saying, “Suwon FC’s current strength is much better than that of Gimcheon. We will be able to play a different and better game than when we played in Gimcheon.” 19가이드03
