“It is very important to maintain our speed against a match with many midfielders.”

Jeju United earned valuable 3 points in the away game against Daejeon. The flow diverged in midfield, which Jeju coach Nam Ki-il saw as a place to win.

Jeju defeated Daejeon Hana Citizen 3-0 in the Hana One Q K League 1 2023 away match held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 30th of last month.

Jeju (14 points), which succeeded in winning two league games in a row, jumped to 5th place. In addition, it created a strange situation in which the victory won this season was filled with four consecutive wins this season.

Before the match, Jeju coach Nam cited the midfield as the secret to the blast, saying, “As the current rankings suggest, Daejeon is very well prepared and doing well.” He said, “Daejeon has a lot of midfielders and is fast,” and said that Jeju must maintain its own pace to win.

It was Lee Chang-min who took on the heavy responsibility. Lee Chang-min paired up with Koo Ja-cheol to face the Daejeon midfielder. As expected by coach Nam, Lee Chang-min exerted an influence throughout the field. He cut off the opponent’s attack at the right time and put in a bold forward pass.

Changmin Lee’s presence did not change even when his partner changed. In the 10th minute of the second half, Koo Ja-cheol left due to a hamstring injury. Kim Bong-soo was replaced, but the flow of Jeju continued. In the 33rd minute of the second half, a corner kick set the starting point for Kim Bong-soo’s key goal.

After the game, Lee Chang-min looked back and said, “The coach said that the roles of Ja-cheol and I are important.

According to the model provided to the reporters that day, Jeju had two midfielders and Daejeon had three midfielders. If you look at it simply, you have no choice but to be pushed in the battle of numbers. He said, “There are many situations, but when you get involved in the ball, there are times when you want to come this way.”

In particular, Lee Chang-min’s long pass that left his feet was a threatening attack in Jeju and a crack in Daejeon. In the 19th minute of the first half, Lee Chang-min’s flashing vision and accurate kick were delivered to Seo Jin-soo. Immediately, a one-on-one situation was created with the goalkeeper, but it was blocked by a save. Even in the extra time of the first half, Lee Chang-min’s surprise long pass led to Kim Seung-seop’s goal. In the previous situation, a foul was declared, but it was enough to put a burden on the defense of Daejeon.

Lee Chang-min said, “I analyzed the match, and the defensive line was a little higher than I thought.”

Lee Chang-min, who wore a Jeju uniform in 2016, has already entered the team for 8 years. He is one of the players who stayed for a long time, but he is preparing for a breakup for a while. for military duty. After undergoing a physical examination last week, he will receive an enlistment date soon.

Lee Chang-min said, “I think the enlistment date will come soon,” and said, “The joy of today’s victory is good, but I want to go back to Jeju quickly and win my first home win.” He continued, “The manager also said to present a home victory to the fans as soon as possible after the game.”스포츠토토

It is clear why the Jeju team, including Lee Chang-min, emphasizes home wins. Jeju has not won at home since the match against Pohang Steelers on August 14 last year. It has already won 10 games with 3 draws and 7 losses. They are currently on a three-game losing streak at home. This is why Jeju’s resolution is extraordinary ahead of their two home matches against Pohang and Incheon United.

Lee Chang-min said, “I have a schedule to enlist, but before that, my goal was to win my first home game.” He revealed his wish, saying, “I will give my all and greet you with a smile as much as the opportunity is given.”
