Lee Seung-won (Gangwon), who is active as Kim Eun-joong’s solver at the FIFA U-20 World Cup, stood shoulder to shoulder with Lee Kang-in (Mallorca), who won the ‘Golden Ball’ in the previous tournament.
Lee Seung-won scored a penalty kick goal in the 23rd minute of the first half in the quarter-final match against Italy held at La Plata Stadium in Argentina on the 9th (Korean time) to balance the score 1-1.
Bae Jun-ho (Daejeon) was stepped on by an opponent and fell while turning around after receiving a pass in the penalty box. At first, no foul was declared, but a penalty kick was declared through VAR, and Lee Seung-won stabbed the top corner of the goal with his right foot and shook the net.
As a result, Seung-Won Lee has scored 2 goals and 4 assists in this tournament alone, and has 6 attack points in 6 matches from the group stage to the tournament.

Unlike Lee Kang-in, Lee Seung-won, who is right-footed, is leading the upward trend as a solver for Kim Eun-joong with sophisticated kicking skills comparable to Lee Kang-in.
Lee Seung-won, who scored 1 goal and 1 assist in the first group match against France (2-1 win), took the lead in advancing to the semifinals by contributing assists in the second group match against Honduras, the round of 16 against Ecuador, and the quarterfinals against Nigeria. .
Then, in the semi-final match against Italy, he scored again and recorded his 6th attack point. He continued to play an active role, recording attack points in all matches except for the 3rd match against Gambia in the group stage, which ended 0-0.
In particular, his performance against Nigeria shone. Although he was significantly inferior in the number of shots, 4-22, he acted as a corner kicker in the 5th minute of extra time and helped Choi Seok-hyun (Dankook University)’s winning goal with a sharp right-footed cross.메이저놀이터
Seung-Won Lee’s right foot shone throughout the tournament, to the extent that 6 out of 9 goals scored by Kim Eun-Joong-Ho in 6 matches came from Lee Seung-Won’s toes.
