Among domestic professional soccer players, Lee Chang-min (29, Jeju United) is an indispensable figure when it comes to a resource with the ability to score goals with a mid-range shot.
In the highlights of Lee Chang-min’s goal scenes, many of them are mid-range shots. A thrilling shot that shakes the net from the center of the midfield or outside the left and right corners of the penalty area, far from the goal post, delights the viewer. Lee Chang-min’s talent, which can be digested by both the second line of attack and central midfield, is added to the shooting, so the opponent who blocks him must change the level of pressure.
This year is a special year for Lee Chang-min, who started his professional career at Gyeongnam FC in 2014. He is entering his 10th year and is faced with a choice to fulfill his military service obligations. With 30 goals and 26 assists in 246 K-League games, you can join the 30 (goal)-30 (assistance) club if you want to.
Lee Chang-min, who met on the 7th at the K-League field training media camp held at Barev Hotel in Seogwipo, Jeju-do, said, “I couldn’t show that kind of image (mid-range shooting goal) last year. This year, I will do well until I go to the army and leave.” He expressed his will to try to his heart’s content when a shooting situation arises without paying attention to the coach.
The time of enlistment has not been set, but he will fulfill his military service as a public service member in the K4 League (4th Division) Geoje Citizen Soccer Team. It is a great blessing for him to continue playing football in any way.
Of course, within the team tactics, Chang-min Lee’s long-distance shooting weapon must be used. He said, “I will make the most of my strengths so that I do not deviate 안전놀이터 too much from the football that the coach pursues. If, as coach Nam Ki-il said, he finished second or higher, breaking the Yanggang composition between Ulsan Hyundai and Jeonbuk Hyundai, Chang-min Lee’s mid-range shooting stake would be quite high.
There is another reason to save mid-range shooting. In the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, there were so many cases where mid-range shooting changed the tide. In Korea, Baek Seung-ho (Jeonbuk Hyundai) cut the net with a high-quality left-footed mid-range shot in the match against Brazil in the round of 16, confirming the score of 1-4.
