If Son Heung-min (Tottenham) has a reputation for kicking in the English Premier League, Jinhyun Lee (26) of Daejeon Hana Citizen is famous for his left-footed kicking in the professional soccer K League 1.
Lee Jin-hyun scored the opening goal with a sharp left-footed shot against Ulsan Hyundai in the Hana 1 Q K League 1 2023 Round 7 home game held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 16th.
In the 9th minute of the first half when the score was 0-0, Lee Jin-hyun, who received a pass from Lee Hyun-sik inside the Ulsan penalty box, fired a left-footed shot without delay. The ball, which drew an exquisite trajectory, was stuck in the corner of the goal, out of reach of Ulsan goalkeeper Cho Hyeon-woo.
In addition to goals, Lee Jin-hyeon was active, recording the highest rank in the team in the number of cross attempts (8 times), dribble breakthrough (2 times), and passes to the attacking camp (15 times). In the game against Ulsan, Lee Jin-hyung received a rating of 8.9, the highest among both teams, from Bpro Eleven, the official K-League additional data provider.
This is not the first time Lee Jin-hyun has surprised an opponent with his left foot.
Lee Jin-hyun attempted a kick with his left foot from the right side of the penalty box in the 16th minute of the second half when the match was 0-0 against Suwon Samsung at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 19th of last month. The ball curved like a bow and was sucked into the Suwon goal.
This goal was selected as the K-League Goal of the Month for February-March and was evaluated as the best among all goals scored in the February-March K-League.
Lee Jin-hyun scored 2 goals and 4 assists in 7 games this season, putting Daejeon, a promoted team, in 3rd place among 12 teams in the league.
