Earlier, in the first match against Vietnam, Japan struggled quite a bit in the first half and won the game 4-2. Notably, it was thoroughly attacked by Vietnam’s set piece and exposed its weaknesses too easily. However, Japan’s offense was unprecedented.
The two-line combination that led to Nakamura, Minamino and Junya Ito was quite destructive. In addition, Kubo, who played as a substitute in the 40th minute of the second half, showed Ueda one assist in the first minute as soon as he replaced him, showing why he was the ace.
Meanwhile, Kubo’s best friend Lee Kang-in also flew in the first round. Lee, who started in the match against Bahrain, showed good passes and skills to lead the team throughout the game, and made a multi-goal by taking a nice curl and calmly folding the pass from Hwang In-beom to make a multi-goal.
In the game, Lee Kang-in showed the best performance with 9.3 points, creating three opportunities, creating three big opportunities, 67% dribbling success rate, 50% cross success rate, 100% long pass success rate, 4 recoveries, and 8 attack area passes.
Kubo also heard the news of Lee Kang-in. First of all, Kubo said about the Iraq match, “I think it will develop differently from the first match against Vietnam because I will bet on high or fast, but I hope you will respond flexibly as a team.”
In addition, when asked for comment on Lee Kang-in’s impressive performance against Bahrain by scoring two points in an interview, Kubo said, “I can’t comment because I’m not watching the game,” adding, “There is a surprise that such a player scored two goals because Lee Kang-in is not a goalscorer, but I think I should work hard because I have a similar sense as my Japanese national team teammate played in Europe.”
