When will ‘golden talent’ Lee Kang-in (22-PSG) be able to play?
Lee Kang-in’s date to join the Asian Games squad has been set. “After discussions with PSG, it was finally agreed that Lee Kang-in will join the Asian Games squad after the club’s home match against Dortmund (Germany) in the European Champions League on Nov. 19,” the Korea Football Association announced on Nov. 15.
Until Hwang Sun-hong, the head coach of the Asian Games team, held a press conference in Paju on April 14, there was no definite timeline for Lee’s arrival. At the time, Hwang said he was “frustrated” and hoped Lee would join the team as soon as possible.
The team, which is in Group E of the Asian Games, will open its Asian Games campaign against Kuwait on Nov. 19. They will face Thailand on Nov. 21 and Bahrain on Nov. 24. All three games will be played at the Jinhua Sports Center Stadium in Zhejiang, China.
With the tournament just around the corner, it was difficult to prepare tactics without knowing when Lee Kang-in would join the team. Fortunately, we’ve solved a big problem.
Lee will most likely play in the third match of the Asian Games group stage. Lee will fly to South Korea to play against Dortmund on Sept. 20 and arrive in Hangzhou, China, on Sept. 21. Due to the schedule, it is not possible for him to play in the second game against Thailand on the same day. He will be available for the third round match against Bahrain. Alternatively, he could start playing in the round of 16 tournament.
However, coach Hwang Sun-hong said earlier that he hopes Lee Kang-in can play one or two games in the group stage before entering the tournament. This is why he is likely to play in Bahrain in the third round.
Hwang departed for Hangzhou, China, on the morning of the 16th through Incheon International Airport. “If Lee Kang-in joins the team, we will closely examine his physical condition and fitness before deciding when to introduce him,” Hwang said, according to News1. “We’ll figure out at what point he’ll be at his best and put him in the game. We will play him when he is in perfect shape, not too soon.”
Until Lee Kang-in arrives, other players will have to step up. Hong Hyun-seok (KAA Hent), who joined the Asian Games squad after completing his A team commitments, told reporters in Paju on Thursday, “I’m excited because the tournament is just around the corner, and I know I have to prepare well,” he said. When asked about having to fill the void left by Lee Kang-in, he said, “There is no pressure. I’m going to focus on my play.”카지노
“Personally, I’m aiming for at least three goals,” said Cho Young-wook, who has been on a goal-scoring tear for the K League Two Sangju Sangmu.
South Korea will be looking to win their third consecutive title after winning the 2014 Incheon and 2018 Jakarta-Palembang. At the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games, “team captain” Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Kim Min-jae (Napoli) won gold medals and received military service benefits.
