“I think it’s very bright.”
That’s what Jung Ho-yeon (23, Gwangju) said after meeting Lee Kang-in (22, PSG).
Hwang Sun-hong’s South Korean Asian Games team won their third Group E match of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games 3-0 against Bahrain at the Jinhua Sports Center Stadium in Jinhua, China on Thursday at 8:30 p.m. ET.
With the victory, the Koreans are now unbeaten in three group games.
Hwang Seon-Hong-ho secured his second win of the group with a victory over Thailand to clinch first place early. With the finalization of the Group F standings, Kyrgyzstan is now their opponent for the Round of 16.
After the match, we caught up with Jung Ho-yeon in the mix zone. Jung started the game and combined with Lee Kang-in and Hong Hyun-seok in the center of the defense.
Jung had been curious about Lee Kang-in since before the Asian Games.
In particular, during a match against Suwon FC on July 22, when he was asked about the reaction to his selection to the Asian Games team, he replied, “How can you play with a Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) player?”
At the time, Jung said he was looking forward to playing with Lee Kang-in. He said, “I’ve never seen (Lee Kang-in) before. I’ve played against K League players. I’m curious to see how good he is and what level he is at,” he said.
On the 21st of this month, Lee Kang-in boarded the Hwangseon Hong, and the meeting finally took place. They even played together in this match.온라인카지노
“I think he’s very bright,” Jung said in a shy voice. He has a good ability. I need to match him well,” he said of Lee Kang-in’s soccer skills.
When asked if they talked about anything other than soccer, Jung Ho-yeon said, “No.” The corners of his mouth twitched as he answered. A shy smile appeared on his face as he answered.
“We only talked about soccer. We didn’t really talk about anything else. We talked about things like, ‘Who talks to me more in the midfield and leads me,’ and things like that. Before the game, we told each other to talk to each other if we needed anything.”
For some reason, these are two of the most awkward players on the team. It will be interesting to see how they grow closer together on this journey to gold.
