Lee Kang-in’s (Paris Saint-Germain) second appearance of the tournament came in the 60th minute.
Hwang Sun-hong’s Asian Games men’s football team led Kyrgyzstan 2-1 in the round of 16 men’s football match at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Sunday at the Jinhua Sports Center in Zhejiang, China.
Lee Kang-in started the match. It was his second start of the tournament after the third group game (Bahrain). In the third game, he started and was substituted after 36 minutes. This is because he is still in the process of recovering from his hamstring injury and building up his fitness. Hwang also said that the 36 minutes was a planned substitution.
Once again, Hwang used Lee Kang-in as a second midfielder. The role was given the same “pre-roll” as the third. Lee dropped down to the second and sometimes even the third line to help with the buildup and attack. However, early in the first half, Lee was pinned down by Kyrgyzstan’s tight defense. It was difficult for him to get the ball.메이저놀이터
Lee Kang-in, who was diligently moving back and forth between the center and the flanks, had two flashes of brilliance. In the 36th minute, he sent a cross from the left flank with his outstretched left foot. It didn’t reach Park Jae-yong’s head, but it was definitely a sharp left-footed kick. Then, in the 44th minute, he sent a short cross through the left side of the penalty box. It led to a header by Jung Woo-young, which was saved by the opposing goalkeeper. It was a precise left-footed kick from Lee Kang-in, who recognized Jung Woo-young’s position.
Aside from those two chances, Lee Kang-in’s presence on the field was minimal. In particular, his 100% sprints still seemed risky. There were only a few instances of Lee Kang-in directly holding the ball, dribbling and breaking through.
In the second half, Lee increased the number of times he received the ball near the penalty box. In the 13th minute of the second half, he sent a kill pass to a penetrating Cho Young-wook, but it didn’t reach the latter’s feet. Eventually, Lee Kang-in was substituted for Go Young-joon in the 15th minute and left the field.
