Lee Kang-in is coming! ‘Asian Games green light’ for Kang to start from Game 3
The timing of Lee Kang-in’s arrival at the Asian Games was finalized last night.
The Korea Football Association announced that after consultation with Paris Saint-Germain, Lee will join the Asian Games squad on the 20th after their European Champions League home game.
Hwang Sun-hong’s first group game will be held on the 19th, and Lee Kang-in will join the team on the 21st for their second group game against Thailand.
As such, they are expected to be available for the third group game on the 24th.
It’s a welcome breath of fresh air for coach Hwang Sun-hong, who didn’t know for sure when Lee would join the team until yesterday.
[Hwang Sun-hong/Asian Games head coach: “It’s not an unattainable goal, so I’ll do my best to bring good looks and results to the fans by being a trinity of me, the support staff, and the players.”]
With the addition of ace Lee Kang-in, Hwang Sun-hong’s offense will be even more potent.
With wildcard Baek Seung-ho orchestrating the offense from the midfield, Lee Kang-in will form a formidable line with the likes of Hong Hyun-seok, Jung Woo-young, and Uhm Won-sang, all of whom are capable of scoring goals.
Most importantly, having Lee Kang-in play from the group stage will strengthen the team’s organization in the round of 16 tournament, 온라인카지노 which will further boost their goal of a third consecutive Asian Games gold medal.
