Lee Kang-in, who was ‘hit in the face’, can play in the Asian Cup… In the main round, Middle Eastern team should be careful about ‘nervous war’ and ‘unfair judgment’

Lee Kang-in (22) of Paris Saint-Germain couldn’t contain his emotions for the moment. It could be a war of nerves, but it is a reaction that could come out well because it hit the face. However, Middle Eastern teams are playing for one of the best teams in Europe and will constantly keep in check the next generation of ace players.

The Korea Football Association announced the issue regarding Lee Kang-in’s exit on the 7th (Korea time). According to the association, Lee Kang-in received the first warning in the 24th minute of the second half and received the second warning in the 41st minute and was sent off accumulated warnings. There was no disciplinary action related to the exit, so it was not linked to his participation in the Asian Cup.

The South Korean national team, led by Jürgen Klinsmann, played an exhibition match against Iraq at the New York University Stadium in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates, on the 6th. They chose Iraq, the team that advanced to the finals, as the final rehearsal for the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, which will be held from the 12th.

Klinsmann has been preparing squads for Asian Cup since June, except for two A-match warm-up matches in March, in which he celebrates round of 16 at FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 in front of his home fans. Although he has often selected young players who moved to Europe, there has been no change in the overall structure of the team.

It was the same in the final list. They only added Kim Ji-soo (Brentford), Kim Joo-sung (FC Seoul), and Yang Hyun-joon (Celtic FC) to the squad they had been strengthening since June. Although there was a prospect that the absence of Hwang Ui-jo, who was tentatively excluded from the national team for two consecutive seasons due to illegal filming, would be filled by the top scorer Joo Min-kyu (Ulsan HD) in the K-League, instead of picking one more striker, they recruited a player who had been operating within the squad pool until now. 헤라카지노

The Korean national team gathered in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates on Jan. 2 for off-season training for the Asian Cup. Lee Kang-in joined the team after the French Super Cup and became a whole team on the 5th. Although players who played in Europe played in the season or joined the team after the winter break, the prevailing expectation was that they would operate Plan A in the match against Iraq.

In the match against Iraq, Klinsmann deployed “Plan B” instead of “Plan A.” After placing key players Son Heung-min, Hwang Hee-chan, Kim Min-jae, Cho Kyu-sung and Lee Kang-in on the bench, he formed the starting lineup with Oh Hyun-kyu, Jung Woo-young and Kim Young-kwon. Given that he is looking to win the title for the first time in 64 years, he was able to understand the “Plan B” inspection given the variables in the tournament.
