Lee Kang-in, ‘excluded from the roster’, appears on the ground… ‘Ace Hwang Seon-hong-ho’ warms up with the players


Lee Kang-in (22, PSG) appeared. Although he was not included in the playing list, he took the field.

The Korean Asian Games team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, will play the second match of Group E of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games against Thailand at Jinhua Sports Center Stadium in China at 8:30 pm (Korean time) on the 21st.

30 minutes before kickoff, 22 players from the Korean team appeared on the ground. The three goalkeepers came out first to warm up, and the remaining 19 ground players came out and started stretching afterwards. Among them was Lee Kang-in, who arrived at Hangzhou Airport on the afternoon of the 21st.

In this game, Korea used the 4-4-2 formation. Park Jae-yong and Ko Young-jun form an attack combination, and Eom Won-sang, Baek Seung-ho, Hong Seok-hyeon and Ahn Jae-jun stand in the midfield. Seol Young-woo, Park Jin-seop, Lee Jae-ik, and Hwang Jae-won form the back four, with Lee Gwang-yeon guarding the goal.

The replacement list included Choi Jun, Jeong Woo-young, Jo Young-wook, Min Seong-jun, Lee Han-beom, Jeong Ho-yeon, Kim Tae-hyun, Song Min-gyu, Kim Jeong-hoon, and Park Gyu-hyeon. Lee Kang-in, who arrived at Hangzhou Airport that day and went to the stadium with the players, was not included in the list.

Unlike the rest of the players, Lee Kang-in, who wore a long-sleeved zip-up, checked his physical condition by lightly touching the ball and stretching with the team.

A KFA official explained on this day, “Lee Kang-in arrived at the team’s lodgings around 4:40 pm local time after entering the airport. He was immediately issued an AD card, joined the team, boarded the team bus, and departed for the stadium.”레모나토토

It is highly likely that Lee Kang-in, who was omitted from the playing list today, will make his first appearance against Bahrain in the third match of the group stage on the 24th.

Director Hwang Seon-hong has taken a cautious stance on the hiring of Lee Kang-in. In an interview conducted on the 16th, Coach Hwang responded that he would carefully decide on Lee Kang-in’s playing time, saying, “I plan to carefully review his condition and other factors to decide when to put him in.”

In a follow-up interview conducted in Jinhua, China on the 18th, director Hwang Sun-hong still showed a cautious attitude, saying, “We will closely check (Lee Kang-in’s condition) and hire him after sufficient consultation.”

Meanwhile, the national team implemented a large rotation. Members who played as starters in the first game, including Jung Woo-young, who scored a hat trick in the last game, Jo Young-wook, who scored multiple goals, Lee Han-beom, who showed a good defensive combination with Park Jin-seop, and Park Gyu-hyun, who went on defense with them, will start on the bench in this game.
