‘Golden Boy’ Lee Kang-in made ‘World Class’ Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain) smile. In his return game as a starter, he showed off his presence by displaying dazzling performances, including serving as the starting point for an additional goal with a ‘kill pass’, which is considered his greatest advantage.
Lee Kang-in started and played full time in the 9th round home game of the 2023-2024 French Ligue 1 against Strasbourg held at Parc des Princes in Paris, France on the 22nd (Korean time) and contributed to Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-0 victory. .
On this day, Lee Kang-in defied expectations and appeared as a starter. This is because he wore the Taegeuk symbol during the October international match and started both the Tunisia and Vietnam matches, and there were predictions that his condition and stamina would not be 100% due to the long flight, and that he might be excluded from the starting lineup.
In addition, some analysts suggested that Lee Kang-in was out of the lineup due to an injury at the end of August, and in the middle of last month, he was unable to play for a while due to being selected for the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games and was pushed out of the competition for the starting role. However, he returned to PSG after about a month and was immediately named to the starting list.
Lee Kang-in played as a right-side striker. Depending on the situation, he made a wide range of movements, such as going down to the halfway line to link the ball and coming inside through switching plays. However, on this day, PSG’s attack was centered on Mbappe, who was located on the left side, so he could not touch the ball often.
Nevertheless, Lee Kang-in showed his presence. In the 31st minute of the first half, he stabbed a penetrating pass with his left foot towards Mbappe, who was penetrating into the space behind the defense from the right side. It was an accurate ‘kill pass’ that instantly broke down the defensive line. In particular, his timing, speed, intensity, and direction matched perfectly.
Lee Kang-in’s ‘kill pass’ led to an additional goal. After receiving his infiltration pass, Mbappe gave a cutback after a brilliant individual performance on the right side of the penalty box, and Carlo Soler (Paris Saint-Germain), who was rushing in front of the goal, lightly pushed in and shook the net.
From then on, Lee Kang-in continued to struggle to create as many threatening opportunities as possible in the offensive zone. In particular, in the 35th minute of the first half, he impressed fans by performing a Marseille turn (a technique of stopping the ball with one foot while dribbling and then rotating the body 360 degrees to avoid the opponent) inside the penalty box.짱구카지노 도메인
While playing full-time, Kang-in Lee recorded one shot, one opportunity creation, and one foul. He attempted 53 passes and succeeded in 48, and in the process, accurately delivered one long pass to a teammate. He was also committed defensively, recording one interception and two tackles.
Meanwhile, PSG, which won thanks to Lee Kang-in’s performance, went undefeated in 4 games (3 wins, 1 draw) and rose to second place in the leaderboard (5 wins, 3 draws, 1 loss, 18 points), having played one game before AS Monaco. . Amid the upward trend, AC Milan will be invited to the home stadium on the 26th to play the third match of Group F of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage.
