It’s everyone’s job to enjoy Lee Kang-in’s development.
Jürgen Klinsmann’s South Korea national soccer team cruised to a 5-0 victory over Singapore in the first match of Group C of the second Asian qualifying round for the FIFA Confederations Cup North America 2026 at Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on Saturday.
The victory was a team effort, but if there was one player who stood out, it was Lee Kang-in. Starting the game, Lee threatened the defense with his dribbling from the flanks and passing from sharp kicks. He was responsible for Lee Jae-sung’s crucial header that was saved by the goalkeeper, the goal that was canceled out, and the assist for Cho Kyu-sung’s first goal.
Lee’s performance continued in the second half. In the fourth minute of the second half, Lee drove the ball down the right flank and beat two defenders. He was tripped up by the defense, but the loose ball was collected by Cho Kyu-sung and sent in a cross that Hwang Hee-chan headed home for the second goal. Before Son Heung-min’s wonder goal, Lee Kang-in was the one who tried to break through on the dribble. When Seol Young-woo was awarded a penalty kick, Lee made a sensational pass to Seol, and he celebrated with a powerful shot for the fifth goal.
With his performance against Singapore, Lee has now scored in three consecutive A-Match matches, following his goals against Tunisia and Vietnam in October. In his last three games, Lee has four goals and two assists. There is no disputing that Lee is now the ace of the national team. 토토사이트
His talent blossomed with Mallorca last season, and he’s only gotten better since joining Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) this season. Since the October A-match, Lee has increased his value by scoring in the French Ligue 1 and UEFA Champions League (UCL) before the match against Singapore.
His talent is blossoming between club and national teams. What’s more, he’s still only 22 years old, so there’s still time for him to grow into an even bigger player. His age and immeasurable talent is why Korean soccer fans can’t wait to see him grow.
