After warming up in the third match of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games Men’s Football Group E, ‘Ace’ Lee Kang-In (Paris Saint-Germain) will start for the second consecutive match. This time, it will be interesting to see if he plays the full game.
Hwang Sun-hong’s side will face Kyrgyzstan in the round of 16 on Sunday at the Jinhua Sports Center Stadium in Zhejiang, China. It is the tournament’s first gateway to a third straight title.
Kyrgyzstan is ranked 96th by the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), but they are no pushover. South Korea has won the last three meetings between the two teams, all by 1-0 scores. Given their defensive tactics, they will need to take control with an early goal.
On the day, Hwang Sun-hong will deploy a 4-2-3-1 formation. Park Jae-yong will lead the attack up front, while Jung Woo-young, Lee Kang-in, and Uhm Won-sang will support him in the second line.스포츠토토
Baek Seung-ho and Jung Ho-yeon form the midfield to coordinate the play, while Seol Young-woo, Kim Tae-hyun, Park Jin-seop, and Hwang Jae-won form the back four defense. In goal is Lee Kwang-yeon.
Lee Kang-in is the most prominent starter. A late addition to the squad due to injury and club commitments, Lee started the third group game against Bahrain and was given 36 minutes to warm up.
Despite the short time, Lee made his presence felt. Despite being heavily guarded by the opposition from the start of the game, he created several attacking opportunities with his crisp passing.
Lee Kang-in’s performance in today’s match will also be of interest. It will be interesting to see if he can break through Kyrgyzstan’s thick defense and lead them to the quarterfinals.
