“I hope I’m in 100% condition.”
The Korean men’s under-24 soccer team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, will play its first match against Kuwait in the Group E preliminary round of the 2022 19th Hangzhou Asian Games at Jinhua Stadium in Zhejiang Province, China, at 8:30 p.m. on the 19th.소닉카지노
Coach Hwang Seon-hong entered Hangzhou on the 16th and is training with 21 Taegeuk Warriors. Starting with captain Baek Seung-ho (Jeonbuk Hyundai), wild cards such as Park Jin-seop (Jeonbuk), Seol Young-woo (Ulsan Hyundai), Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart), Lee Han-beom (Wiltmiran), Eom Won-sang (Ulsan), Jeong Ho-yeon (Gwangju FC), and Ko Young-jun (Pohang Steelers), all players considered to be among the best in their age group gathered here.
And this player joins a little late. This is Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), the brother Kang-in everyone is waiting for. Lee Kang-in plans to join his French team, Paris Saint-Germain, as soon as their 2023-24 UEFA Champions League match against Dortmund ends on the 19th.
In fact, it was true that Lee Kang-in’s joining was not certain until the afternoon of the 14th. There were also concerns that if negotiations between the Football Association and PSG failed, the Asian Games would be played with 21 players instead of 22.
Director Hwang Seon-hong also said at a press conference on the 14th, “I am also frustrated. I am personally communicating with Lee Kang-in. “He wants to join as soon as possible, but it seems like there is no coordination with PSG on the timing of joining,” he said.
Since he has not been in 100% condition recently and this is a competition where he is not required to be selected for the national team, PSG could have judged that they would suffer greater losses if they gave up Lee Kang-in.
But fortunately, an agreement was reached. The Football Association said on the 15th, “As a result of discussions, it was agreed that he will join the Asian Games national team after the home match against Dortmund,” and added, “On the night of the 14th, the PSG club finally received an official response that it would allow him to join the Asian Games national team on the 20th without any other preconditions.” “I received it,” he said.
He will not be able to play in the first game against Kuwait and the second game against Thailand, but if he is in good condition, he may play as a substitute in the third game against Bahrain. He was unable to play for about a month due to a left quadriceps injury at the end of August, and was unable to play in the national team’s two-game international match in September. We need to figure out Lee Kang-in’s condition.
Director Hwang Seon-hong, who met in Hangzhou on the 18th, said, “It is expected to arrive after 6 PM on the 21st. It’s a situation he has to continue to create with his players. “I plan to check closely and create a good combination,” he said.
The match between Lee Kang-in’s PSG and Dortmund will be held in the early morning of the 20th, Korean time. However, coach Hwang Seon-hong plans to give up his early morning sleep to watch this game, which may be Lee Kang-in’s comeback game.
Coach Hwang Seon-hong said, “It would be good to play a lot of time in good condition. I hope I stay in 100% condition. “I plan to watch the game,” he said.
However, before Lee Kang-in joins, the priority is to win both of the previous two games to confirm the round of 16 or take an advantageous position in the round of 16.
Coach Hwang Seon-hong also said, “I think the first game is the most important. “I will do my best,” he said. “I definitely want to win.” We must win, and we will win. I believe that if the players maintain their composure rather than feeling rushed and pressured, they will win. “I hope you have a lot of support,” he said.
