“We have a good synergy when we play together, and we help the team so much.”
Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) responded to Son Heung-min’s (Tottenham Hotspur) comment that he could “do without me” when he met with reporters in the joint press area (Mix Zone) after the team’s 6-0 victory over Vietnam in the October A match at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on Sunday, emphasizing that they are still together.
On the day, Lee shined. He set up Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich) with a sharp cross five minutes after kickoff and then scored his second goal in as many A-Match matches with a delicate left-footed strike in the 25th minute. It wasn’t just his attacking points, though, as he dominated the field with his trademark skill and creativity, proving once again that he’s the next big thing.
Lee has definitely improved his chemistry with other strikers, especially Son Heung-min, Lee Jae-sung (Mainz), and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton Wanderers). As Vietnam were the underdogs, there was less pressure in the attacking third on the day, so there was a sense of hand-in-hand chemistry, but it’s clear that they’ve settled in perfectly now. It made us look forward to his future performances.
“First of all, I’m very happy to get the win, and I’m grateful to my teammates for preparing well and playing really hard,” Lee said. “I’m not a goal scorer, but I feel like I’m always trying and challenging myself to score goals. At the end of the day, I play in an offensive position, so I’m always trying to get offensive points, and I’m very happy that I was able to score a goal and get an assist today. But the most important thing is the team’s victory, so I think I’m most happy about the win 먹튀검증.”
Against Tunisia, Lee sent in a sharp cross from a corner kick, and coincidentally, it was all headed to Kim Min-jae’s head for the goal. The goal against Tunisia was not recognized as an assist as it was recorded as an opponent’s own goal, but against Vietnam, it was officially recorded as an assist.
Lee Kang-in said, “I don’t look at anyone in particular and send crosses, but I practice a lot in training and make adjustments. I think it works well because I know where to put the crosses and the players’ movements are good,” he said. “We will continue to work together and try to create more goals.”
Lee received rave reviews for his multi-goal performance against Tunisia and his “one-man show,” including a spectacular dribble reminiscent of Lionel Messi (Inter Miami). In particular, ‘Captain’ Son Heung-min said, “I played a really good game, including scoring my debut goal in the A-Match. I don’t think they’ll need me anymore, so he did a great job.” He was praised for his performance.
In response, Lee Kang-in said, “I think all soccer fans around the world know that (Son) Heung-min is my brother. We have a good synergy when we play together, and we help the team so much.” “I hope we can play more games together in the future, and we will work hard to work well together in various competitions so that we can always bring good results,” he said in response to Son Heung-min’s praise, emphasizing that they are still together.
“When I go back, I may play a lot, I may not play a lot, I don’t know what the situation will be, so I will always try to do my best, always be in good shape, and always give my best performance,” said Lee, who will return to Paris Saint-Germain in about a month to compete for a starting spot again.
