South Korea’s men’s football ‘Hwang Sun-hong-ho’ will be looking to win a third consecutive Asian Games gold medal in Hangzhou this year, after winning in Incheon in 2014 and Jakarta-Palembang in 2018.Born in 20001, Lee joined world-renowned French club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) ahead of this season and is arguably the ace of Korean football, ready to take his ‘golden shot’ at the top of the Asian Games podium.Playing primarily as an attacking midfielder, Lee is also a set-piece kicker with a precise kick, and his dazzling footwork is a sight to behold.Dubbed a “prodigy” for his outstanding skills from an early age, Lee joined Valencia’s (Spain) youth team in 2011 at the age of 10, and in 2018 he made his debut in the Spanish top flight at the Copa del Rey (King’s Cup) at the age of 17 years and 327 days, the youngest Korean player ever to do so.At the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup at the age of 18, Lee scored two goals and provided four assists to lead South Korea to its best-ever runner-up finish in a men’s tournament, and he was named the tournament’s Golden Ball winner.Lee’s growth continued.He was at his best throughout the 2022-2023 season with Mallorca (Spain), becoming the first Korean player to reach double-digit offensive points in a season (six goals, six assists). Three La Liga Round of 11 (rounds 3-11-30) selections were a bonus.At last year’s World Cup in Qatar, he was instrumental in South Korea’s run to the round of 16, coming on as a substitute in the second half of the group stage match against Ghana to set up Cho Kyu-sung’s (Mitwylan) goal and then taking the corner kick that led to Kim Young-kwon’s (Ulsan) game-winner in the third against Portugal.Having worked his way up through the ranks, the ‘football prodigy’ finally joined PSG in the summer transfer window, where he became a ‘world class’ player, playing alongside world football star Kylian Mbappe (France).Lee’s commitment to the Asian Games is strong.”I know that when he signed his contract with PSG, he had a clause in it that he had to play in the Asian Games,” said coach Jürgen Klinsmann.There was a tug-of-war between Klinsmann’s A team and Hwang Sun-hong’s Asian Games squad over Lee’s availability.Hwang, who has never worked with Lee, who is a key part of the team’s tactics, wanted to bring him along for “full training” during this month’s A matches (4-13 April).However, Klinsmann, who hasn’t won since taking over (2 draws and 2 losses), announced that Lee will join the Asian Games squad after the A team selection.While the loan issue has been resolved, the injury situation is a bit of a concern.On 22 March, PSG announced that Lee had injured his left thigh (quadriceps) and would be out until at least the end of the A-match break.After playing 82 minutes in the Ligue 1 first leg and 51 minutes in the second leg, Lee was sidelined for the third leg.According to the club’s announcement, if Lee Kang-in is able to recover by the end of the A-match break, he will join the Asian Games squad on the 16th and play his first match against Kuwait in Group E on the 19th.Even if Lee is fully recovered from his injury, he will have little time to gel with his teammates and refine his tactics.However, with the goal of winning the title, Hwang’s presence is essential.We’re looking forward to seeing him lead the to a third consecutive Asian 카지노사이트 Games title.
