For Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham Hotspur), the Korean national team has always been a place of responsibility. He wanted Lee Kang-in (21, Mallorca) to wear the red uniform of the Korean national team, emphasizing his sense of responsibility.
Korea appointed a new coach after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Last month, coach Jurgen Klinsmann entrusted the baton, and recorded 1 draw and 1 loss in March evaluation matches (Colombia and Uruguay).
Fans’ expectations were high because they wrote the history of the away round of 16 in 12 years at the Qatar World Cup. Coach Klinsmann assigned Son Heung-min the offensive midfielder and free role. In the match against Uruguay, they sent ‘Golden Boy’ Lee Kang-in as a starter and chose coexistence.
Lee Kang-in was overwhelming in the game against Uruguay. The advantages he showed in Mallorca this season were perfectly melted in Sangam. He grabbed the ball from the side and made a sharp left-footed pass, and even when Uruguay players pressed 2 or 3, he stripped it off with a graceful dribble. A crowd of 10,000 people gathered in Sangam also cheered and sang for Lee Kang-in.
Hwang In-beom scored the equalizer, but the game ended in a 1-2 loss. After the game, in the Mixed Zone (joint coverage area), Son Heung-min advised Lee Kang-in, “It was a good match. He is a player who will gradually play a key role in the national team. He will receive a lot of attention, so I think he should feel a lot of responsibility.”
Lee Kang-in also knew Son Heung-min’s heart well. He thought it was more important than anyone else to wear the Taegeuk symbol while playing for the Korean national team. After playing against Uruguay, the sense of mission for the Korean national team became more determined.
Lee Kang-in said, “I try to be helpful no matter where I am. I will play for the team no matter where I play. I received a lot of attention after the World Cup. It is a position representing Korea. I have a lot of responsibility. Become a better player and Korea has good results.” I will make it possible,” he responded to Son Heung-min’s advice. 카지노
