(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Jang Bo-in = Coach Hwang Seon-hong of the Korean men’s Olympic team was delighted with Lee Kang-in (21, Mallorca) returning to the A team.
Coach Hwang Seon-hong, who started preparing for the 2024 Paris Olympics, has been holding the first call-up training for the Olympic team since the 18th. Kangin Lee is not here.
He participated in the 2022 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup as a member of the national under-23 (U-23) team in June, and is currently called up to the A team under coach Paulo Bento. This is the return of the adult national team after a year and 6 months.
Hwang, who met with reporters at the auxiliary stadium in Hwaseong Sports Complex, Gyeonggi-do, before training for the Olympic team on the 21st, said, “It is very positive that Bento has called Lee Kang-in again. I personally sent a message to congratulate him.”
He continued, “I think we are competitive enough. When I see Kang In-i playing in Europe, he tries a lot to change. “He said, “I can see such things, so I can join the national team,” he explained.
Manager Hwang expressed his desire to see Kang-in Lee in the national team uniform at the FIFA World Cup Qatar Finals, which starts in November.
He said, “I want to do my best to participate in the World Cup. I hope to lead Korean football in the future.”
Lee Kang-in also said, “I will work hard and do my best. He is said to have sent a reply saying, ‘I will build a good body and join the national under-23 team later.’
Kang-in Lee did not hide his desire for a ticket to Qatar.
He got his last chance this season by putting in an outstanding performance in Spain’s La Liga, including scoring attacking points (one goal and three assists) in four consecutive games.
As the September A match convening is the last inspection period for foreign groups before the start of the World Cup, Kang-in Lee must prove his worth in the Bentu through the upcoming evaluation matches against Costa Rica ( 23rd) and Cameroon (27th).
In a non-face-to-face press conference for the A team on the same day, Kang-in Lee said, “As a soccer player, it’s very natural to want to go to the World Cup. I want to show that I am a player who can help the team a lot. Then I believe I will be able to go to the World Cup.”
