The U-24 national soccer team led by head coach Hwang Seon-hong will train at the Paju National Team Training Center (NFC) from the 25th to the 27th ahead of the Hangzhou Asian Games in September. Coach Hwang Seon-hong called the players to the NFC on the 25th. Excluding players from overseas, players playing in a friendly match against Atletico Madrid during the week, and Lee Sang-min, who was removed from the roster due to a drunk driving scandal, 14 players gathered.온라인바카라

The concern of many is whether Lee Kang-in will participate in the Asian Games. When the Asian Games final list was announced, Lee Kang-in was also on the list. Lee Kang-in is already classified as a key resource in the A team, but he has not yet performed his military service. If you win a gold medal at the Asian Games, you can fulfill your military service obligation by being transferred to an artistic gymnasium according to the Military Service Act and receiving training for about a month. Son Heung-min, who won the gold medal at the 2018 Jakarta Palembang Asian Games, did that, and last month, Kim Min-jae entered the training center to receive basic military training and left early this month.

However, it was not confirmed that Lee Kang-in would participate in the Asian Games. Since the Asian Games are not hosted by the International Football Federation (FIFA), there are no mandatory selection rules for players. In other words, you can refuse to borrow. At the time of the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, Leverkusen, Son Heung-min’s team, rejected Son Heung-min’s selection, and Son Heung-min was unable to participate in the Asian Games. Afterwards, Son Heung-min participated as a wild card in the Jakarta Palembang Asian Games held four years later, and won a gold medal and received military service benefits.

coordination is needed Head coach Hwang Seon-hong said at a press conference that while Kang-in Lee was with Mallorca, he had finished discussions with Mallorca, but as Lee Kang-in suddenly transferred to PSG, he said that he had to coordinate with PSG again about Lee Kang-in’s Asian Games selection.

Lee Kang-in’s will to participate in the Asian Games is known to be strong. Director Hwang Seon-hong also said that he is working hard. At the time of the announcement of the final list, coach Hwang Seon-hong said, “Lee Kang-in’s will for the Asian Games is strong. Because the player himself has a strong will, there is an expectation that it will be well coordinated. We plan to convene as a full team on September 4. However, during the period after that, it will be difficult to recruit if the club does not allow it.

It seems that the discussion is still ongoing. In an interview in Paju, when asked about Lee Kang-in’s selection, coach Seon-Hong Hwang said, “It’s difficult to tell everything, but I confirmed that there was a positive rapport at the time of signing the contract with PSG.

In the end, the key is PSG’s permission. Lee Kang-in, who joined PSG through the summer transfer market, is currently participating in pre-season training and sweating hard for the next season. However, apart from training, adapting to the team through games, that is, actual matches, is a different matter. It is unlikely that PSG recruited Lee Kang-in with the intention of keeping him only on the bench, and PSG would also hope that Lee Kang-in quickly adapts to the team. It is also a matter of concern to allow players to be selected at a time when they have to adapt to the team. PSG’s choice depends on Lee Kang-in’s gold medal challenge.

Meanwhile, Lee Kang-in was injured in a recent friendly match. Lee Kang-in started before Le Havre, his first pre-season game in France, and showed good performance, but he complained of pain in his hamstring during the game and was substituted before the end of the first half.

At that time, Kang-in Lee became the center of the attack, going back and forth between the center and the flanks. Similar to his time in Mallorca, he took off the opponent’s pressure with a flashy but calm dribble, then drove the ball up and pricked it to a teammate at the right time. It was his unofficial debut, but he made an impressive performance. It was no exaggeration to say that the first half of PSG was centered on Lee Kang-in. Lee Kang-in created chances for his teammates with several good passes, but none of them scored.

While the game was going well, a problem arose. Lee Kang-in suddenly grabbed his hamstring and complained of pain. Lee Kang-in briefly touched his right hamstring with his right hand while trying to sprint to join the attack in PSG’s attack chance in the 42nd minute of the first half. Even in the 43rd minute of the first half, Lee Kang-in touched his hamstring with a look of pain, and was eventually substituted before the end of the first half. PSG made the choice to quickly replace Lee Kang-in.

Afterwards, there was speculation that Lee Kang-in might be excluded from the preseason list due to an injury, but fortunately Lee Kang-in boarded a plane to Japan. Lee Kang-in appeared in the training ground attendance video released by PSG on the 23rd, but he was not seen playing at the training ground. It was speculated that he was missing for recovery and injury management. Lee Kang-in was included in the replacement list for the friendly against Al Nasr.
