Both Son Heung-min and Lee Jae-seong hoped that Lee Kang-in would not feel burdened.

The Korean national football team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, drew 1-1 with El Salvador in a friendly match for the national team invited by Hana Bank held at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 20th.

Although he led the game, as the first half ended scoreless, coach Klinsman replaced Lee Jae-seong and Hwang Eui-jo at the start of the second half. Hwang Eui-jo scored the first goal in the fourth minute and gave the team the lead. However, Klinsmanho allowed the opponent to equalize in a set-piece situation at the end of the second half, ending the game in a draw. As a result, the national team postponed its first victory since the launch of Klinsmann.온라인카지노

On this day, the spotlight turned to Lee Kang-in. This is because Son Heung-min, the captain and key player of the national team, started playing on the bench again after the game against Peru. Like the game against Peru, Lee Kang-in led the team’s attack by making a big success throughout the game as if to repay the expectations for himself. Threatened opponents with dribbling breakthroughs, sharp passes, crosses, and aggressive shooting. Lee Kang-in created many chances in the match against El Salvador, but failed to record an attack point.

I didn’t bow my head this time. After the last game against Peru, Lee Kang-in became a hot topic after being caught on a relay camera looking at the ground with his head down for a while. Lee Kang-in, who was responsible for the team’s attack in the game against Peru, seemed to feel burdened when the team lost despite his performance. After the match against Peru, Lee Kang-in also expressed his regret about the match result in an interview with Mixt Zone. Fortunately, he didn’t do that after the match against El Salvador. In Mixt Zone, he skipped the interview with a cute (?) refusal to say, “Please take one day off.”

However, it was the same with El Salvador that Lee Kang-in had a burden. Lee Kang-in, who was called the future of the national team, became the ‘present and future’ of the national team through his performance last season, the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, and this two consecutive matches by Media A in March. It is true that Lee Kang-in’s performance changes depending on his performance, but it is highly likely that Lee Kang-in, who is only 22 years old, will feel responsible for a country’s national team.

National team seniors Son Heung-min and Lee Jae-seong opened their mouths for Lee Kang-in. First, in an interview with the media on the 18th, Lee Jae-seong said of Lee Kang-in, “It seems that the role of seniors and seniors is to help (Lee) Kang-in to enjoy his abilities without being too burdened in the national team. I hope Kangin can run comfortably without feeling pressured.”

After the match with El Salvador, Son Heung-min said, “I don’t want to give Kang-in too much burden. He’s a player who has to accept that kind of burden someday, but he’s still too young. I don’t want to put pressure on him. Yes. Kangin is a player whose talent is ridiculous. If we watch and enjoy that talent, he will surely do great things for Korea.”
