He took off his clothes to train. Lee Kang-in (22, PSG) was fired up.
The Korean Asian Games team, led by Hwang Sun-hong, began training at 8 p.m. (local time) on Wednesday at the Jinhua No. 1 Middle School in Jinhua, China.
With a 9-0 win over Kuwait in the first game of Group E and a 4-0 win over Thailand in the second game to secure first place in the group, the team will play their third game against Bahrain at the Jinhua Sports Center Stadium on the 24th.
Prior to the match, the players went through light stretches together before being divided into three groups.
The three goalkeepers, Lee Kwang-yeon, Kim Jung-hoon, and Min Sung-joon, trained with the goalkeeping coaches, while the field players were divided into two groups to practice rondo.
Both groups were in good spirits.
Lee Kang-in was the standout. Grouped together with Jung Woo-young and Song Min-kyu, Lee Kang-in had a lot of fun, sighing in frustration and laughing while holding his stomach.
It wasn’t all fun and games. When things didn’t go his way in training, Lee stormed over to the bench and removed his long-sleeved sweatshirt over his short-sleeved sweatshirt. After that, he became more serious and competitive.
On the 22nd, Lee was grouped separately with Song Min-gyu, Lee Han-beom, Kim Jung-hoon, Min Sung-joon, Choi Joon, and Park Kyu-hyun for a quick warm-up. Instead of practicing as a team, he seemed to be recovering and adapting. However, on the 23rd, the team practiced in earnest.
Lee Kang-in, who met with the press on the 22nd, said, “I tried to come as soon as possible. I feel very sorry for my teammates and coaching staff. I’m excited to be with them. We’ll talk a lot and try to get along well so that we can achieve good results,” he said. 굿모닝토토
Lee added, “It’s important to settle in with my teammates as soon as possible. It’s been a long time since I joined the team and it’s been a long time since I’ve played with my teammates. I need to get up to speed quickly,” he said, emphasizing that it is more important to be in sync with the players than their individual physical condition.
“I’m representing the country of Korea, so I have to be eager and try to win like any other game,” he said, adding that he will take responsibility for the tournament.
