‘Golden Boy’ Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain)’s debut goal performance in the international match saw the Korean national soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany) express his gratitude, saying, “I am very happy.”

Coach Klinsmann was asked about Lee Kang-in's performance at the official press conference for the Hana Bank friendly national soccer team match between Korea and Vietnam held at the Suwon World Cup Stadium in Gyeonggi-do on the 16th, and said, "He showed a very good performance, and it was a fantastic performance. 온라인카지노사이트

I am very happy."

“I think,” he replied.

Lee Kang-in scored two goals alone in the second half of the friendly match against Tunisia held at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 13th, leading Korea to a 4-0 victory.

Three days later, Coach Klinsmann stood in front of the media again and when the topic of Lee Kang-in came up, he smiled with a characteristic smile and said, "This game will serve as an opportunity to develop and mature to the next level."

He added, "Both Lee Kang-in and Lee Jae-sung can play both the side and center.

“He is a talented player, and when Son Heung-min returns, we need to figure out how to form a combination.”

In response to the point out that Lee Kang-in played better on the right side than when he played in the center in the match against Tunisia, Coach Klinsmann said, "We use a 4-2-3-1 formation and continue to ask attacking players to rotate."

“Even if you start from , you can change your position to the center or right,” he explained.

He also said, “What is important is the process of switching to defense,” adding, “In attack, autonomy is guaranteed so that players can use 100% of their skills creatively, but when the ball is taken away, they must be able to immediately switch to defense from an empty spot or their own position.”

“I do,” he added.

He said, "In the match against Tunisia, the players did a good job in this area, and we were able to see Lee Jae-sung adjusting his position through many conversations with Lee Kang-in."

He added, "In particular, in the second half, Lee Kang-in cleared the ball near the defensive penalty area, so the defensive side also showed signs of improvement."

“I was satisfied with the effort and growth,” he said.

Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), who was present at the press conference, also said, “I heard that (Lee) Kang-in feels more comfortable playing on the right side in his team and in the Asian Games recently.

“We talked among ourselves and changed the position a little bit,” he said, explaining the change in position for the Tunisia game.

Lee Jae-seong said, “When looking for such combinations in the future, I think it is the role of second-line strikers to consider which position can perform better.”

Meanwhile, ahead of the friendly match against Vietnam on the 17th, Lee Jae-seong said, "The team's atmosphere is good because we played well against Tunisia," and expressed his determination, "As the players came well-rested, we will prepare without slowing down for tomorrow's game."

Lee Jae-seong said, “You may experience difficulties when you meet a weak opponent, so you need to prepare well mentally and focus more on shooting or passing.”

He added, “Through this Vietnam match, we will treat it like a real match to gain experience in preparation for the second preliminary round.”

“I will do it,” he pledged.
