Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) played his first match since joining the squad midway through the tournament as Korea clinched an early berth in the round of 16.
Hwang Sun-hong’s South Korea Asian Games men’s football team went into halftime with a 0-0 scoreline against Bahrain in their third Group E match of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Thursday at the Jinhua Sports Center Stadium in Zhejiang, China.
South Korea, who secured a spot in the round of 16 with wins in both the first and second rounds, started the game with Lee Kang-in, who joined the team on July 21 after playing for his club.
Lee drew a foul while dribbling in the third minute of the match, which led to a sharp free kick from Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart).
Korea then took the lead in the 18th minute when a sharp cross led to a header by Lee Han-beom (Seoul). In the 24th minute, Jung Woo-young’s cross found Cho Young-wook (Gimcheon Sangmu) after a sensational pass from Lee Kang-in, but the goal was denied by the goalkeeper.카지노사이트
In the 35th minute, Lee Kang-in delivered a so-called “courier cross” down the left flank, but Jung Woo-young’s header was not on target. Lee Kang-in was then substituted off for Ko Young-joon (Pohang).
Still in control of the game after Lee Kang-in’s departure, South Korea continued to attack, but were thwarted by Bahrain’s strong defense, and the first half ended scoreless.
