The official website of the French Ligue 1 announced the best 11 fantasy football players in the league on Monday (Aug. 18). Four Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) players (Marquinhos, Kylian Mbappe, Lee Kang-in, and Warren Ziar Emery) made the list, including Lee Kang-in.
Jürgen Klinsmann’s South Korea national football team cruised to a 5-0 victory over Singapore in the first match of the 2026 FIFA Confederations Cup North America Second Qualifying Round in Asia at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on Saturday. With the three points, South Korea tops Group C of the second qualifying round. South Korea will travel to Shenzhen, China, to face China in the second leg on June 21.레모나토토
Lee Kang-in played the full game and recorded one goal and one assist. Lee Kang-in and Cho Kyu-sung, who shared the opening goal against Ghana at the World Cup in Qatar, struck again.
In the 44th minute, Lee Kang-in floated a ball to Cho Kyu-sung on the far left near the corner of Singapore’s right box, and he headed it home.
Lee Kang-in split the Singapore goal with a left-footed cannonball in the 40th minute of the second half with Korea leading 4-0. It was the result of Lee’s quick decision and accurate shot. The unturned kick went straight into the back of the net.
After an injury-plagued start to the season after joining PSG, Lee has been on fire since the Asian Games gold medal. Not only did he score a goal in three consecutive matches in the A-League, but he also scored his PSG debut against AC Milan, followed by a goal and an assist on his league debut.
He has emerged as PSG’s go-to man, especially in the league, where he has partnered with Mbappe. PSG coach Luis Enrique himself has spoken highly of Lee on numerous occasions. This trust has allowed Enrique to use him in several positions as a key part of his tactics.
Speaking after the 3-0 win over Reims, he said of Lee, who started on the left wing and then moved to center and second striker in the second half, “Good players can play in different positions. He’s a great player,” he said, adding, “He surprises me every time we train. He is the best player who never loses the ball.”
Enrique is even considering Lee Kang-in as Mbappe’s new partner. According to a report by French outlet RMC Sport, Enrique has been working on a new formation during the international break. One of the changes is reportedly to use Lee as a “fake number nine”.
Ligue 1 recognized the performance. On their official channel, Ligue 1 named Lee Kang-In as their Ligue 1 Fantasy Football Best 11 for October, stating, “Lee returned to Ligue 1 after the Asian Games and showed off his skills at will. Both his debut assist against Brest and his debut goal against Montpellier were dominant.”
Mbappe, meanwhile, was unsurprisingly named in the Best 11. The official Ligue 1 website said: “Mbappe has scored six goals in four games. It’s literally the best performance of the season. For the season as a whole, that’s 13 goals in 11 games.” “Mbappe has his issues, but Mbappe is Mbappe,” wrote the official website.
