Coach Hwang Seon-hong (pictured), who leads the Korean U-24 national soccer team, which will compete in the Hangzhou Asian Games in September, is contemplating how to maximize Lee Kang-in’s (Mallorca) performance.
The Asian Games national team was convened at the Paju National Soccer Team Training Center (NFC) on the 15th. With the K-League in progress, K-League players gathered for a short three-day training without any foreign players. The national team has many offensive options for the second line of the K-League, such as Eom Won-sang (Ulsan), Ko Young-jun (Pohang), Ko Jae-hyeon (Daegu), Um Ji-seong (Gwangju), Lee Tae-seok (Seoul), and Yang Hyeon-jun (Gangwon).
Although he could not join this time, the resource that draws the most attention is Lee Kang-in, who is expected to be a member of the A national team as well as recognized for his competitiveness in the Spanish Primera Liga. Coach Hwang said, “It’s difficult to say everything overall, but I’m thinking about how to use it.” However, the key is how competitive he can be in other positions.” Coach Hwang tested Lee Kang-in in various ways at the U-23 Asian Cup held in Uzbekistan in March last year.메이저놀이터
Coach Hwang said, “(Just before the Asian Games) I have time to convene in September. At that time, I will communicate with him, and I will induce Lee Kang-in to play well and play in his favorite position.” It can be interpreted as meaning that Lee Kang-in, who is capable of multi-position, will maximize his ability without limiting his position to the side of his current team position.
Reinforcing the front line, which has less weight compared to the second line of attack, is a homework task. Coach Hwang said, “I have a lot of worries about the striker part, and there is a lot of competition in the side midfield line. . The possibility of filling the forefront with a wild card is also open. Regarding the wild card selection, he said, “I am thinking about a pool of about 10 people.” “Because it is a short-term match, the most important thing is how much one team can compete,” he said. “We will select players who can move towards one goal.”
Korean soccer has won gold medals in consecutive Asian Games, from Incheon in 2014 to Palembang in Jakarta in 2018. Director Hwang said, “My shoulders are heavy. However, if it is unavoidable, he must face it with confidence,” he said, revealing his willingness to challenge for a third straight victory.
