Lee Kang-in, will goal for 2 consecutive games to boost hope for the early 16th round of the 亞 Cup
Attention is focusing on whether Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain, PSG), a key player in the Korean men’s national soccer team led by Jürgen Klinsmann (Germany), will lead his second consecutive win with a score in two consecutive games.
Klinsmann will play Jordan in the second Group E match of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup at Altumama Stadium in Doha, Qatar, at 8:30 p.m. on the 20th (Korea time).
Korea is second in Group E as of Wednesday. It added three more points by winning 3-1 in its first match against Bahrain on the 15th, but Jordan won a landslide 4-0 victory against Malaysia on the same day, falling behind in goal difference.
If Korea beats Jordan, it can increase its chances of advancing to the round of 16 by winning two games to No. 1 in the group. Depending on the results of the Bahrain-Malaysia match on the same day, Korea may decide its advance to the tournament early on.
Lee Kang-in’s performance is important to win against Jordan. Jordan showed firepower, scoring four goals in the first game, but it is unlikely to break through South Korea’s back four line, where Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich) and others are holding out.
Unlike the match against Malaysia, Jordan is likely to use counterattack tactics to defend its players, instead of aggressive management. In the FIFA rankings, Korea (23rd) is far ahead of Jordan, which is ranked 87th, and is also far stronger in terms of power.
In all previous matches, Korea is far ahead of Jordan with three wins, two draws and no losses
Lee Kang-in scored multiple goals in the match against Bahrain, giving his team its first win of the tournament. He crushed his opponent with two sensational left-footed shots.
Not only did he score goals, but he also vitalized the entire team with his unique dribbling, wide field of view, and forward passes. If he shows the same performance in the match against Jordan, he will likely easily break down his defensive opponent’s strategy.
In fact, Klinsmann focused on aggressive tactical training to break the opponent’s defense in training against Jordan. 헤라카지노
If Lee Kang-in performs well, he can also aim for an individual award.
With two goals, Lee Kang-in is tying for second in scores at the tournament along with Mahmoud Almardi, Musa Al-Tamari (Jordan), Takumi Minamino (Japan), Sufachai Chaied (Thailand), Jackson Irvin (Australia), and Sultan Adil (UAE). The top scorer is Akram Afif (Qatar), who scored three goals.
Through this tournament, South Korea will not only win the Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years, but also produce the top scorer for the first time in 13 years since Koo Ja-cheol (Jeju United), who scored five goals at the 2011 Qatar tournament.
