‘The golden left foot goes to Spain.’
Lee Kang-in (21, Mallorca), who showed off his strong presence in the World Cup, which is regarded as a dream stage, will return to the Spanish stage.
On the 15th (Korean time), Lee Kang-in’s team, Spanish professional football Primera Liga Mallorca, will play a friendly match against Bologna (Italy). After the friendly, the 2022-2023 season will resume in earnest through the Spanish Copa del Rey (King’s Cup) against Real Union on the 21st.
Lee Kang-in left for Spain on the 13th to digest the schedule. Unlike his teammates, who built up his body during his break, there were variables in digesting the World Cup as a member of the national team, but he rejoined after recharging his real-life performance and confidence.토토
Korea entered the tournament dramatically by writing ‘The Miracle of Alayan’ at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Although they lost to Brazil in the round of 16 and were eliminated early, they deserved applause.
At the center was Lee Kang-in. Lee Kang-in was evaluated as not being trusted by former Korean coach Paulo Bento, but he played an active role as a ‘reliable man’ on the final stage. In the first and second games against Uruguay and Ghana, he stepped on the ground as a substitute. Lee Kang-in, who finished warm-up in the game against Uruguay, showed off his strong presence by recording help right after being substituted for the match against Ghana. He also played a big role in the third match against Portugal, his first World Cup selection. As a result, Korea defeated Portugal and succeeded in advancing dramatically to the round of 16.
Although he was defeated, he proved his future as an attacking midfielder by showing off his unique pressure, wide field of vision, and sharp passing in the game against Brazil, where he again stepped on the ground as a substitute.
It is his determination to carry his momentum to Mallorca. Mallorca is a team that does not even receive a mid-level evaluation in La Liga. However, if Lee Kang-in transfers the performance he showed at the World Cup to his team, there is a high possibility that he will receive a much better record than before the season. Mallorca also asked Lee Kang-in for an early convocation as if he had considered this part. It is expected to be an important second half for Lee Kang-in and the Mallorca team.
