The former team also reacted to the news of the debut goal.
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) defeated AC Milan 3-0 in the third match of Group F of the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League (UCL) held at Parc des Princes in Paris, France on the 26th (Korean time).
PSG took the lead with Kylian Mbappe’s first goal in the 32nd minute of the first half. Then, in the 8th minute of the second half, Randal Colo-Muanyi scored an additional goal to completely seize the momentum.
And in the 44th minute of the second half, Lee Kang-in scored his PSG debut goal. Warren Jair Emery attempted a ground ball cross from the right side, and Gonzalo Hamus, who was in the box, passed the pass backwards. The ball was connected to Lee Kang-in, who was rushing, and Lee Kang-in shook AC Milan’s net with a powerful shot.
After the game, Lee Kang-in received many congratulations. He even celebrated his debut goal through his own social networking service (SNS).
Meanwhile, unexpected congratulations arrived. His former team, Mallorca, sent a congratulatory message. On the 27th, Mallorca uploaded a photo celebrating Lee Kang-in’s PSG debut goal through their official SNS. In the photo, Lee Kang-in and Muriki, who was once Lee Kang-in’s best friend during his time in Mallorca, were together. And below is a photo of Lee Kang-in’s PSG debut goal.
Mallorca also added a congratulatory message, saying, “Congratulations on your last goal in La Liga and your first goal in UCL.” We reexamined Lee Kang-in’s last goal during his time at Mallorca and congratulated him on his UCL debut goal. Before today’s game, Lee Kang-in’s last goal for his team came in the match against Athletic Bilbao in the 32nd round of the Spanish La Liga last season. And with a goal against AC Milan, he scored for his team for the first time in about five months.
Mallorca sent Lee Kang-in to PSG this summer. Until last season, Lee Kang-in was Mallorca’s core. He led the attack with brilliant dribbling and sharp passes. He made 39 appearances in all competitions, scoring 6 goals and providing 6 assists. Thanks to this, PSG showed an active attitude toward recruiting Lee Kang-in, and eventually succeeded in recruiting him. Meanwhile, Mallorca is struggling this season. They are in 17th place, just ahead of the relegation zone, with 1 win, 5 draws, and 4 losses in the league.
Meanwhile, Lee Kang-in had a difficult time at PSG before today’s game. He joined PSG with high expectations, but suffered a hamstring injury in his unofficial debut match against Le Havre. After not having much chemistry with his teammates during pre-season, he started in the Ligue 1 opener against Lorient.
However, coach Luis Enrique used Lee Kang-in as a side striker rather than a midfielder. It was a level higher than when he was in Mallorca. In the end, Lee Kang-in did not have as much influence as he did last season.
In addition, he collapsed due to a left quadriceps injury after the 2nd round match against Toulouse. Thanks to this, he was unable to participate in the September A match and devoted himself to rehabilitation. And after recovering in mid-September, he played a bit in the UCL Dortmund game.
However, there was an immediate call to the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games national team. Lee Kang-in, who joined the national team late, did not record any attack points during the tournament, but contributed to the victory. He became the target of the opponent’s concentration and created space for his teammates. The Asian Games national team eventually won the gold medal by defeating their archrival Japan 2-1 in the final. Lee Kang-in had the double blessing of resolving his military service issue by winning the competition.
Afterwards, Lee Kang-in did not return to France and played the A match in October. And on the 13th, he scored his A match debut goal against Tunisia. It was a fantastic left-footed free kick that broke through Korea’s frustration. He then scored an additional goal, leading Korea to a 4-0 victory.토스카지노
His performance continued in the Vietnam match held on the 17th. He helped Kim Min-jae score a header with a sharp kick from a corner kick situation in the 5th minute of the first half. Then, in the second half, he received Son Heung-min’s pass and scored Vietnam’s goal with an accurate left-footed shot. South Korea defeated Vietnam 6-0 thanks to Lee Kang-in’s performance.
