The South Korean Asian Games national team, led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong, will face Japan in the final of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games at Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, China, at 9 p.m. on the 7th (Korea Standard Time).
South Korea, which advanced to the round of 16 by winning all three group matches, defeated Kyrgyzstan, China, and Uzbekistan one after another and settled in the final. With only one game left until the gold medal, the last opponent is “enemy” Japan.
Lee Kang-in, who joined late due to his team PSG’s 2023-2024 UEFA Champions League schedule, is also meaningful to him. 카지노사이트 순위
Earlier on the 6th, Forbes, a famous business magazine, said, “Lee Kang-in will face off against a striker who plays at Tsukuba University in Japan this week. This game is the most important game in Lee Kang-in’s career, he stressed its importance.
Many French media and Forbes made this assessment because the meaning of the Asian Games gold medal is different for Korean athletes. If you win a gold medal in this competition, you will be given a military service exemption. In fact, the seniors of the national team, who won gold medals through the 2014 and 2018 Asian Games, continued their smooth lives in Europe as the military service issue was resolved. Representatively, Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae are like that.
I asked the players directly about the meaning of the match between Korea and Japan. Seol Young-woo, who I met on the 6th, said, “No matter how much I think about it, I think there are too many reasons to win, and I am preparing well with confidence that I can win unconditionally. I will definitely go with the gold medal around my neck,” he said. “I think there are many reasons, but the opponent is Japan.” That alone seems to be a good reason for us to win unconditionally,” he said.
All the recent matches between Korea and Japan for Lee Kang-in were “nightmares.” Lee Kang-in participated in a friendly match between Korea and Japan in Yokohama in March 2021, but he was completely defeated 0-3 and lost again to Japan, which faced each other in the quarterfinals of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup in Uzbekistan in June last year.
Let’s wait and see whether Lee Kang-in, who has changed the blade of revenge, will be able to beat Japan in this game to enjoy military service benefits and gold medals.
