The main character is ‘Kang In-Mar’… In the scorching heat, “Lee Kang-In!” Busan resounded

The temperature was over 35 degrees. Lee Kang-in and Neymar were the stars of the show at Busan Asiad Stadium at 5 p.m., when the sun was still hot.

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) won 3-0 in the third match of the Coupang Play Series against K League 1 side Jeonbuk Hyundai today (March 3), with 43,000 fans in attendance.

Lee, who has yet to fully shake off his thigh injury, started the game from the bench – not as a starter, but as a substitute.

The fans erupted in cheers as Lee’s and Neymar’s faces alternated on the scoreboard, with Lee smiling embarrassedly.

Neymar, who returned to the starting lineup for the first time in six months after suffering an ankle injury in February, brought the fans to their feet with a spectacular individual effort. In response, he came out to take a corner kick and waved to the crowd.

It was Neymar who scored the first goal. In the 40th minute, he drove the ball into the penalty box and struck an unstoppable right-footed shot that beat the Jeonbuk defense and the post in quick succession before sliding into the net.

Neymar expressed his joy with a signature tongue-in-cheek gesture, and Lee Kang-in, reflected on the scoreboard, smiled and applauded.

It wasn’t until the 13th minute of the second half that Lee made his move from the bench. As he began to warm up on the outside, the crowd erupted, and when he entered the field as a central midfielder in the 24th minute, a huge roar went up. It was the first appearance of the ‘Kang-In-Mar’ combination that fans had been waiting for.

Although they didn’t share a goal in their first game together, Neymar’s 38th minute goal was the first to be celebrated by Lee Kang-in, who gave him a quick hug.

Lee didn’t get many touches on the ball, but he was light on his feet. In the 29th minute of the second half, he focused on linking up with his teammates, picking up the ball in the midfield and connecting passes after dribbling through.

With Neymar playing full time, Asensio’s 43rd minute goal gave PSG a perfect 3-0 win to end their Asian tour.

In his post-match interview, Lee said, “It was a great memory to come to Korea and play,” adding that “the players were happy to be here.”

“As a Korean player, I will prove that Korean soccer has improved a lot and there are many good players,” he said.토토사이트
