‘UCL transfer assist of the week’ Lee Kang-in to board Hwang Sun-Hong on 11th

Lee Kang-in (23-PSG) has been honored as the ‘Assist of the Week’ in the UEFA Champions League, the ‘stage of the stars’, and will be looking forward to being named in Hwang Sun-hong’s national team squad when it is announced on November 11.

On Monday (Aug. 8), UEFA announced on its website and social media the best ‘Assists of the Week’ from this week’s eight UEFA Champions League 2023-2024 round of 16 second-leg ties. In total, four assists were selected, including Lee Kang-in’s first UCL assist of the season, which came in the second half of Real Sociedad’s 2-1 victory over Real Madrid in San Sebastian, Spain, on June 6, when he set up Kylian Mbappe’s goal.

Lee missed the first leg of the round of 16 tie against Real Sociedad, but came on as a substitute at the start of the second leg and set up Kylian Mbappe’s game-winner 11 minutes into the second half for a 1-0 lead. Lee picked up the ball midway through PSG’s half and broke down the Real Sociedad defense with an exquisite left-footed assist to earn his first 토토사이트 추천 UCL assist and first offensive point since returning from the Asian Cup in Qatar.

Assisted by Lee Kang-in, who dropped into space behind the defense, Mbappe dribbled down Real Sociedad’s left side and finished with a neat right-footed shot to the near post to give PSG a 2-1 win. Mbappe’s goal was also nominated for UCL Goal of the Week.

Lee continued his UCL career last October against AC Milan (Italy), scoring his first goal since joining PSG, his first Champions League goal, and providing the first assist. Since joining PSG from Real Mallorca in Spain this season, Lee has scored three goals and provided three assists in 20 appearances across all competitions.

Joining Lee in the Assist of the Week honors were Jude Bellingham (Real Madrid), Ori Oskarsson (Copenhagen), and Mateusz De Ligt (Bayern Munich), who assisted on Vinicius’ goal. Lee will look to pick up his seventh attacking point of the season on October 10 at home against Reims in the 25th round of the French Ligue 1 at 9pm.

And on Nov. 11, the Korean national team under interim coach Hwang Sun-hong will find out if they will qualify. Hwang, who was named interim coach for two March A matches after Jürgen Klinsmann was sacked following the 2023 Asian Cup in Qatar, will announce his squad for the two matches against Thailand in the second round of the 2026 North American Football Confederation (NAFTA) World Cup on Nov. 21 and 26 at 11 a.m. at the Football Hall.

The main focus will be on whether Lee Kang-in will be included. Lee, who got into a physical altercation with captain Son Heung-min before the quarterfinal against Jordan at the Asian Cup in Qatar, has since apologized in person to Son in London, but has yet to escape criticism from fans. There are those who say he should be left out of the squad and those who say he should be given a chance to show a new side of himself on the field now that he has apologized.

According to a poll conducted by Real Meter, a polling agency commissioned by the Energy Economic Daily, which surveyed 526 men and women aged 18 and over nationwide on whether Lee should be included in the national team, 46.9 percent of respondents said, “He should be included in the national team based on his weight and skills,” while 40.7 percent said, “He should not be included in the national team because soccer is about organization and cooperation. 12.5% of respondents said they were not sure.

What will Hwang Sun-hong’s choice be?
