Paris Saint-Germain coach Luis Enrique’s praise was not a lie. Lee Kang-in recorded an exquisite assist to quell local public opinion in France, which was biting and biting him excessively. He raised his help as if to look at the point of attack when it was absolutely necessary.
Paris Saint-Germain played the 17th round of the French Ligue 1 in the 2023-24 season against FC Mes at Parc des Princes, its home stadium, on the 21st (Korea time). Paris Saint-Germain won 3-1 as Lee Kang-in helped his team score the first goal.랭크카지노
Paris Saint-Germain, which had 12 wins, 4 draws, 1 loss, and 37 points with the victory, successfully finished the first half of the year at the top. Paris Saint-Germain, which missed the away game against LOSC Lille by allowing an equalizer just before the end, was meaningful in that it won again against Messe in the middle and lower ranks.
Lee Kang-in started without fail. Coach Enrique, who showed trust in Lee Kang-in ahead of the game, placed Lee Kang-in in the left midfielder against Meath. According to the 3-4-2-1 formation, Kylian Mbappe was at the forefront, while Bredley Barcola and Randall Colo Moani were placed under one space.
In the case of the midfield where Lee Kang-in took the left side, Manuel Ugarte, Vitinha and Warren Zeir-Emeri were composed. Marquinos, Danilu Pereira and Milan Shkriniar were the last three backs, and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma returned after disciplinary action.
Lee Kang-in showed his strengths. Paris Saint-Germain clearly showed the difference in power from the beginning. He recorded his first shot nine minutes after the kickoff. Lee Kang-in participated in the shooting attempt. He passed to Barcola correctly and developed a cross attack. This opened the door for Vitinha with a mid-range shot.
Lee Kang-in’s penetration pass also shone. In the 13th minute of the first half, Lee Kang-in, who intercepted the ball through pressure from the opponent near the halfway line, had an eye contact with Mbappe, who penetrated the gate. Lee Kang-in stabbed the through pass with his left foot without delay. Mbappe took it and claimed a penalty kick, but offside was declared. Even if the attack was canceled, Lee Kang-in caught the eye with a pass that connected him from the center line to the front of the opponent’s goal at once.
Lee Kang-in also played devotedly in defense. In the 18th minute of the first half, he raised the line and pressed it to intercept the defender’s pass. Paris Saint-Germain was able to counterattack Lee Kang-in’s defensive success immediately. However, Lee Kang-in, who has a significant number of points, began to cross directly.
Lee Kang-in’s pass, Mbappe’s rush to the goal gate, and Muani’s shooting created several chances, but Paris Saint-Germain finished the first half without a goal. The team also lacked efficiency enough to shoot just one shot on goal.
Enrique began to use Lee Kang-in more aggressively. Lee, who changed his position to right wing forward in the second half, made a special assistance to open Messe’s goal just five minutes into the second half. He assisted Vitinha’s header goal with a cross that exquisitely bent his left foot toward the goal ahead of the opponent’s defense.
This is the season’s second assistance that he has been waiting for. Lee Kang-in helped at the match against Brest in late October and accumulated assist again in about two months. Lee Kang-in raged from October to November. He scored his debut goal at the Paris Saint-Germain match against AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League, before helping at the match against Brest, and scoring his first goal at the Ligue 1 match against Montpellier. He has displayed robust performance by scoring attack points in three consecutive matches, but has remained somewhat subdued since then.
Hence, he had to face considerable criticism. The French media are continuing to criticize Lee Kang-in every single day. He has been showing his true face since he failed to produce an offensive point despite consistently playing as a starter recently. Since the match against Borussia Dortmund of Germany in the final Group E match of the UEFA Champions League held last week, Lee has displayed considerable number of attacks on him.
He is pouring out the lowest ratings ever. After the match against Dortmund, “Lee started as a midfielder of Paris Saint-Germain. It was an opportunity to display offensive capability and technological dominance with the ball. However, Lee continued to display inaccurate passes. It was his performance in the opposite direction, which did not affect his defense. He missed an inevitable opportunity at Muani’s cross.” They gave a low evaluation of three points.
Even French soccer commentator Pierre Menes emotionally criticized him, saying, “He has no personality. He doesn’t have the forward pass skills we expected.” Menes worked for influential French newspapers L’Equipe and television station Canal Plus.
