The Asian Games national soccer team, led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong (55), won the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games Men’s Football Final, held at Huanglong Sports Center Stadium in Hangzhou, China, from 9 p.m. on the 7th. Korean soccer has won three consecutive Asian Games titles.
In the second minute of the first half, Uchino scored the first goal with a right-footed shot. Jung Woo-young, who received Hwang Jae-won’s cross in the 27th minute of the first half, scored the equalizer with a header. 스포츠토토
In a tight match, Cho Young-wook scored the winning goal. In the 11th minute of the second half, Jung Woo-young spilled the ball given by Hwang Jae-won and Cho Young-wook pushed it in. South Korea, who endured the rest of the time well, won the gold medal.
With the Asian Games gold medal, 19 players who have not completed military service, including Lee Kang-in, will enjoy military service exemption. In particular, military service exemption benefits are more important to Jung Woo-young, Lee Kang-in, and Hong Hyun-seok, who are active in the European stage. In other words, there is a foothold for more experience while continuing to play in Europe without a career break. Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae, and Hwang Ui-jo also won the gold medal at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, which was a decisive help to their careers.
After the game, Lee Kang-in said about the exemption from military service, “It seems right that the military service benefits are more convenient, especially for players who play overseas. “I accept it of course because all Korean men have to go, and I don’t think there’s anything special about it,” he said.
PSG also congratulated Lee Kang-in. When Lee Kang-in posted a photo of the gold medal on SNS, the official account of PSG pressed hearts. PSG teammates such as Achraf Hakimi, Keylor Navas, Gonzalo Ramos, Nordi Mukiele, and Marco Verratti also sent congratulatory messages to Lee Kang-in’s SNS with gold medals and clapping.
PSG’s top star Kylian Mbappe also congratulated Lee Kang-in with a spark mark and clapping his hands. Lee Kang-in, who won the gold medal and solved the military service problem, has no time to rest yet.
The national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will face Tunisia at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on October 13 and play Vietnam at the Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 17th. Coach Klinsmann again called up all overseas players, including captain Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in. Lee Kang-in is expected to return to Korea and join the national team on the 9th.
