I’m not the one to interview the youngest Lee Kang-in. Modesty
Lee Kang-in, who scored multiple goals, showed humility even in his active performance.
Lee Kang-in played as a substitute for Romania in the second leg of the men’s soccer group B at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics held at Kashima Stadium on Saturday. In the 33rd minute of the second half, Hwang Ui-jo replaced him as a front-line striker, scoring multiple goals in a short time to lead his team to a 4-0 victory.
In the 39th minute of the second half, when Lee was leading 2-0, Seol Young-woo stole the ball from the front of the opponent’s box and calmly shot a left-footed shot to widen the gap 3-0. In the 45th minute of the second half, Kang Yoon-sung’s pass was followed by a sharp left-footed shot that deceived the goalkeeper to make 4-0.
Lee Kang-in, who started the game against New Zealand in the first round, created a chance, but he directly solved the disappointment of losing with a multi-goal in the second round, leading to a reversal of the atmosphere. Lee Kang-in, who had an interview after losing the first round, had an interview with the broadcaster after winning the second round.
But Lee Kang-in showed humility. “I’m not the one to interview,” he told a national team official just before the interview. I just said… Lee Kang-in must have felt that the older members who played for a short time and played for a longer time were bigger, and the older members played hard from the beginning and gave him a lot of energy on the bench, which resulted in good results. “I’m grateful to my brothers and I’ll prepare better for the match against Honduras.”
“Honestly, I didn’t do anything,” Lee Kang-in said about scoring multiple goals. They made everything for me. I just put my foot on it. “Thank you for your hard work from the beginning,” he showed humility.
Lee Kang-in, who has the image of the “youngest brother,” showed humility in praising his older brothers for their dedication in difficult situations. He, who scored two goals thanks to his brothers’ help, will once again challenge his brothers to score and advance to the quarterfinals in the final match against Honduras on the 28th.
