An attack point that had not been released for a long time came out on his birthday. Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca, photo) added help with his ‘golden left foot’ and celebrated the team’s victory and birthday.
Lee Kang-in contributed to the team’s 4-2 victory by assisting Dani Rodriguez’s winning goal in the 11th minute of the second half in the 2022-2023 Spanish Primera Liga round 22 match against Villarreal held at Visit Mallorca Estadi in Mallorca, Spain on the 19th. Mallorca, who had 31 points, had the same points as Villarreal, but jumped to 8th place ahead of the winner. Lee Kang-in’s regular league attack points this season increased to 6 (2 goals, 4 assists).
The 19th, Korean time, was Lee Kang-in’s birthday. After Lee Kang-in scored a goal in an away game against his home team Valencia in October last year, he failed to add an attack point for four months. In the meantime, he was selected for the Korean national soccer team and performed well at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but after the World Cup, rumors of transfers with English Premier League (EPL) teams such as Aston Villa and Newcastle United ended up being in vain, and he lost his rhythm and faltered.
Kangin Lee, who celebrated his birthday, showed a lot of activity from the beginning of the game and took a different movement than before. In the 10th minute of the first half, he headed Antonio Rayo with a free kick cross from the left flank. In the 45th minute of the first half, he was surrounded by two defenders in the left corner, but he made a gap with his exquisite skills and crossed. 메이저놀이터
