Lee Kang-in, 22, has been named to the South Korean Asian Games soccer team led by coach Hwang Sun-hong. However, he has been left off the roster for his club Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) home game.

PSG released the names of 20 players on Friday for the Ligue 1 fifth-round match against OGC Nice at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France, at 4 a.m. KST on Nov. 16.

In addition to ace Kylian Mbappe, Ashraf Hakimi, Manuel Ugarte, Marquinhos, Randal Kolo Mouani, Milan Skriniar and Vitinha are among those who will be available for the match. Even Mbappe’s younger brother Ethan is included.온라인카지노

However, Lee Kang-in’s name was not on the list. Lee started the Ligue 1 second leg against Toulouse on March 20. However, he left the field in the sixth minute of the second half after being replaced by Kylian Mbappe. He then suffered a left quadriceps injury that sidelined him for nearly a month before the A-League break.

Lee returned to team training on the 12th after a last-minute rehabilitation. As a result, he was expected to play against Nice. However, PSG coach Luis Enrique decided not to push him too hard.

In fact, the news of Lee’s absence had already been leaked by Asian Games coach Hwang Sun-hong. “We’ll know when he plays,” Hwang said of Lee’s current form, “but I heard he won’t play against Nice. He has recovered from his injury, but it seems to be a fitness issue.”

The question of Lee Kang-in joining Hwang Sun-hong continued to arise. As the Asian Games is not a FIFA-organized tournament, teams are not required to release players, so Lee had to get permission from his club, PSG, to join the team.

“We are pleased to announce that it was finally agreed on Thursday night that Lee Kang-in will join the Asian Games team after PSG’s home match against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League on Nov. 19, local time in France,” the federation said.

Hwang has put the final piece of the puzzle in place for his team to win a third consecutive Asian Games title in Incheon and Jakarta-Palembang. With the gold medal, Lee will have the opportunity to receive military service benefits. PSG will also be able to factor Lee into any future transfer fee if he clears his military service.

Lee will most likely play against Dortmund on October 20. Lee is expected to travel to Hangzhou, China, for the Asian Games immediately after the Dortmund game.

If Lee makes it on board the Hwangseon Hong, he will be available for the second group game against Thailand on the 21st. However, he will most likely play in the final group game against Bahrain on the 24th.
