The Hangzhou Asian Games national soccer team, led by coach Hwang Seon-hong, defeated Thailand in the second game of the group stage and advanced to the round of 16.
Lee Kang-in will join the team training scheduled for this afternoon and begin working together.
Reporter Lee Jun-hee reports.
The national team was blocked by Thailand’s two-line defense in the early stages of the game and had difficulty penetrating into the back space.
The solution came from the side.
In the 15th minute of the first half, Go Young-jun connected with a low, quick cross after a long ball from the other side, and Hong Hyun-seok finished with a clean header.
The national team gained momentum and scored an additional goal in 5 minutes.
In a mixed situation at the gate, Jae-Jun Ahn scored the ball given away by Jae-Yong Park and hit the net with a powerful shot to score another goal.
Following the first game, the streak of goals continued.
Eom Won-sang scored the third goal with a 2-1 pass using his quick feet.
Even the defenders joined in the scoring streak.
Central defender Lee Jae-ik completed the free kick with a cannonball shot, widening the score gap.
The national team, which continued to play fierce attacking soccer, defeated Thailand 4-0, confirming its advancement to the round of 16 as first place in its group.

Meanwhile, Lee Kang-in, who joined Hwang Seon-hong, also went straight to the stadium and watched his teammates play, and is expected to make his debut as early as the third game against Bahrain.
