Lee Kang-in (21, Mallorca) is continuing his overwhelming performance ahead of the transfer market this summer. He swept everything and even achieved the first Korean multi-goal record.
Mallorca met Getafe in the 30th round of the ‘2022-23 season Spanish Primera Liga’ held at the home stadium Visit Mallorca Estadio on the 24th (Korean time). Head coach Javier Aguirre took out a combination of Lee Kang-in and Muriki on a five-back basis and aimed at the net.
Getafe also responded with a five-back. Mallorca was home, but Getafe performed better. He did not miss the flow and in the 22nd minute of the first half, Mayoral shook the net with a sensational shot that exceeded the goalkeeper’s key.
Mallorca, who conceded at home, diligently increased the attack tempo. With Lee Kang-in at the center, Muriki and Ndiaye were in charge of counterattacking at the forefront. In the set piece, Lee Kang-in’s left foot aimed for an equalizer, but Getafe was not easily shaken. 토토사이트
Mallorca did their best to rebound in the second half. Jaume Costa was put in to reinforce the flanking attack. An equalizer was scored in the 11th minute of the second half, and the main character was Lee Kang-in. When Morales’ shot bounced off the goalkeeper’s save, he calmly pushed it.
Mallorca’s attack was energized by Lee Kang-in’s equalizer. In the 19th minute of the second half, Lailo scored an additional goal with a header, breaking the tight balance. It was Getafe who was now desperate, and Mallorca tried to keep the lead with substitutions.
In the extra time of the second half, the ‘Lee Kang-in Show’ was held. He responded to the Getafe attack with a counterattack, but Lee Kang-in drove the ball from under the center circle and ran. After running for about 70m, he finished with his left foot and scored a fantastic wedge goal.
It was Mallorca’s 3-1 comeback victory. On this day, Lee Kang-in scored his first goal in the pro league and became the first Korean to score multiple goals in the Primera Liga. After the game, he was selected as the official Man of the Match (MOM) in the Primera Liga, and received 8.6 points, the highest score among both teams, according to ‘WhoScored.com’, a soccer statistics company.
As much as I swept everything, I was connected to many teams in the transfer market this summer. In Spain, the farewell to Mallorca was considered a fait accompli and announced, “Let’s enjoy Lee Kang-in’s remaining matches.” Currently, there are transfer rumors with Premier League teams such as Aston Villa and Burnley.
