Who is the Vietnam No. 17 who demanded Lee Kang-in’s jersey: ‘Own goal’?

Who was the lucky Vietnamese player to take home the jersey of ‘genius’ Lee Kang-in (22, PSG)?

Jürgen Klinsmann’s men’s national team cruised to a 6-0 victory over FIFA No. 95 Vietnam at the Suwon World Cup Stadium on Sunday, with Kim Min-jae scoring the opening goal and Hwang Hee-chan, Son Heung-min, Lee Kang-in, and Jung Woo-young adding more. It was South Korea’s third consecutive win in A-Match play after picking up two wins at home in October.

Lee Kang-in sent in a cross for Kim Min-jae’s header off a corner kick in the fifth minute. Kim made no mistake with his head to score the first goal. Lee Kang-in, who was a multi-goal hero against Tunisia, also found the back of the net this time. In the 25th minute of the second half, with South Korea up 4-0, Lee converted a pass from Son Heung-min. Lee finished with three goals and one assist in the two games.

After the game, Lee said, “I’m very happy to win and thank my teammates for playing hard. In every game, I always try and challenge myself to get a goal and an assist, even if I’m not a goalie. But the most important thing is the team victory. So I’m happy,” he smiled.

Despite losing by a whopping six goals, the Vietnamese players asked the Korean stars to exchange jerseys and sign autographs. “Player No. 17 asked for my jersey,” Lee laughed.

As it turns out, Vietnam’s No. 17 was Vietnamese left back Bo Minh Trong (22). He was the same age as Lee Kang-in and had a similar height of 170 centimeters. Although he had gone through an elite program in Vietnam, he looked up to Lee Kang-in, who was the same age and already playing in big clubs around the world.

Coincidentally, Bo Minh Trong scored an own goal in the fifth minute of the second half when he tried to block Son Heung-min’s cross to Cho Kyu-sung. Throughout the match, Vietnam struggled against Korea’s physicality and speed. 토토사이트

Vietnam head coach Philippe Trousier said: “Tactically and physically, we were a challenge for Korea. I am not surprised by the 6-0 defeat as Korea is a very good team. Our players fought well and gave their best against a world-class team,” he said, encouraging his players.
