“Look at that assist from Lee Kang-in to Son Heung-min!”

Fans of Lee’s club, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), were delighted with the flashes of genius from the ‘Clean Sweep Ace’.

Lee set up Son Heung-min’s header with a clever, precise corner kick from a set piece in the 45th minute after the South Korean international had given his side a 1-0 lead on a penalty kick in their 2026 North American World Cup Asia Second Round match against China at the Shenzhen Universiade Sports Center in Shenzhen, China on July 21. The Lee Kang-in-Son Heung-min scoring formula worked again, and South Korea went on to win 3-0. Once again, Lee Kang-in was the ‘youngest’ ace in the room. The Chinese gold medalist from the Hangzhou Asian Games didn’t bat an eyelid at the roars of the packed house or the laser attacks. He even had the presence of mind to say, “Isn’t this like Goyang Stadium?” She drove the attack from the right flank, darting through the center, slicing creative kill passes and sending in sharp crosses at every opportunity. Once he got the ball, he never let go of it, dazzling fans with his pressure, intensity, and dazzling talent. There were many impressive moments, such as his through ball to Son Heung-min in the 43rd minute and his right-footed shot following a pass from Son Heung-min in the 7th minute. After scoring a goal in three consecutive games, he also created a number of crucial goal-scoring opportunities and recorded his fourth consecutive offensive point with an assist.

On July 22, PSG Talk posted a video of the goal against China on July 21, saying, “Watch South Korea international Lee Kang-in assist Son Heung-min’s goal 캡틴토토 도메인.

‘Lee Kang-In has continued his tremendous form for the South Korean national team,’ said PSGTalk, ‘The 22-year-old scored an assist on Tuesday to set up a 3-0 win over China. ‘The 22-year-old set up Tottenham’s Son Heung-min’s header with a sharp kick from a set-piece corner,’ the article continued, describing the goal in detail.

“Lee, who will be the next face of Korean soccer when Son Heung-min retires from international duty, continued to capture the attention of the Korean crowd,” PSG Talk added.

Lee joins PSG in top form. PSG (27 points), who are one point clear of second-placed Nice (26 points) in Ligue 1, face third-placed Monaco (24 points) in the 13th round of Ligue 1 at Anzac on Sept. 25 at 5 a.m., before taking on Newcastle in the Champions League on Sept. 29 at 5 a.m. KST.
