Lee Kang-in (left), who came on as a substitute in the 23rd minute, was the first to congratulate Neymar on his multi-goal performance. PSG went on to win 3-0 behind Neymar's two-goal, one-assist performance.
38th minute, second half. Paris Saint-Germain's (PSG) Neymar darted into the space behind the defense. After receiving a pass from teammate Fabian Luis and finding himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper, Neymar scored his second goal of the night with a calm right-footed shot. The first teammate to approach Neymar during his goal celebration was Lee Kang-in, the 'Shot Stone'. The two players high-fived and hugged, and the crowd erupted in cheers.
Neymar had a one-man show with two goals and an assist in a 3-0 friendly win over South Korean professional soccer's K League 1 side Jeonbuk on Wednesday at the Asiad Stadium in Busan. PSG, which is on an Asian tour ahead of the start of the new French Ligue 1 season, traveled to South Korea the day before from Japan.
The three games were for Neymar. Neymar's season was cut short by a right ankle injury sustained during a Ligue 1 match in February, marking his six-month comeback. PSG coach Luis Enrique, who had said in a press conference the day before that "we will decide tomorrow if he will play or not," started Neymar and gave him the full game.
Playing on the left flank, Neymar opened the scoring in the 40th minute after using his trademark footwork to beat a defender. Neymar added an assist on Marco Asensio's wedge goal to make it 3-0 in the 43rd minute, giving him three offensive points on the day.
Lee took the field in the 23rd minute as a substitute. Lee did not play in the three matches of the Asia Tour in Japan due to a thigh injury. It was Lee's first visit to South Korea since joining PSG last month, and he was likely playing as a fan service. The crowd erupted in applause and cheers as he began to warm up on the bench. Lee played a brief 20 minutes in front of the Korean fans. Playing mainly in the center of the attacking line, Lee made a few crisp passes but seemed to focus on maintaining his game rather than sprinting. "I don't have any pain, but I'm recovering and managing (the injury) as it could recur," Lee said after the game.
PSG, who are set to kick off their French Ligue 1 campaign on December 12, left the country immediately after the match. PSG players wore special jerseys created in collaboration with BIGBANG member G-Dragon's fashion brand Peace Minus One. 한국야동 On the back of the jerseys, the phrase "This is Busan" was written in French. There were 43,520 fans at the stadium.
