Mainz won 5-1 in a practice match against Lucerne (Switzerland) held in Marbella, Spain on the 11th (Korean time). Lee Jae-seong was substituted at the start of the second half and scored the team’s fourth goal. He rushed in from a cross from the right flank and pushed it into the header.
Lee Jae-sung, who participated in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, played the tournament with ankle pain. He started in two group matches and the round of 16, excluding the match against Ghana, and helped Korea advance to the round of 16 for the first time in 12 years. He didn’t have an attacking point, but he led the attacking line with his wide movement and sharp passing.
After the World Cup, he focused on recovering from injuries in Korea. He left for Germany on the 1st, the latest among European players. At the time, Lee Jae-seong said, “I took enough rest and my ankle is fine. If I train too much, it may not get better, but I will manage it well and finish the second half.”
