Yesterday (12th), Son Heung-min broke the news of the goal, and Lee Kang-in and Hwang Hee-chan also opened the scoring for the first time in a long time. Ahead of joining the national team under new head coach Klinsmann, expectations have been raised.

I'm a reporter.


Lee Kang-in didn't miss the one chance that came his way against Real Sociedad.

Trailing 1-0 five minutes into the second half, a teammate dropped the ball with his head, won the contest, and then shook the net with his right foot, past the goalkeeper.

When he got the ball, he had a 5 per cent chance of scoring, but he calmly eluded the goalkeeper to increase his chances to 33 per cent and finished lightly.

Lee Kang-in roared mightily in front of the home fans, celebrating his third league goal in five months.

Lee Kang-in's sharp cross with his right foot rather than his usual left foot and his active involvement in defence helped Mallorca escape a second successive defeat, and Lee Kang-in was the highest-rated player.

Wolverhampton's Hwang Hee-chan, who returned after a month from a hamstring injury, equalised one minute after coming on as a substitute.

After creating chances with his characteristic breakout, he finished off the ball with a left-footed shot that the opposing defence had cleared.

Breaking the regular league goal silence that has been going on since February last year, he registered his first league goal of the season.

From Son Heung-min to Lee Kang-in and Hwang Hee-chan, the European team's goalscoring prowess has come alive and expectations for the national team are growing.

With most of the Qatar World Cup last-98 players on the Klinsmann roster to be called up next week, Oh Hyun-kyu, who was a "reserve member" at the time, is now a full member.
