Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) concluded its tour of South Korea with a hard-fought victory in sweltering conditions.
Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) hosted Jeonbuk Hyundai at the Busan Asiad Stadium on Wednesday at 5 p.m. for a pre-season friendly match of the Coupang Play Series, winning 3-0.
Before traveling to Korea, PSG toured Japan, where they faced Al Nasr, Cerezo Osaka, and Inter Milan. The match against Inter Milan took place in Tokyo, Japan, on the 1st, and the PSG players touched down in Korea on the 2nd, the day after the match, at Gimhae International Airport.
From there, it was non-stop action for PSG. From the airport at 2:20 p.m., the team provided fans with fan service before heading straight to the hotel, where they met and interacted with numerous fans. Then, at 6:30 p.m. the same day, the team traveled to Busan Asiad Stadium for an open training session in the sweltering heat.
On the third day of the match, it was hot in Busan. The fans were eager to welcome PSG and Lee Kang-in, but the heat was so intense that at 12:48 p.m., a disaster message went out saying, “The heat wave continues with a temperature of 35 degrees or more, please refrain from outdoor activities during the day and take care of your health by drinking plenty of water and resting.”
But the scorching heat didn’t dampen PSG’s professionalism. As PSG players entered the stadium to play Jeonbuk, they waved to the Korean fans who greeted them.
Neymar was a fan favorite. In the three games in Japan, Neymar played zero minutes. After not playing in any of those games, he started this one and was on fire, scoring in the first 40 minutes.
Neymar, who was expected to be subbed off in the second half, defied expectations and played the full game, scoring a goal and adding an assist in the process.온라인바카라
It’s a shame it didn’t end there. PSG brought on Lee Kang-In as a substitute in the 24th minute to give Neymar a chance to play alongside him.
The two athletes, who have shown a strong friendship since Japan, signed together and then clapped their hands in unison.
Meanwhile, PSG skipped the press conference immediately after the match and headed to Gimhae Airport to depart for Paris, France. PSG, who made an epic comeback in the scorching heat of Korea, left the Korean fans with a lasting memory.
