By Ahn Young Joon Reporter = Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) Neymar, who missed all three matches of the club’s tour of Japan, played the full game and scored multiple goals against Jeonbuk Hyundai in South Korea, much to the discomfort of the Japanese media.
PSG won 3-0 in a friendly against Jeonbuk in the third leg of the Coupang Play Series at the Asiad Stadium in Busan on March 3. ‘Superstar’ Neymar scored a brace in full-time and Marco Asensio added a late consolation goal.
Korean fans were delighted with the performance and goals of world-class player Neymar, as well as Lee Kang-in in a PSG jersey.카지노
Japanese media, on the other hand, were grumpy. PSG had played three games in Japan against Al-Nasr (Saudi Arabia), Cerezo Osaka (Japan), and Inter Milan (Italy) before the trip, and Neymar hadn’t played a second.
Japanese media outlet Football Channel reported on Thursday that “Neymar was the star of the show in the absence of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe. However, Neymar did not play in Japan, citing an ankle injury.”
“The Japanese fans even made ‘Neymar calls’ hoping that he would play, but he left Japan without playing a single game. But in Korea, he started and even scored a goal that shook the stadium,” he said.
“I understand that there were injuries, but it’s a shame to see Neymar like this (playing only in Korea),” he said.
