As the international break draws near, squad lists are gradually being revealed. For South Korea, it comes as no surprise that Kang-In Lee has been called up for the World Cup 2026 qualifiers in the Asian zone.

The South Korean talent from PSG joins his national team during the upcoming international break. Paris Saint-Germain will see many of its players join their respective national teams in March for the upcoming international break. Whether it's for World Cup qualifiers or friendly matches, the challenges are diverse for each player.

In the case of PSG's number 19, Kang-In Lee, he will be looking to secure his place in the 2026 World Cup with South Korea. Without surprise, the player who joined the capital club in the summer of 2023 has been called up by Hwang Sun-Hong, the interim coach after Jurgen Klinsmann's dismissal following the last Asian Cup, where South Korea fell in the semifinals against Jordan.

In the coming weeks, the South Koreans will face Thailand in home and away matches, two important encounters for the 3rd and 4th rounds of qualifiers.

Following this, Kang-In Lee and the other internationals will return to PSG's training ground and prepare, among other things, for the Champions League quarter-finals.
