In the ASIAD 18 squad, there are many players from the Korean women’s football team who are familiar with the continent. Ji So-yeon, 27 age years old, is playing for Chelsea women’s football club. This girl keeps a record when preparing for the 4th time to attend ASIAD since 2006 in Doha.
Recently, however, Korean fans have been “waking up” with the appearance of a beautiful football player in the Asian Games. She is Lee Min-ah, 27, who is playing at the Japanese tournament in the Kobe Aikiku club shirt. Lee Min-ah plays as a midfielder for the Korean women’s team.
Lee Min-ah was born in 1991 in Daegu, South Korea. She is 1.58 m tall, weighs 47 kg. Lee used to wear Incheon Hyundai Steel club shirt before moving to neighboring countries to compete.
Starting from the East Asian Women’s Cup, Lee became famous not only because of her talent on the pitch but also because of her sunshine smile. In the qualifier that took place in 2016, the Korean team scored 36 goals, including four goals from the Daegu countryside girl. Lee played an important role in the team and won the tournament’s “Best Player” title.
Before that, Lee was a member of the Korean women’s U20 team. She has been featured in the 2010 FIFA World Cup squad for the U20 age group.
In addition, Lee looks as tender and youthful as a Korean schoolgirl, possessing ruddy skin with a gentle smile. This is far different from the aggressiveness and dynamism of a football match.
The 2018 Olympics was the last tournament with the participation of a “golden generation” with players who have been side by side for many years like Ji So-yeon, Shim Seo-yeon, Jeon Ga -eul and Lee Min-ah, when the girls have all reached their 30s.
