Lee Jae-Sung of to a flyer

Lee Jae-Sung has maybe not even unpacked his suitcase in his new home in Germany but that did not stop him from having an impressive debut last night. 

Where did Lee Jae-Sung make his debut?

The Korean made his debut for Holstein Kiel against Hamburger SV on Friday night. This was some debut to make as Hamburger SV were playing their first ever match outside of the German top flight after relegation last season. 

His opponents had two Japanese players in their starting 11 also in Gotoku Sakai and Tatsuya Ito. Along with this, they had a raft of players who had played in the German top flight. 

Nothing fazed Lee however as he put in a great performance and even got himself two assists. Even more impressive than this it was also a derby as matches between Holstein Kiel against Hamburger SV are known as the Northern Derby. 

It was, in fact, the first time the two clubs had met each other in 20,278 days with their last league meeting coming on the 27th January 1963 with that game ending 1-1.

What was the score and how did Lee Jae-Sung play?

It was a great match for the Korean's new club as they run out 3-0 winners against a strong Hamburger SV side playing in front of a home crowd of 57,000. 

The huge crowd might have been part of a reason for a nervy start from both teams with the score at halftime 0-0. However, in the second half, the away side Holstein Kiel stepped it up and won the game 3-0. 

Lee Jae-Sung then looked controlled throughout the match and on top of this found himself assisting two of the three goals. With the final goal came in the last minute of the game after Lee Jae-Sung had been replaced. 

The first assist was a pass that was played on to Jonas Meffert who put the ball into the top corner from 18 yards. Admittedly with that being the first assist from Lee the goal was all made by the German with his great finish.

While the second of the game came in the 78th minute when Lee Jae-Sung found himself clear on goal and unselfishly played it across the box to his teammate David Kinsombi who slotted the ball home.
