    Lee Kang-in of Valencia CF in Spain's La Liga became the youngest Korean ever to debut in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

    At just 18 years and six months of age, Lee broke the record set last season by Jeong Woo-yeong of SC Freiburg at 19 years and two months old, who was then playing for Bayern München.

    In Valencia's match against Chelsea, Lee took the pitch as a substitute in the 90th minute with his team leading 1-0, and played for five minutes. Valencia maintained its 1-0 lead to win the match.
