South Korea is coming from a 2-1 win against Syria last week. Coach Paulo Bento said that the game against Iran is not as vital as the other games they already played. Also, they will treat it as another game and not a decisive one.
However, Bento said that it would be a different game than the previous group matches. He said that Iran has international experience, better technical skills, and physical plays. Therefore, it will be a challenging game for South Korea and Iran as well.
Iran will have Zenit Saint Peterburg’s Sardar Azmoun, Feyenoord’s Alireza Jahanbakhsh, and FC Porto’s Mehdi Taremi. South Korea’s defense will be busy during the game. Also, they are playing in a hostile stadium for the time in the group stages.
