Match report

Iran's Masoud Soleimani Shojaei (R) scores a goal past South Korea's goalkeeper Jung Sung-ryong
Pictures from the match
Iran secured yet another impressive friendly win this evening, beating South Korea 1-0 in Seoul courtesy of a Masoud Shojaei goal.

The Osasuna midfielder struck in the 35th minute of the match, capitalizing on an error in the centre of the park by veteran Lee Young-Pyo, before finishing the counter-attack with a deft dink over the goalkeeper.

For Iran head coach Afshin Ghotbi it completes a productive few days in which his side also beat China away from home (2-0) as they continue their preparation for the Asian Cup in January.

Team Meli were comfortable defending their lead throughout the second half, using their physical advantage in midfield well and outmuscling the Koreans on the ball.

They should have taken the lead just moments into the second half when Kim Jung-Woo was guilty of gifting away possession in his own half but Karim Ansarifard's weak shot found the legs of goalkeeper Jung Sung-Ryong.

AS Monaco Park Chu-Young was guilty of missing Korea's best chance of the match when he was denied from point-blank range by Mehdi Rahmati.

A final opportunity fell to Kim Do-Heon in injury time but he half-volleyed his ball well wide of goal when presented with time to measure his half-volley, Iran holding on for the win.
