    Iran vs South Korea post match discussion and player ratings

    Weird game.. Iran honestly had the better chances besides a few horrible giveaways and defensive lapses. Still, 1-1 is an OK result considering we are top of the leaderboard right now

    Post your ratings below:

    Skocic: 4.5, to be honest, skocic left a lot to be desired in this game. There was no defensive structure nor was there any great attacking strategies. Got bailed out by brilliance from Azmoun and ARJ

    Beiranvand: 8, thought he had a good game. Good exits and couldn't do much on the goal he conceded. That save at the end thanks to horrible defending from Shoja and a poor giveaway from Moharrami saved us.

    Moharrami: 3, absolutely woeful all game. So many poor passes and turnovers and was caught sleeping on the Son Heung-Min goal. Giveaway in the last minute almost lost us the game.

    Shoja: 5, not his best day today. We knew he would have trouble against a more formidable defense and here it was.

    Kanaani: 6, better than Shoja lol

    Amiri: 6.5, hustled hard and played some good balls but couldn't really do much else

    Nourollahi: 6.5, played decent tbh, had a great through ball to Taremi and got passed a korean defender near the goal but we still cannot rely on him. His first touch and game in tight spaces is not great.

    Ezatolahi: 8.5, excellent game from Saeid! Controlled the midfield and had some great tackles, excellent technique and was unlucky not to score the goal that hit the crossbar. My MOTM

    Gholizadeh: 5.5, invisible

    ARJ: 7, first half he was pretty stiff and couldn't do much but man he is really on a good goal scoring form of late lol.. 3 goals in 4 team melli games.

    Taremi: 8, such a tank. We are so lucky to have him, we love you Mehdi! Was getting pretty much triple teamed and still found a way to lead us on attack and even on defense! His long shot was also unlucky to not go in...

    Azmoun: 7.5, good hustling and hold up play.. His assist to ARJ was a beauty! Reminded me of the Ghoddos
    assist to Azmoun against Vietnam in 2019 AC.

    SUBS:
    Noorafkan: 4.5, pretty poor defensively. Definitely his worst team melli game yet.
    The rest N/A

    Iran vs. Korea - Post-Match Discussion & Player Ratings

    Guys,

    given the huge chance in the last minute, I'm still happy with a draw.

    Pros:
    - even though for only a short period of time (maybe 15-20 minutes), we did create some serious chances and hit the post twice
    - we usually suck at being behind (look at our 0-3 loss vs. Japan), but the players showed a great mentality and got back to the game
    - we still lead the group with 2 points ahead of Korea and have the highest chances of qualifying (that's what we're here for) - when was the last time we got 10 points out of the first 4 games while leading the table?
    - I've seen games where Korea dominated us. Granted, we didn't dominate them either (like the 1-0 in Azadi 5 years ago), but it wasn't a performance to be ashamed of

    Cons:
    - I miss the days when our defense was a rock... PAG & Hosseini is the better duo in my opinion
    - we are not sharp enough at finishing (this is nothing specific to this game - just a general observation)
    - don't understand why Gholizadeh was subbed off that early
    - shame Ghoddos didn't get any minutes

    In total, looking at the bigger picture: we should be very happy with our results so far. Look at what we were worrying about back in June (just 4 months ago): most of us were ready of not even making it to the next round. Fast forward: we are in the final round, leading the group with 10 points and never had such high chances of qualifying for the WC before.

    Earlier before the game and after the lineups were out, I theorized that Scocic uses Jahanbaksh as a striker. I was proven right.

    Guys, look don't look at Jahanbaksh as a winger, don't look at his first touch, or corners (which annoy me like most of you).

    From now on, look at Jahanbaksh as a striker!

    As a striker, he got us 1 point and took 2 points away from S. Korea, so I have to rate him as an 8!

    3 goals in the third round. Leading goal scorer in AFC WCQ round 3!

    Four months ago, we were third in a group that contained Bahrain and Iraq with three must wins to even make it to the next round of qualifiers. We were about to watch the WC at home.

    Fast forward a few months, we won those 3 games and qualified to the next round and we now sit at the top of the final group - 8 points ahead of 3rd place, with our next two games against the two weakest teams - Syria and Lebanon.

    Some of you just don't appreciate anything - we are not preparing for the world cup right now, we are trying to qualify and we are doing a good job at it.

    Great game by Ezzat overall. A bit of confusion the first 20 min, but he was our best midfielder. If this guy just had a decent speed he could have played in world class level.

    Bc we were in a sh*t situation we should have never been in to begin with we should be happy we are in a less worse position???

    Come on…..you’re lying to yourself if you actually are trying to imply that WCQs don’t play a role in prepping you for a WC especially in a time where there are no friendlies and just competitive matches. This is where the team gets primed and takes shape/builds a foundation for the WC which is around the corner.

    I dont know why but for some reason I always thought moharami was solid, Do we have any other RB option? he played horrible today and was at fault for the goal.
    Other than his poor perfromance and obviously Nurollahis poor performance, everyone else played well. 2 posts and dominated after Korea scored.
    WE ARE THE UNDER DOGS

    If uae and iraq match end up with a draw, we are pretty much there with 2 wins vs Lebanon and draws in our remaining matches, or even losing to Korea.

    Beiranvand and Ezatolahi carried us this game. Taremi was good as well. Everyone else either didn't have a standout performance or had a poor performance, especially Moharrami who was abysmal.

    Did you have an issue with the way we played today? Some nit picky items related to the subs - I agree...but overall, we had more dangerous chances and should've came away with a win. This is the same Korea that beat Germany 2-0. The only difference is their left midfielder.
