Gotta cut down on those silly mistakes. I love Lee, but he has to do better than that and he's experienced which isn't helping him either. In all fairness I think everyone had a down game.

I don't like this sort of mistakes. We gave so easy goal/win to Iran. But it was just a friendly match. This lose isn't that bad result. Our manager know what is our problem from this lost and he will do something. I believe we will get better and better.


Korea defeated by Iran in friendly match


It was a night when little went right for the Korean national soccer team. Korea lost 0-1 to Iran in a friendly at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on Tuesday night.

The only goal from Masoud Shojaei in the 33th minute was enough to humiliate manager Cho Kwang-rae

Yes, give Cho a few games and I think he can find the best starting 11. We only have four months to prepare for the Asian Cup though. I think it'll be tough on us.
