As 64,000 spectators gathered at the Seoul World Cup Stadium for the first time in the era of Corona, the fans prayed for a 'victory victory' with one voice.

[Son Heung-min fighting!]

[I hope Iran wins.

Fighting Korea!] The

full audience expressed the joy of going intuition after a long time with the card section, and the Taegeuk warriors responded with a hot game.

The solution was captain Son Heung-min.

A powerful right-footed no-rotation mid-range shot pierced the Iran goal in extra time in the first half, sending the stadium into a frenzy.

It was the 4th goal in the final qualifying round and the first goal in a match in 4 months.

Bentuho, who won the victory, continued to push hard in the second half.

In the 8th minute of the second half, Kim Young-kwon put a wedge.

Hwang Hee-chan broke the flank and passed the ball to Lee Jae-seong, and Kim Young-kwon, who received a one-touch pass, broke the net with a left-footed shot.

While the shouts of the Republic of Korea covered Sangambeol, the national team, which carried out a wave until the end, won a 2-0 victory.

They tasted victory against Iran for the first time in 11 years, and in the final qualifying round, they continued their unbeaten streak with 7 wins and 2 draws, beating Iran and taking the lead in Group A.

[Heung-Min Son/Captain of the soccer team: The shot hit very well, but I think it was a ball that could have been blocked by the goalkeeper.

Since there is one game left, the goal is to achieve the beauty of Yujong well.]

Bentuho departs for Dubai tomorrow (26th) and aims to solidify the lead by winning the final match against the United Arab Emirates on the 29th.
