Haj Safi netted a second goal for Iran from the penalty spot in the 42nd minute. That was a VAR penalty awarded by the referee.
Iran’s 3rd goal came in a stunning style with a minute left on the clock, as Ali Gholizadeh displayed a combination of dribbling skills and persistence to remove a number of defenders, before scoring the goal.
Both halves saw plenty of opportunities open to Iran.
The win means Iran remain at the Top of Group A with 16 points, two clear of South Korea, after 6 rounds.
