TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Iran striker Reza Ghoochannejhad said that he wants to score against South Korea once again.
Iran will face the Korean football team in a friendly on November 18 in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium.
Ghoochannejhad was Iran's hero against South Korea, latching on to an error by defender Kim Young-gwon to score the winner in the 60th in Ulsan in the 2014 World Cup qualifier .
Asked him if he wants to score against South Korea once again, Ghoochannejhad said: “I want to score in every game, however we have to forget our previous match against the team,” he added.
“My priority is our national team and it doesn’t matter anymore who scores. I want to help my country, that’s why I am here,” he added.
Iran, which is handled by former Real Madrid and Portugal head coach Carlos Quieroz, is preparing itself for the 2015 AFC Asian Cup.
Team Melli has been pitted against the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Qatar and Bahrain in Group C of the tournament.
