South Korea lost to Iran 1-0 in its last football friendly of 2014 in Tehran on Tuesday, with the home side getting a late goal.

Substitute Sardar Azmoun was credited with the winner in the 82nd minute on a controversial goal line play, as Iran remained undefeated against South Korea at Azadi Stadium in its capital city.

The 19-year-old Rubin Kazan forward pounced at the chance to cash in after Javad Nekounam’s free-kick had hit both posts.

    It’s okay. Just can’t lose against Japan.
