Korea VS Iran

Iran may forfeit their match which may award us 3-0. I'm sure you guys will discuss this but in case you miss it.

i was looking up the south korean football team I think on Google and this showed up as one of the top results. 

I'll ask the Iranian guys I'm doing a Q&A with about it. Don't think the game will be forfeited though.

interesting but i doubt it.. looking forward to the game regardless!

There's no way they'll forfeit - in fact what worries me is the no cheering rule - because Koreans are most definitely going to cheer and the Iranian officials are definitely going to get offended...

can't they just move the match to a neutral area like they did for the match against Syria? 

For a game of dis magnitude and on such short notice I don think they will move it there might be a slight chance of it being cancelled as some protesters are gonna  block the entrance on game day

Yeah I read about that but Iranians are saying its a non-issue

the game will go on.

wait so will Korean fans wear darker colors and will goals not be celebrated?

No, they probably will. Sina in his interview with us just said that they'll (the government) probably put up some religious banners and stuff, but it's not apparently as big of a deal anymore for the fans on both sides.
