Cartoon: “Kang-hee Style meets Iranian Style Football” By Kaveh Adel Iranian American Cartoonist
Iran beats South Korea at Munsu World Cup Stadium on June 18, 2013 in Ulsan.
With this win Iran qualifies for the World Cup in Brazil in 2014.
The rivalry between these two teams is legendary but it had reached a new low as the war of words, gestures and insults were exchanged between coaches. It was instigated by the Head Coach of South Korea, Choi Kang-hee, who had said “Honestly, I dislike Iran more [than Uzbekistan]. I hope Uzbekistan make it to the World Cup.” as well as a promise to “make life painful” for Iran and to force their captain to cry “tears of blood.”
This is certainly not the South Korean style of football just a poor style by him. I would have preferred him dancing the Gangnam Style to loosen up a bit!
On a truly positive note, people of Iran are jubilant and celebrating in the streets for a second time in less than a week ever since the presidential election results last Saturday.
