Afshin Ghotbi

Afshin Ghotbi.
Afshin Ghotbi, South Korea's Iran born technical coach, was refused a visa to visit Iran for South Korea's final game in their Asian Cup qualifying Group B.

Ghotbi left Iran as a teenager and now holds US citizenship.

No reason was given by the Iranian authorites for the refusal of the coach's visa.

Ghotbi was disappointed by the decision and was hopeful that FIFA would take action against the Iranian FA.

Both teams have already qualified for the Asian Cup.

Second half goals from Reza Enyati and Hossein Badamaki gave Iran a 2-0 victory which saw them top the group ahead of the Koreans.
