Iran coach Amir Ghalenoiee has named a 25-man squad for the 2007 Asian Cup final qualifying match against South Korea on Nov. 15.
Despite the fact that South Korea will be fielding a team heavily drawn from their Asiad-bound squad, Ghalenoiee has opted to go flat out by including the likes of Mehdi Mahdavikia, Javad Nekounam, Andranik Teymourian and Ali Karimi.
The two sides have already qualified for next year's finals, to be co-hosted by Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam. The first leg ended 1-1 in Seoul.
