Iran's World Cup Hopes on Life Support

Iran drew 1-1 with South Korea this morning, meaning they need help just to keep their World Cup hopes alive.

First, they need Saudi Arabia to lose to North Korea this afternoon -- that would give Iran third place in their group over the Saudis based on goal differential.

That would then get them into a playoff against the third place finisher in the other Asian group, which will likely be Bahrain.

If they can win that home-and-home playoff in September, that would then get them to another playoff against New Zealand (the playoff winner from Oceania) in October. If they win that, they're South Africa-bound.
