North Korea striker Jong Tae-Se has underlined the importance of scoring against Iraq in their final Group D game in the Asian Cup on Wednesday.

The 2007 Asian Cup winners will qualify for the quarter-finals with a draw while the Koreans, who have collected just a solitary point from their two matches so far, need to win to have any chance of going through.

"We have to make it count in attack and finally score some goals. Otherwise the tournament is over for us."
