    the Official Iraq Football Thread 2006

    Iraq one of the strongest teams in Asian in the 80's, But unfortunately the wars destroyed our sports, Iraq National team wasn’t in the mood in the 90's. after 2003 our Football raise slowly and we show to the world we are back, we played well in the Olympic games 2004, and we played with our Olympic team in the Asian Cup 2004 too, and we did well too,

    2005 the start we played several friendly games and unfortunately our team wasn’t complete squad, each match we missed 5 to 6 players, but we did the important thing we won the only tournament in 2005, which is it the West Asian Games 2005.

    Now 2006, and for the 1st time since ….. forever, our team completed and now we are ready to back on top again.

    This is the official thread for Iraq Football 2006.

    Iraq FA

    [​IMG]

    Despite the political hardships that Iraq goes through daily, they remain one of the top West Asian footballing countries in Asia. War and civil instability continue to plague this country but it has never brought football to a complete standstill.
    Established in 1948, the Iraqi FA joined FIFA two years later. However, their membership in AFC only came in 1971. Despite all the hardships it goes through, achievements at both international and domestic level have been numerous for the war-ravaged country.

    At the regional level, Iraq won the Arab Cup four times - 1964, 1966, 1985, 1988 and the Gulf Cup, three times - 1979, 1984 and 1988. In the youth level, they claimed the AFC U-19 titles five times - 1975, 1977, 1978, 1988 and 2000.

    No doubt, the 1986 Mexico World Cup brings smiles to the faces of many Iraqis as they qualified for the final rounds for the first time in history. Recently, the Athens 2004 Olympic saw another miracle as Iraq become the only Asian country to reach the semi finals. In fact, Iraq tasted success in 1982 already, winning the gold medal in the Asian Games held in India.

    On the domestic front, Police club nearly won an Asian club title but withdrew as they had to face then AFC member, Israel club, Maccabi Tel Aviv in the 1971 final.

    Police club was formed even before the FA was established. Other clubs to have its early existence were Air Force in 1931 and Transportation club in 1937. After that, many other clubs came into existence.

    The Iraqi league started in 1962 and continued until 1973. In these 11 years, only clubs from Baghdad participated before it was open to all clubs in Iraq.

    Currently, the league struggles to continue with numerous stoppages due to domestic violence and instability. However, Iraq’s national team consistent performance continues unabated by all these happenings.

    Awesome thread Mussav, thanks! :)

    Btw, I heard Razzaq Farhan was going to join Dubai SC, apparently he didn't and instead moved to Al-Riffa?

    I'm really pleased with Akram Salman's picks, except for Yassir Ra3ad...I don't think he's good enough for the national team.

    thanks mate ;)


    thanks mm, actually I heard that he went to Iranian Club, but I'm not sure, officially his now playing for West Riffa.

    about Yeassir Raad, he's not the only player that good for the National team
    also Haitham Kadim and Udai Talib

    yeah I'm sure hat playing in the one of the best clubs in Bahrain better than playing in a club in the 2nd Division

    Re: the Official Iraq Football Thread 2006

    that's great news, but that was so fast, Akram Salman said he will miss his Big Guns, any way Lebanon match won't be so easy, they won over Saudi Arabia in Riyadh 2-1.

    ----------------------------------

    Younis will participate in all friendlies

    Iraqi striker Younis Mahmoud was given the green light today by his current club administration to take part in Iraq’s friendly match against Lebanon. Younis will therefore take part in Iraq’s two friendly matches on the 8th and the 13th against Lebanon and Oman, before the team heads for Thailand on the 14th of February to undergo a one-week closed training camp.

    In regards to the Asian Cup Iraqi home game matches, It has been confirmed by the Iraqi FA that the national team will play their home matches in the United Arab Emirates. The games will be plays in either Abu Dhabi or the city of Al-Ain depending on the availability of the grounds.

    Hopefully Palestine and Iraq make it through... our peoples could use an extra thing to smile about.

    PS- Iraq used to have black jerseys with the iraqi flag on them diagonally... those were sweet... what happened?

    thanks, I hope so, but we both od us, we must work hard to Qualify.

    are you serious? because that Jersey was awful,
    Iraq team in the 80's known with the green jersey.

    now we use the green jersey at Home and the White jersey Away.

    Yeah, the only time Iraq did well in a club competition was many years back when Al-Shorta reached the final and then pulled out of the competition when it had to meet Maccabi Tel Aviv of Israel.
