Iraq Wins the Asia Cup!!!

Posted by Ryan on July 29, 2007

Iraq defeated Saudi Arabia 1-0 in the Asia Cup Soccer Championship today in Jakarta, Indonesia.  Over the course of the tournament, Iraq won its group, beat Australia, South Korea and then scored the only goal of the championship match against the Saudis in the 72nd minute of play.  The picture below shows the actual moment:

I love seeing this stuff.  If anyone, the Iraqis needed a break on something.  With hard work and heart, their soccer team pulled off an unlikely victory which is sure to be spun as a great underdog story.  And just think, no one had to worry about being tortured based on the outcome!  You’re welcome, Iraq.
