Iraq soccer returns


Retromaniac

Recommended Posts

For years, the Iraq national soccer team was practically nonexistent. Under Hussein, they were severely punished if they lost. Because of this, they went into hiding. One man went door to door and finally found all of them. Now, they are competing again. They just beat Portugal the other day. So let's all give them a big congratulations.

Watanun Medde Alalufqui Janaha

Warteda Majdalkadarati Wisha

Burikat Ardulfurataini Watan

Abqariyyalmajd Azmen Wa Samaha Wata ha.

Hathihil-ardu Lehibun Wa Sana

Wa Shumukhum La Tudanini Sama

Jabalun Yesmu Ala Hamil-duna

Wa Suhulun Jassadat Fina-l-iba

Babilun Fina Wa Ashourun Lena

Wa Bina-l-tarikhu Yakhdallu Dia

Nahnu Fin-nasi Jamana Wahduna

Dumta Lil-urbi Malathan Ya Iraq

Wa Shumusan Tajalu-l-layla Sabaha.

What I meant was they disbanded the team.

No, Udai ran the team. And when ever they lost, they were severly punished.

Mockba is right, about 2 weeks ago ESPN did a very good story on the rebirth and past of the national team.
