Iraq Futbol - Asian Cup 2007 Champions

Shout out to the Iraqi Futbol squad, who are the Champions of Asia. If any country could use a sports championship, to provide a moment of celebration & respite from the despair in their country, it's Iraq.

I could write something about the irony of
Iraq - who had nothing to do with 9/11
beating in the Cup Final
Saudi Arabia - who had 15/19 hijackers of the 9/11 attack

But I'll refrain.

Final v Saudi Arabia


Semi v S. Korea

It really does ones heart good to see Iraq come together in celebration, regardless of the reason.

Taking your lead, elgringocolombiano, I'll also not point out the obvious....
