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
