Iraqi Football

On Monday, July 19, 2004, the new Iraq football team played extremely well against Uzbekistan, according to my sources. While they did lose 0-1, it was at the end of a hard fought game when the other team received a free kick. The new manager, Mr. Adnan Hamed, let 15 of the older players go while including some Olympic team players. Was this a good move? Let's give them time before we make any judgements. Their next scheduled game is Thursday, July 22, 2004, against Turkmenistan. You may be able to watch this game on an Iraqi station named Iraqia.

Try to imagine how you would play at anything with the foreknowledge that no matter what you did, you would probably be tortured when you returned home? I am very proud of the Iraqi team, and I will be following them. It must be a liberating feeling to know that when you get back home to your loved ones, you are not going to be tortured for losing. No matter what, you are winners in my eyes!
