The ref made the right call and that was a silly foul by Shojaei. The saving grace is Bahrain tied to Hong Kong. Playboy, I believe we should hope that Iraq and Bahrain tie so neither team can get 3 points.
TeamMeli bruder, I saw the shortened version of the fight in Basra arena, the Iraqi boys did fight very well to get those well deserved 3 points.
What more amazed me was the arena, they said IRI-jagofs spend loada chippa out there in Basra to build that sport arena, but it looked most like some sludgy Mexican sport arena where algae invasion had almost taken all over the turf.
I watched the first half and decided to give the second half a miss. What an inspired decision!
It was awful to watch, nothing from Iran other than passing the ball aimlessly. Iraqi defense was laughable at times as was their keeper.
Neither team deserves to be in a WC. In fact no team that plays like these two should be anywhere near a WC.
