The Iraqi team continued their very good playing in the second match against Costa Rica. They proved to the entire world that nothing can stop the Iraqis no matter what situations they are in, even the players don’t know if their families are alive or how they are doing but they showed the world that they are good players no matter where or when they play.
The First Half:
The first half started normally from the both teams there weren’t good attack until the minute 10 when Nashat Akram made a shot and it went beside the goal and a lot of attacks for the Iraqi team happened but no point they all failed to touch the goal net, and there were a very good attacks from the other team too, the player Diaz made a lot of attacks from the left side, but all those attacks from the both teams failed.
The Second Half:
The Second half started by a lot of attacks from the Iraqi side especially by Emad Mohammed from the right side and Hawar Mullah Mohammed from the left side, and then from a shot by Qussai Moneer the ball hit the player and comes to Hawar Mohammed so he shot it very heavy and he scored the first goal and a few minutes from scoring the first goal an Hawar Mullah Mohammed made an attack from the left side and crossed the ball to Mahdi Kareem and this man scored the second goal by his head, and those are all the events in the second half nothing changed at all.
But I have to talk about Nour Sabry ( the Goal Keeper ) he saved a lot of attacks against him and he played very good.
And now our position is the first in out group:
1- Iraq ( 6 goals) ( 6 points )
2- Portugal ( 3 pointes )
3- Costa Rica ( 1 point )
4- Morocco ( 1 point )
The Players who scored for the Iraqi team in the first and the second match are:
1- Hawar Mullah Mohammed ( 2 goals )
2- Younis Mahmoud ( 1 goal )
3- Emad Mohammed ( 1 goal )
4- Salih Sadeer ( 1 goal )
5- Mahdi Kareem ( 1 goal )
Lets hope that we will beat Morocco next match and complete the the first round with 9 pointes.
Olay Olay Olay Iraq.
