Football World Cup Qualifier Challenge

Pakistan will fight Iraq to qualify for a rare position in the next Football World Cup to be held in 2010 in South Africa. Iraq is a strong force in Asian leg of the game and has recently won Asia Cup in July, 2007.

On the other hand, our team is trying hard to make a mark on platform of the world’s most popular sport by winning two SAF Cups and recent surprise wins over strong teams like Singapore. Besides, inclusion of six foreign based Pakistani football players in the national team should also give Pakistan some boost.

Let’s see what is the outcome of Pakistan vs Iraq – 2010 World Cup Qualifier being played this evening at the Punjab Stadium, Lahore.

    Pakistan is an improved team in football… but not improved enough.

    We lost to Iraq 7-0 today.

    Some history of this match:

    This was the 8th encounter between pakistan & iraq. Pakistan won the first one in 1969, and lost the next 7, the latest being today by 7-0

    Asian Cup Champions Iraq are currently ranked at 65 in the world, while Pakistan is ranked 179.

    Pakistan will hope to reverse the trend in their next match against Iraq on Oct 28, to be played in Syria.
