Iraq celebrates victory .

Sadly it's only their new national football team that have won the Asian Cup. Read here.

Bit of a swizz really as Iraq isn't Asian. So wonder what it means that they can play in that tournament?

Interesting enough not all the team returned to the victory celebration. After the attacks at the semi finals celebration they didn't feel safe. My surprise it actually that some of them actually returned for the celebrations. Brave men. These sort of people are the sort that our guys are dying to allow to take over that hell hole. I wonder how many people like that are actually in the government? Very few I would imagine.

The Asian Football Federation goes from the Middle East all the way to Australia. This was the first year that Australia were in this tournament. They stuffed up pretty badly, not adjusting to the stifling weather conditions, losing to minnows like Iraq (well that is the way they were considered early in the tournament).
