In an entertaining match Iran came from behind to defeat Iraq 2-1 in Group D of 2010 Asian Cup in Qatar.
Mobali and Rezaei had solid performances and each scored one goal. The conditioning of the Iranian players were superb (8% body fat!)
In the other Group D match, North Korea and UAE tied 0-0.
Iran will play N. Korea on Saturday at 5:15 AM Pacific time. No partying on Friday night (for the players, that is!)
Congratulations to Afshin Gotbi and all Iranian players and fans.
Here are the goals.
