Mesopotamia: The Champions of Asia

Iraq beats Saudi Arabia 1-0. Omar Fahil is happy. Helio dos Anjos, the Brazilian coach of Saudi Arabia, was generous in defeat. His side were playing a lot more than 11 other players.

"We knew that Iraq would be a very difficult team to play in the final," said the 49-year-old.

"Because of the political situation in Iraq, they were very motivated to do well and they also had the support of the crowd here and all around the world.

"I am very happy for the Iraqi team, for all of their staff and especially for all of the people in Iraq.

"I wish them all the best and congratulate them on this result because they deserve to be happy."

Let's hope the happiness is unmarred.
