Iraq beat Saudi Arabia to win Asian Cup

Iraq have won the Asian Cup for the first time after defeating Saudi Arabia 1-0. Captain Younes Mahmoud headed the winning goal from a 72nd minute corner. The Iraqi squad includes Kurds, Sunnis, Shias and Turkomans. The players had faced kidnap threats, the murder of loved ones, and disruptions to their training schedules. The problems in Iraq forced Brazilian coach Jorvan Vieira to train the squad in Syria and Jordan. All of which makes the victory even more impressive.
