Old video clips from 1985


Here are two old video clips of friendly matches played against Saudi Arabia, played on the eve of Iraq’s crucial 1986 World Cup qualifier with the UAE. Iraq lost both matches in Taif and Jeddah, and it cost Akram Salman his job. A month earlier, Iraq’s B team had beaten Saudi Arabia both in the Arab Cup and Pan Arab Games.
