the Iraq -S.Leone match was not played on 25.6, but on 23.5: the result was already on FIFA site on that date; I suppose FIFA has not so match power to predict the result of friendlies

It was suppose of have been a full international but Iraq sent an army team (which was the same side but for a few players)
It was in December. Not sure on the name of the referee. A report mentioned the name Muhtahsan.

We're lacking good goalscorers. One of the top scorers in the league Amjad Radhi can't seem to find the net (1 goal in 26 games at international level!!!), the other players are no better Hamadi Ahmed, Mohanad Abdul-Rahim and Mustafa Karim.

Iraq needs an FA to plan and execute real changes, there are many players in Europe that could play for Iraq, Jiloan Hamad, Rawaz Lawen, Zana Allee, Osama Rashid, Mustafa Hassan, Shwan Jalal, Andreas Haddad etc. You could build a strong team with these players.

The team of 2007 is gone, and it will take some time for the new generation to become a force in Asia.

The team that started against Chile, I would only select one player, the left back, Ali Adnan, the other 10 players you could find better alternatives in the Iraqi league or in Europe.

According to http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89quip ... ll_en_1960, in addition to Matches on 5 June and  23 December, there was a third Match:25 December 1960, in Baghdad, Iraq-Tunisia 1-3.Is this a mistake (kind of typo)
or 
Tunisia played an Iraqi XI or Club Team and the Author labelled it (wrongly) as National Iraq Team?

The last game was between Nadi Athori (Assyrian Sports Club) and Tunisia. The game ended 3-1 to the Tunisians.
Edison, Gorgis Ismail, Ammo Baba and Youra played for the side. It was a select side made up of Assyrian players and one Arab goalkeeper.

So did North Korea really make only 3 subs then? Unusual nowadays. More often if I read a match report where a lineup has only one or two subs, I simply assume that the authors didn't bother to list them!

Only three, the match was televised live on Waara Sport TV, their left back(No.16) was injured and was replaced in the 89th minute. Hopefully I can get hold of the official match report to get the name of the substitute and confirm the names of the No.8, 14 and 23.
The Koreans seem to use three subs in their friendlies they did the same in a previous game against Iraq in 2011.
Their keeper should've been sent off for handling outside the box - somehow received only a yellow!!!
Watch the full game. The Iraqi coach wanted the match to be played behind closed doors so not to reveal the team formation and tactics to China (who Iraq play in their Asian Cup qualifier next month) and was quite angry that his request was turned down. The TV rights for the game had been sold weeks before the game. So the coach decided that the players would wear different squad numbers (apart from captain Younis Mahmoud) to 'deceive' the Chinese observers. The Iraqi coach seems to be stuck in the 1930s or 40s - no disrespect but his team has played the same way in each of his matches as national coach - one lone forward, two wide men, and one deep forward.  Saying that I expect Iraq to beat China comfortably.

You would need to watch the footage from 89' onwards and try to spot another Korean number. Difficult without higher resolution,
Defending the free-kick there seem to be 11 Korean players on the field.

The Iraqi football has won its very first AFC title in club competitions, as Air Force have just captured the 2016 AFC Cup, the second most important tournament for Asian clubs.

"THE biggest stadium in the world is set to be built in Iraq... as a gift from Saudi Arabia's King Salman.

The 135,000-seater ground has been given the go-ahead"

What the f.....? is this a priority in the Middle East?

Building stadiums for other countries has been done for decades (e.g. by Chinese, Soviets etc) but the size of this one seems to be a symbolic statement.  What would be a realistic attainable attendance for "big" matches played in Iraq?

Can get you everything except a decent green screen.

Seems to be part of a general charm offensive.

As for attendance, they seem able to almost fill out their 65,000-seater in Basra even for friendlies (not sure how much is down to the novelty factor right now), so who knows if they can more than double it...
