The IRA vs IRQ match preview –

Fireworks are expected as Iran will be taking on Iraq in the final group-stage game in the AFC Asian Cup 2019 on Wednesday. Iran are one of the favourites to win the entire competition this time out. They are yet to even concede a goal and have scored seven in return. The team is playing some breathtaking football, and it will be interesting to see how far can they take this in the tournament. With the likes of Azmoun, Taremi and Amiri, they have genuine stars in the roster who can turn the fortunes around at any given moment.

Meanwhile, Iraq too are having a decent outing. The team won its two games and have qualified for the next stage of the tournament. Even though the country has been in turmoil for the past decade and a half due to wars, the players are doing their bit in order to help out some of their countrymen by giving them something to cheer for. The team is strong everywhere, but still needs a lot of more experience in the defensive department.
