IRA vs IRQ Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Two Asain neighbours will collide on the football pitch when Iran play Iraq in the AFC Asian Cup group stage match at Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum Stadium, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates tomorrow, on Wednesday night (IST).
Iran are the true force of Asian football at the moment. Australia’s powers are dwindling, Japan are not consistent enough while South Korea are too dependent on Son Heung-min.
They had a very good world cup as well despite not progressing from the group stage. Placed in the group which had Spain and Portugal, they were never amongst the favourites to go further than the first hurdle.
They won their first game 1-0 against Morocco, before falling to Spain by the same scoreline in the next match. But the next match against Portugal was the clear proof of their power as they held Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. to a 1-1 draw.
Since the World Cup, they are unbeaten, winning five times in the last six games, including the two at the ongoing AFC Asian World Cup, without conceding a goal.
Iraq, on the other hand, have won their first two games in the AFC Asian Cup to stand at six points and level on with their might neighbours. This is a very good chance for them to show what they are capable of doing as a win for them against Iran will take them to the very summit of the group.
Srečko Katanec’s men are on a three-game winning streak heading into this match and are unbeaten in the last five.
