Iraq Defeats Portugal! Kroc Now Loves Soccer

KROC has a new favorite team to root for during the Olympics.

Now Euro's - The US was able to develop a Iraqi soccer team that is good enough to beat a Euro powerhouse - admit it the US has helped Iraq immensely

Um - actually, the team was developed by its german coach who only had to leave the country when the security situation deteriorated too far. No point for you, this time.  Wink/being sarcastic

Okay, I retract my irony.  Wink/being sarcastic

A good day for Iraq, in any case. I hope they´ll get further ahead in the games. No shame in cheering for them!  Big thumbs up

Actually, I dont know him much, but I would doubt he would like any team playing football/soccer. So this victory for Iraq probably means shit to KROC

You know a "Miracle on Ice" moment for Iraq would not be a bad thing at the moment.

It is amazine how well athletes can perform when Uday isn't using his coaching techniques.

Congrats to the Iraqui team for playing a great game!

As for our team, well, they played lousy, so they deserved the result. I only hope they clean up their act for the next games.

Regards
