27-man squad named for Australia test

Iraq National Team manager, Radhi Shenaishil, has announced his 27-man squad for the Lions’ upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Australia and Saudi Arabia. Iraq are currently placed 5th in the group, having only earned three points in five matches. Although not the best of starts, Iraq will be hoping the second phase of group games will end differently and a playoff spot will most certainly be on Shenaishil’s sights.
