We Want to See a Quality Match: Iraq Coach
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iraq coach Radhi Shenaishil said that he is interested in seeing a quality match against Iran not powerful tackles.
Iraq will play Iran on Friday at the Canberra Stadium in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup quarter-final.
“I want to see a quality match tomorrow (Friday) and not powerful [and bad] tackles. We are in the quarter-final and we want to give the right impression of the football in Asia, the quality in Asia,” Shenaishil said in the pre-match news conference.
“Both teams, Iran and Iraq, will be telling their players to have a quality match and forget emotions,” he added.
“There’s history between the two teams and Iran have similar football school as Iraq, a same style of football. I played in 1993 when we beat Iran 2-1. They are a very good team especially in the early 1970s when they were at a high level,” Shenaishil stated.
