 For those who may be interested ( all 3 of you!),  hosts qatar beat
iraq 1 - 0 for the gold medal. Bilal Rajab scored the winner on a
header, in the 63'. (Iraq were the Asian Cup holders in 1982,
this was their first final in 24 years)
 The game however had briefly brought Iraqi people together. (Only 22
bodies were found in Baghdad on game day, Friday!)
Stores reported a run on the green/white Iraqi flags. Fans were
cheering for the mixed shia-sunni-kurd players.

It's a shame they didn't win. I wish (most of ) them something to cheer
about ...

It is a pity, but it looks like Qatar dominated the game. However Iraq
atleast got the silver medal which is quite an achievement, as they
beat powers like South Korea ....
