Flashback Photo of the Month

This month in 2013, Al Shorta played against rivals Al Talaba in a Baghdad Derby in the final match of the 2012-13 season. It had been a long, eventful campaign and the Harps found themselves just one victory away from their first league title in a decade. Hussein Kareem scored the opener in the first half before Minusu Buba and Dhurgham Ismail added further goals as Al Shorta clinched an unforgettable 3-0 win to seal the title. Nashat Akram lifted the famous golden shield alongside Amjad Kalaf and Ali Husain Jalil in a moment forever captured in the photo below.
