We sat down with Lorival Santos, the Brazilian manager who made history by becoming the first coach from outside of Asia to win the Iraqi Premier League as he led the Harps to their landmark fifth Premier League title and tenth overall league title in the 2013-14 season. Read our exclusive interview with him here!
This month in 2012, Al Shorta and Al Zawraa played out one of the most exciting Baghdad Derby matches in recent memory. Al Zawraa took the lead with a Hayder Sabbah free-kick, but Amjad Kalaf netted twice as Al Shorta went 2-1 up. Hayder Sabbah then slotted home a penalty to equalise the game, but with only a few minutes remaining, Al Shorta's set piece specialist Zaid Khalaf curled in a beautiful free-kick from long range right into the top corner to give the Harps a 3-2 victory. His celebration was captured perfectly in the photo below:
