Flashback Photo of the Month

This month in 2012, Al Shorta thrashed their rivals Al Quwa Al Jawiya 4-1 in one of the club's greatest ever league victories. Cameroonian striker Jean Michel N'Lend made history by becoming the first non-Iraqi player to score a hat-trick in the Iraqi Premier League, with all of this goals being headers. Al Shorta's other goal was also a header, scored by Muslem Mubarak and assisted brilliantly by Amjad Kalaf. It was a crucial win for the Harps who went on to win the league that season, finishing two points ahead of Erbil and three ahead of Al Quwa Al Jawiya.
