Photo of the Month

This month in 2012, Al Shorta and Al Zawraa played out one of the most entertaining Baghdad Derbies in Iraqi Premier League history. Hayder Sabbah scored a great free-kick to give Al Zawraa the lead but Amjad Kalaf responded with a brace to put the Harps in front. Hayder Sabbah notched his second from the penalty spot and it seemed the game would end in a draw until set-piece specialist Zaid Khalaf stepped up late on and curled a perfect free-kick into the top corner, sending a stunned Al Shaab Stadium into delirium. He celebrated by throwing his shirt off and running towards the Al Shorta fans in a moment forever captured in the photo below.
