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 2013, Al Shorta and Al Zawraa played out a memorable Baghdad Derby in front of a packed Al Shaab Stadium. Al Zawraa took an early lead but the Harps responded with two goals in as many minutes right at the end of the first half, first through Waleed Salem and then through a powerful header from Jean Michel N'Lend, captured perfectly in the photo below. The legendary Nashat Akram also made his second Al Shorta debut, being subbed on near the end of the match having re-signed for the club days earlier. The Police went on to win the league title that season and this was one of the campaign's most unforgettable victories.
