Iraq to play Qatar after being held by Iran
Iraq were held to a goalless draw by Iran in their final Group D game at the Asian Cup, setting up a round of 16 tie with Qatar on Tuesday.
Iran, whose newspapers and players had claimed they wanted to take revenge on Iraq for eliminating them from the 2015 Asian Cup, failed to muster up a single shot on target against the 2007 champions, despite their optimism and motivation for the game.
Iraq had the best chance of the match, with young striker Alaa Abbas seeing his excellent header tipped over the bar. With Qatar beating Saudi Arabia 2-0, it means the Lions of Mespotamia will lock horns with the maroons in the next round of the cup.
