Uzbekistan beats Iraq 1:0

by Anonymous on 7/19/2004

After the European Football Championship 2004 in Portugal, interested football fans could follow the Asian Cup 2004 in China. The Uzbek team started the Cup with a victory over Iraq 1:0 thanks to an excellent free-kick by Mirjalol Qosimov. Uzbekistan is in Group C together with Turkmenistan, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan are the only central Asian countries to play in the Cup. There are many quite strong national teams in the Cup such as China, South Korea, Saudi Arabia and Japan. However, according to the coach of the Uzbek team Ravshan Haydarov any team can “do a Greece”, and he is sure that the Uzbek team will do its best to win the Cup.
