Iraqi National Team Make Blood Sacrifice So They Can Qualify For 2018 World Cup (Photo)

The desperation to feature in the world cup is real.

Iraq’s national football team is still without a point in Russia 2018 World Cup qualification as they’ve lost their first three matches which include defeats to
Australia (2-0), Saudi Arabia (1-2) and Japan (2-1) and face a must win home match against Thailand in their next qualifier game.


In a bid to qualify for the World Cup, they decided to slaughter a sheep publicly as a ‘sacrifice to god’ so that luck and good will could befall them in their next home game against Thailand- because according to the team, except God acts, it’s impossible for them to qualify for Russia 2018.

In 2011, Turkish team Sivasspor slaughtered a sheep before a game with a Serbian team and won 4-1. In Iraq the practise is seen as an ancient and trust worthy one.
