Someone forgot to tell the Iraqi Mens' Soccer team that their story was too corny and unbelievable to be true. This time, Iraq beat Australia 1-0 in the Olympic quarterfinals. The irony there is thicker than a eucalyptus grove, the Aussies were the ones who flew the Iraqi Olympians out of Baghdad.
Can they actually win the gold? Two matches for that, and the team needs one more win for a spot on the medal podium. Next up is Paraguay, and after that a script rewrite to make it more believable.
