Iraq cruise past Yemen to secure knockout berth
Iraq won their first two Asian Cup games for the first time ever as they put three past Yemen to secure a place in the Round of 16.
Mohanad Ali gave the Lions a lead with a fantastic solo goal, running across the box weaving past defenders before blasting the ball home. Bashar Rasan made it two a few minutes later with a deflected shot, while Alaa Abbas netted Iraq's third in stoppage time after good work from Mohammed Dawood and Ahmed Yasin.
Iraq are currently second in Group D, and will face rivals Iran in the last group game. A win for the 2007 champions would put them top of the group and earn a more favourable draw for the knockout rounds.
