Iraq appoint new national football coach

Dec 31 2012, 2:58am CST | by

Baghdad, Dec 31 (IANS) Hakeem Shakir has been promoted from caretaker to Iraq head coach, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has said.

Baghdad, Dec 31 — Hakeem Shakir has been promoted from caretaker to Iraq head coach, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has said.

The AFC said in a statement Sunday that the Iraq football association made the decision after Shakir acted as caretaker following Brazilian Zico's resignation late November, reports Xinhua.

Shakir led Iraq to the finals of the under-19 Asian championship and the West Asian championships in 2012.

Shakir, 49, will face his first task of the Gulf Cup 2013 starting in Bahrain next week.

Iraq are also vying for a place in the 2014 World Cup finals.

They are third in Group B of the Asia Zone final qualifiers with five points from five games.
