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

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.
