Russia 2018: Iraqi national team sacrifice sheep to qualify 

The Iraqi’s national team who are still without a point in Russia 2018 World Cup qualification after three consecutive defeats have taken the World cup qualifiers to a whole new level.

They leadership of the Iraqi’s national team on tuesday performed a bizarre, fetish act by slaughtering a sheep publicly as a ‘sacrifice to god’ so that luck and good will could befall them in their next home game against Thailand.

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

Iraq faces a must win home match against Thailand in their next qualifier game if the must be part of Russia 2018.
