Iraq defeat Singapore as another penalty decision go against Lions

Iraq defeat Singapore 2-0 in the World Cup Qualifiers after yet another penalty decision go against Lions when the game was in the balance.

With Iraq in the lead, Singapore had a valid call for a penalty as Hafiz Rahim was hacked from the back when he was set to take a shot in the box and the Iraqi defence in chaos at that point.

Unfortunately, Japanese referee Tojo Minoru refused to acknowledge it and the Lions missed a golden chance to level the game.

Iraq will then go on to win the game 2-0 and take all 3 points.
