 Iraqs two major international players ridiculed the epidemic and were expelled from the national team + fined


Recently, a video has been widely spread on social networking sites in Iraq: Iraqi national team members zagham Ismail and Allah mahawi have made a variety of mocks on a series of regulations issued by the Iraqi government, such as keeping social distance for better epidemic prevention, and even those who pay attention to safety warnings. This is considered to have a serious impact on the countrys epidemic prevention, and also caused widespread concern from all walks of life. After all, those who ridicule these measures are members of the active Iraqi national team.

It is in this case that the Iraqi Football Association has made a punishment decision on the two. In a statement issued on June 20, the Transitional Council of the Iraqi Football Association said: the Transitional Council has seen the video widely spread on social media. In the video, novel coronavirus pneumonia is violated by Ishmael and Harvey, who are in violation of the relevant guidelines for health warnings and even joking with the new crown pneumonia virus, which threatens the lives of all the world. After consulting with Iraqi national team coach katanic, we decided to remove the two players from the national team and impose a fine of 2 million Iraqi dinams per player. The novel coronavirus pneumonia will be supported by fines.

It is reported that the League of 2019-20 season in Iraq has been cancelled. In order to maintain the player status, the Iraqi national team has announced 34 players and will start training, preparing in advance for the final 40 rounds of the top 40 World Cup qualifiers starting in October.
