Other Encounters

Hussein

AFC ASIAN CUP 2000 1/4 finals:
Japan - Iraq, 4 - 1. Sports City Stadium, Beirut, Lebanon, 2000-10-24

Sometimes Iraqi players were tortured after a lost match. Sahrar Hayday, a national team player has been tortured 4 times after a loss and was locked up for weeks. It was Uday Hussein, Saddam's son, who thought terror was the way to get his team to win.

FIFA
A FIFA delegation went to investigate the allegations of torture following the defeat against Japan. The heads of the Qatari and Malaysian FAs and a doctor flew in some two(!) months after the match to interview the players. Also present were a few Iraqi security policemen. Of course they found nothing.
