Iraq Not Going to The World Cup

Mexico VS. Portugal - More amazing videos are a click away

As evidenced by this Simpsons clip, the enjoyment and mania over soccer is confusing to me: "high-kickin', low-scorin', and tiiieeesss". But it's very obvious that soccer is a big deal to the Iraqis (seen last year during the Asia cup win), and it sucks that they lost 1-0 to Qatar and won't go to the world cup in South Africa (h/t Inside Iraq). Sorry, Iraq.
