Iraqi U16 Team Arrives in UK

Fifteen Iraqi youngsters arrived in the UK on 1st of August 2005 to take part in the annual Arsenal International Soccer Festival at the Royal Holloway in Surrey, England.
This is a great first for the annual Arsenal festival to receive an Iraqi team and the organisers were very impressed with the team's skills, overall technical ability and discipline.

This young team will face two British sides on Tuesday (2/8) and Wednesday (3/8) before playing against a team from the USA on Friday (5/8) and hopefully make it to the semi finals and finals on Sunday (7/8).
This is great, I am gonna have to go and see them. By the way, there is an error on that story, it reported that the team arrived on 31st of August!
