Kasim goal sinks DRC

Yaser Kasim scored the only goal of the game as Iraq beat the Democratic Republic of Congo 1-0 in an international friendly on Tuesday.

The result was the second victory for the Gulf state over their African rivals in less than a week after last week’s 2-1 victory in Sharjah.

In Tuesday’s match, the Swindon Town midfielder burst into space in the 56th minute and buried his long-range into the back of the net to win it for his side.
