Iraq won their one and only Asian Cup title under Brazilian Jorvan Vieira, third from right, in 2007.

On the 10th anniversary of Iraq's shock 2007 AFC Asian Cup triumph, then-coach Jorvan Vieira says tea drinking, and sleepless nights of checking on his players, were the keys to the football success of a war-torn nation.

Iraq stunned Saudi Arabia 1-0 in the final, having beaten South Korea on penalties in the semifinals, and Vietnam in the quarterfinals.

In the group stage, they upset Australia 3-1 and drew with co-hosts Thailand and Oman.

FIFA approves Saudi Arabia-Japan move, Australia made to wait

Australia may not know its 2018 World Cup fate until the morning after their must-win clash against Thailand.

Owing to time differences and expected scorching temperatures in Western Asia, FIFA has determined the final round of Asian Group B qualifiers due to be played on Tuesday, Sept. 5 will not kick off simultaneously.

That could mean a nervous wait -- or a sleepless night -- for fans hoping for certainty from Australia's match against Thailand, which will be played at 8 p.m. local time at Melbourne's...

FIFA will not take any action against Saudi Arabia after their national team declined to participate in a minute's silence in memory of last weekend's deadly attacks in London.

Saudi Arabia declined to participate in a minute's silence to honour the victims of last weekend's London attack before their 2018 World Cup qualifier in Adelaide on Thursday, their opponents Australia said.

Tom Rogic heroics but Socceroos fail to convince vs. Saudi Arabia

Australia prevailed 3-2 against Saudi Arabia courtesy of Tom Rogic's second half stunner.
Celtic and Australia midfielder Tom Rogic hit home this powerful left-footed winner against Saudi Arabia.
 

Australia kept their 2018 World Cup hopes alive with a 3-2 victory at home over Saudi Arabia on Thursday evening. However, if they do manage to qualify for football's showpiece event, they could well be one of the least convincing teams in Russia.

Despite the win, the Socceroos remain in third position in Group B with two matches remaining, trailing both Saudi Arabia and Japan on goals for and against. The Japanese also have a game in hand, in which they will face Iraq next week.
