The Asian Cup of Ayman Hussein (Iraq), who was the top scorer, ended in vain.
Iraq lost 2-3 to Jordan in the round of 16 of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup at Khalifa International Stadium in Alayyan, Qatar, on the 29th (local time). Iraq advanced to the round of 16 with three wins and one win, one draw and one loss and Jordan third in Group E, but something unusual happened from the first round of the tournament.
Hussein’s exit was a variable.
Hussein scored a goal to give Iraq the lead at the 31st minute of the second half when the score was tying 1-1. It was Hussein’s sixth goal at this year’s event. He took a step ahead in the race for the top scorer.
The question was later a ceremony. Hussein enjoyed the joy through a walking ceremony around the ground. It was not the end. He also added a ceremony to eat grass after sitting on the ground. He imitated the ceremony of Jordan, who scored the first goal.
The referee pointed a yellow card at Hussein. Hussein, who had already received one yellow card, left the ground due to accumulated warnings.
According to AFC text messaging, “excessive celebration” was the reason for the warning. FIFA rules say that in case of a ceremony that provokes or ridicules the opponent, the referee can issue a warning. In addition, warnings can be issued even if the ceremony drags on for a long time.
With Hussein’s exit, Jordan’s reversal drama unfolded. Iraq suffered a 2-3 come-from-behind defeat, giving up two goals in the second half of extra time alone.
“I don’t understand why the chief referee is taking out the red card for the sake of the ceremony. I saw a Jordanian ceremony. It was similar to Hussein’s, but the card didn’t come out,” Iraqi coach Jesus Casas said, expressing discontent with the referee’s decision. 헤라카지노
The Asian Cup, the top scorer, also ended with the exit and the elimination of the round of 16.
Four-goal Akram Afif (Qatar) is trailing Hussein. Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) and Ayase Ueda (Japan) who scored three goals are also in the race to become top scorer.
