Weekend Guide-Recap Birthday Edition

Hey Baba!

I've heard it's your birthday. As a real football enthusiast, I decided to give you the best present. So take your sit back, and enjoy  the best matches we had on our Weekend Recap during the past year.

January 23, Iran – Iraq (AFC Asian Cup)

After the Asian Cup group stage, Iran was one of the favorites for winning the tournament, although the Iraqis had different plans. With amazing 90 minutes, four goals in the extra time and great penalty shootouts, Iraq sensationally qualified for the semifinals.

March 14, Universidad de Chile – Colo Colo (Chilean Primera División)

Imagine it. It's the biggest derby of your club, in your opponent's stadium. Your team struggled behind, but equalized during the second half. Then, in the additional time, your team gets a penalty. This is the story of this match, and this is how it looks from the POV of Colo Colo fans. Goosebumps.

March 22, Al Nasr – Al Ahli (Saudi Premier League)

These two teams were in the race for the title during the season. Al Nasr took the lead quickly, but a great performance by Al Ahli made the change. Despite this victory, Al Ahli failed to win any title, finished second in the league, 4 points behind Al Nasr.

April 25, Crvena Zvezda – Partizan Belgrade (Serbian Superliga)

A Goalless draw? That's not a big deal! The derby of Belgrade is always full of passion with its fans and atmosphere. You can see that even with a dull result, the game was great, so maybe until your next birthday you will visit that match! (I know a few guys who can give you some tips).

June 1, Nigeria – Brazil (U-20 World Cup)

So Baba, I hope you will keep enjoy football, like these talented kids. Keep showing up the beautiful side of the game, and always keep it happy. By the way, Brazil were the runner-ups of the World Cup, I wish that this year you will be the World champion.
