Syria Hopes to Beat Iran to Reach Russia 2018 World Cup

Syria Hopes to Beat Iran to Reach Russia 2018 World Cup

Alwaght- Football match between Iran and Syria will start at 16:00 P.M. (GMT) on Tuesday, as millions of war-torn Syrians their national team be qualified for next year's World Cup in Russia.

With 21 points from its previous nine matches, Iran sits on top of Group A’s table and have already qualified for the next year’s extravaganza in Russia.

Syrian team, referred to by many Syrians as the "Qasioun Eagles" after a mountain overlooking the capital Damascus, has been on an impressive run despite being forced to play all its games in other countries.

The Syrians beat Qatar 3-1 on Thursday in Malaysia, moving into third place in the group. The top two finishers in the six-team group will automatically qualify for next year's tournament in Russia, while the third-place team will enter a playoff.

If the Syrians beat Iran in Tehran in their final group match today, they would be guaranteed to finish at least third. But Syria could finish second and qualify directly depending on the result of the match between South Korea and Uzbekistan.

"Our team is ready to achieve victory and qualify Syria for the first time to the World Cup," Muwaffaq Fathallah, the chief administrator of the Syrian team, said by telephone from the Iranian capital. "We want the Syrian people to be happy."

The qualification would come as a welcome surprise for millions across the war-torn country, which has been devastated by six years of foreign-backed militancy and terrorism.

More than 400,000 people have been killed and half the country's prewar population displaced since the conflict erupted in March 2011.

Syrian national team's possible victory will also be a boost for the central government, projecting normalcy on the world stage while the country's army continues to recapture territory from terrorists.

Syrian state television reported on Tuesday that army forces have broken nearly three-year siege imposed by ISIS terrorist group on Deir ez-Zor city.

The government troops defending the city and those advancing from the west have met today, Syrian media reported.

According to United Nations says there are about 93,000 people in Deir ez-Zor, where for years has been supplied only by air.

Despite massive redeployment of fighters and military hardware by the ISIS terrorists from other parts of Iraq and Syria to Deir ez-Zor, the Syrian Army, with the help of its allies, has been managed to reach the city.

The stunning victory is a sign of the rapidly changing fortunes in Syria’s war.
