Brazil and Iraq are playing a friendly in Sweden! Why? Well, for no great reason. Both teams are going to make money off of it. Iraq aren't going to think playing Australia is that tough after they struggle in this match. Brazil are going to feel really good about themselves for beating up in Iraq. Five-figures worth of very cold people will be happy. None of these are great reasons for this game to be a thing. There's a pretty sick Iraqi contingent in the stands in Malmö, though.
Iraq starting lineup: Noor Sabri; Khaldoun Ibrahim, Ahmad Ibrahim Khalaf, Husam Kadhim, Ali Bahjat Fadhil, Muthana, Khalid, Ahmed Yasin, Nashhat Akram, Amjad Radhi, Husam Ibrahim, Walid Salem
Iraq's coach, if you didn't know, is Brazilian legend Zico ... oh, that's why this game is a thing. You can catch it at 2:30 p.m. ET on GolTV in the U.S. or Canada.
