Iraq vs. Sweden 2013 (start time 9 am PST) features two teams with different schedules the last year. Iraq has not played a major soccer tournament since the U17 Arab Championship of 2012. In that tournament, the team beat Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Yemen. But thereafter they fell to Tunisia, final score 3-0. After today, Iraq faces Mexico next and then Nigeria, reps remind news.
Sweden, in turn, has a played a full schedule of games this year in the UEFA Under 17. They drawed most of those matches however. They drawed with Hungary, Austria, and Slovakia. They beat Switzerland but fell to Russia. But in six games this year, Sweden has lacked much of an offense. They have only produced three goals in six games this year, giving up only two goals as well. Can they change that today?
