With the Qlamqtar 2022 world cup only about 14 periods away (depending on your own set of menstrual circumstances), I’m going to be answering all the burning questions leading up to the tournament. Today, I take a look at Syria, aiming to qualify for their maiden World Cup.
Just didn’t worship hard enough in 2018 Qualifying
FIFA Ranking: 80
In 2017, Syria faced Australia in the 2018 AFC World Cup Qualifying playoffs. Late in extra time of the second leg in Sydney in October 2017, the Syrians trailed 2-1 but needed just one more goal to send them through to the final qualification playoff against Honduras. Awarded a free kick about 35 yards from goal, Omar Al Soma along with his teammates, took a moment to pray for direct intervention from Allah. Sadly, Al Soma struck the base of the post and the ball ricocheted away from goal, and only a few seconds later the referee blew the final whistle, giving Australia the victory. This could only mean one thing: the Syrian team were just not good enough Muslims and in those moments before the free kick did not worship hard enough. Otherwise Allah would’ve definitely nudged Al Soma’s strike 10 or so inches to the left.
One to watch: Allah Almighty
Will Allah just be cool this time and grant the Qasioun Eagles their wish for World Cup qualification? Keep an eye on His bright light for a response, and if not, then okay, yep, okay, blah blah blah, once again it’s part of his divine plan and yes He is great and Syria will just have to try qualify in another 4 years, in sh’Allah.
