The Iraqi national team player, Ibrahim Baish, was crowned the best player in the 25th edition of the Arabian Gulf Cup, which concluded yesterday in Basra, Iraq.
Baish led his country to win the tournament for the fourth time in its history, after scoring the first goal in the final match that saw Iraq defeat Oman 3-2 yesterday.
Baish’s goal was his second in the tournament, after he had previously scored against Saudi Arabia in the group stage, a match that Iraq won 2-0.
His team mate, striker Ayman Hussein, was named the tournament’s top scorer with three goals.
Hussein scored two goals against Yemen in the group stage (Iraq won 5-0), and scored a goal against Qatar in the semi-finals (Iraq won 2-1).
On the other hand, Ibrahim Al-Mukhaini, the goalkeeper of the Omani national team, won the best goalkeeper award in the tournament, as he performed admirably in the tournament, and was one of the reasons for his team reaching the final match.
