Great to see and he will get more chances under Rangnick as well. His pressing style favours young players. Unfortunately Iqbal has opted to play for Iraq rather than Pakistan!

Can you blame him though? Our government doesn't give a crap about football.

Take your racism elsewhere. A lot of people in Balochistan are of Arab descent.

Makes sense

Pakistan is banned by FIFA because our football is headed by clowns. What else do you expect?

Dont blame him. Further with Iraq he actually has a shot at playing in at least the Asian Championships and in the latter stages of the WC qualifiers. With Pakistan he will unfortunately be playing in SAARC Games only.

However don’t take away the fact he is a *Proud* Pakistani, a lot of his insta stories etc are about him being Pakistani etc. a lot of iraqis online are acting weird by claiming he’s only Iraqi under posts of iqbal becoming the first south Asian to play for Man Utd and somewhat mocking Pakistan.
if it was up to him he would’ve chosen Pakistan, but imo he should’ve waited and play for England.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghayas_Zahid who is of Pakistani origin is from what I heard actually the first south Asian cl player. However I don’t know how true that is.
