An Iraqi man rests as his comrades play in a competitive soccer game as part of the Habbaniyah areas new soccer league, which was formed here recently. The players in the league come from the surrounding area where they all contribute to their community. Their occupations range from local Iraqi Security Forces personnel to local construction workers or farmers. Iraq?s love of football is no longer shared just over a televised event and some hot chai tea, it is now played in the open and for fun, said Kemal Musceff, a 26 year-old center fielder for the Jimaylan football team.
