Paraguay vs Iraq[edit]

This match caused controversy as the referee, Edwin Picon-Ackong, blew the whistle for half time a split-second before Iraq striker Ahmed Radhi's header hit the back of the net, and the goal was ruled out. Picon-Ackong received a lot of criticism for blowing the whistle when Iraq had such a big goalscoring opportunity.[1]

Iraq vs Belgium[edit]

This match caused controversy as referee Jesús Díaz gave a yellow card to Iraq's Basil Gorgis in a case of mistaken identity (the yellow was supposed to be given to Ghanim Oraibi) while the score was 2–0 to Belgium. Gorgis sarcastically applauded Díaz's incorrect decision which led to Gorgis getting sent off and Iraq lost 2–1.[2]
