Earlier this week, Iraq defeated Saudi Arabia in the Asian Cup Final.
In June, the United States won the Gold Cup (The North American Championship) defeating Mexico 2-1.
Both sides qualify for the 2009 Confederations Cup, an important World Cup tune-up tournament in South Africa, joining Brazil (South American Champs), Italy (World Cup Champ), South Africa (Host nation), the 2008 European, African, and Oceania champs. Teams are sorted through a blind draw.
20 bucks right now says the US and Iraq get drawn together.
