Wolfgang Sidka dismissed as Iraq coach despite 2014 World Cup qualifying progress

The Iraq Football Association (IFA) has announced it won't be renewing the contract of national team boss Wolfgang Sidka.

The 57-year-old former Werder Bremen manager had been in charge of the 2007 Asian champions since August 2010 and last week guided Iraq into the third round of 2014 World Cup qualifiers after a 2-0 aggregate victory over Yemen.
