    Erbil, the Iraqi football club, will take on Kuwait's Qadsia in the final of the AFC Cup.

    The match should've been played in Iraq but has been moved to Dubai due to security concerns.

    Erbil's journey to the final has been impressive given the fact that they have been forced to play away from home due to the situation in Iraq.
