Altruism and sacrifice that are implanted in the Iraqi soul for the sake of the nation have reflected the considerable impact of progress, development and stability in society, education and in the Iraqi universities through standing up against the terrorist attacks and in defending our homeland, so the popular crowd remains always in the foreground to combat and resist the enemy as an embodiment of all the meanings of humanity for all freemen all over the world to be a symbol of pride as their leader Imam Hussein ibn Ali Ibn Abi Talib (PBUH). President of university of Baghdad, prof. Dr. Alaa Abdul Hussein stated that the heroes of our army are combating the terrorist gangs and evil forces in the contemporary history in a scientific event at Baghdad University when he honored some of the families of the martyrs of the popular crowd who sacrificed their souls.

Qualitative scientific book by our University

Many scientific literature, studies and researches are included in our prestigious university libraries that serve society and humanity and one of these literature is a book entitled “Introduction to modern football tactics” authored by the Chancellor Dr. Kazem Al-Rubaie, a former coach of the national football team and professor of physical sciences at the faculty of physical education which is a book which received the attention of many figures concerned with sports at the international level for dealing with new scientific theories in football, so that we will address the most important topics in detail.

The number of pages of this book is (180) where the first chapter gave a brief history on the evolution of football plans that form the basis of knowledge of the tactical action, while in the second chapter it talked about individual and collective defense tactics. Chapter III dealt with attack, renegade attack and the importance of playing on the wings whereas chapter IV was dedicated to offensive tactics requirements and weather conditions (rain and winds) and their impact on tactical applications and the playground nature also it included dozens of photographs and illustrations. The university website unit interviewed with the author, Dr. Kazem Al-Rubaie to enrich the subject and shed some light on the strong relationship between the theoretical and practical culture of football since the profession of football coaching is based on two influential facts that are scientific knowledge and field experience to be added to the distinctive talent and it’s not enough that the coach should be an academic professor without any field experience to be a successful coach.

The motives that led Dr. Kazem to write this book “Introduction to modern football tactics” are disinterest in the planning side by many coaches that inspired him to author this book in follow-up of previous literature by his fellow authors and the duration of preparation and writing of this academic achievement took him many years of practice as a player, coach in Iraqi, Arabian Gulf and European stadiums, clubs and national teams and as an academic expert and a professor at Baghdad University. The university website cared with this publication that was dealt with in during a special ceremony held by the Iraqi Trainers Association for signing this book attended by top Iraqi athletes, especially in football, including an article written by the journalist Menem Jaber in “people” newspaper that talked about a lot of preliminaries and details of that book and praised his efforts for supplying football players and fans with this literary composition.
