BAGHDAD - The German Football Federation (DFB) delivered on Tuesday sports equipment and supplies as gifts to two local Iraqi teams during a ceremony held at the German Embassy in Baghdad.

German Charge d'Affaire Hans-Juergen Bubendey delivered the gifts to Iraqi football trainers Nizar Ashraf and Ammar Abdel Hussein, both of whom had spent last September training with their teams in Germany.

Bubendey told Deutsche Presse-Agentur, dpa, that the gifts represented another form of strengthening sports relations between Iraq and Germany.

Bubendey described the relationship between the DFB and its Iraqi counterpart since the fall of the former regime as "strong and friendly."

Ashraf said two local teams, al-Zawraa and al-Karkh, will be given the German gifts.
