[UNDER-20 WORLD CUP] Iraq pulled another surprise when it beat Egypt, 2-1, to move to the top of its group on goals scored at the Under-20 World Cup in Turkey.

Mohanad Abdulraheem's goal in the 79th minute gave Iraq the comeback win three days after it had scored twice in the last 15 minutes to tie England, 2-2, in its first game.

After Day 2, Spain is the only team to win its two games and to be assured of a place in the final 16 at the Under-20 World Cup.

The results mean that four points alone might not be enough to secure one of the four third-place spots in the knockout stage.
