The Goalkeeper


Brief History

Born on Feb. 14th, 1931 in the province of Nineveh of north of Bet-Nahreen (Iraq today), Isaac Y. Isaac discovered his passion for sports in the elementary schools and quickly this interest resurrected a talent that unveiled one of the best goalkeepers our teams trusted between the posts.


With his proven talent at the schools' tournaments in Mousel and Kirkuk cities, his election for the IPC Iraq team was inevitable. 

He then was elected to join the Assyrian Arsenal Team in the 1st division and picked as the MVP player of that year. In 1952 he was selected in the Iraqi Army team that registered Iraq's first National win, which led the way for his placement in the Assyrian National.


He earned the position of the keeper of the Assyrian National team of 1956 which registered many International wins in the area especially their memorable win over the Taj of Iran Club in 1956.


He he was appointed a referee position in the Kirkuk Soccer Association in 1955 were he excelled to be awarded a referee's position in the Iraqi Soccer Federation from 1965 – 1970.


In 1971, he took on another challenge, as he received an honorary scholarship for apprenticeship for coaching that led to his head coach position with the Labour Combined of Kirkuk Team.



As he arrived in Canada, the Assyrians of Toronto were enthusiasts to form a team to represent them and found no better than Coach Isaac to lead them in to victories in 1981.


His most current accomplishment is a completed novel entitled “Sports In  Mesopotamia”, which includes:
A brief history of the game of Soccer and the physiological, physical, and psychological components that precede the success of the sport and athletic performance.


His writings are fundamental to the Assyrian community as the novel is targeted to it in both script and illustrations.
