Absolutely but it is certainly worth collecting a brief list anyway, precisly to avoid those problems in future - e.g. if you were to publish the definitive list of full internationals for Iraq, and then in 50 years someone going over the work finds another match that they think you had missed, then your work could lose authority. That's why I think it's preferable to report everything (with appropriate classification, footnotes, whatever). Apart from that there is also the aspect of commerorating the efforts of players in those years - they played many more matches than were counted as official, and it is a shame if these unofficial games are not mentioned at all.

Iraq played five matches, a select team from Habbaniya, Basra, two matches in Turkey and one other match in Baghdad against a Syrian side. Iraq won two matches, drew one and lost 2. The matches were all played in April/May 1951.


In RSSSF I found:
02.05.1951 Basra Basra XI - Iraq 1-1
06.05.1951 Izmir Turkey B - Iraq 7-0
12.05.1951 Ankara Ankara XI - Iraq 7-5

What's about exact date and final score of the other two?
??.04.1951 Habbaniyah Habbaniyah XI - Iraq ?? (Iraq won).
??.04.1951 Baghdad Iraq - Syrian Side (what Side?) ?? (Iraq won).
