Jordan’s football team will be looking for nothing less than three points when they entertain minnows Afghanistan in a crucial 2019 Asian Cup qualifier on Tuesday night.
Jordan lead Group C with four points after a win over over Cambodia and draw with Vietnam, while Afghanistan are bottom of the group.
The team has returned from a training camp in Bahrain where coach Abdullah Al Mesfer, said his team showed great cohesion and levels of fitness.
“We must win against Afghanistan,” he said.
“The camp has helped us to focus. We won’t be underestimating them so it was important for us to get away as a group. A win will keep us top of the group and in good shape to qualify.”
The match will kick off at 8pm in the King Abdullah Stadium.
At the same time, Cambodia will host Vietnam. The top two from the group will qualify through to the next phase.
