JORDAN OUT TO SECURE FINALS SPOT
Oct 09, 2017
Jordan are just a win away from securing their spot in the 2019 Asian Cup finals in the UAE, and it can come on Tuesday against Afghanistan.
The match is being held in neutral Tajikistan, due to the security problems in Afghanistan, so it will kick off at 1pm Jordan time, with the Nashama looking to book their place in the finals for the fourth time (2004, 2011 and 2015).
The team currently top of Group C with seven points, followed by The Philippines on five points, Cambodia on three and Afghanistan with just a point. The team arrived in Tajikistan on Saturday and has been put through its final paces by Head Coach Abdullah Al Musfir.
The top two from each group will qualify, but Jordan will be wanting to win the group to improve its tournament ranking.
A total of 24 teams will be taking part in the finals.
