Jordan needed an equaliser four minutes from time to avoid a humiliating defeat against minnows Afghanistan in their Group C qualifier for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.
Jordan looked to be cruising at half-time after Monther Abu Amara and Odai Al Saify put them into a 2-1 lead in the match played in Tajikistan.
But the Afghans, bottom of the group with one draw prior to the match, scored twice to lead 3-2 and looked to be heading for a rare win before Mohannad Al Souliman, who had earlier scored an own goal, saved Jordan’s blushes for a point.
Jordan still top the group, but are level on eight points with Vietnam who beat Cambodia 5-0.
Jordan’s next match is in Cambodia on November 14 when a point will be enough to book their place in the finals in UAE in January 2019.
