Jordan’s U19 football team has qualified for the Asian Cup finals that will be held in Indonesia in October next year.
The youngsters beat Syria 2-1 at the Prince Mohammed Stadium in Zarqa to book their spot, despite going behind to a 54th minute strike from Mohammad Al Hallaq.
But Mohammad Al Zubi leveled for Jordan three minutes later before Omar Hani scored the vital winner in the 72nd minute. Jordan won Group E to go through, beating Syria and Palestine and drawing with Iran.
It is the eighth time they have qualified with their best achievement coming in 2006 when they finished fourth.
