Hosts Jordan have been drawn in a tough Group for the 19th AFC Asian Women’s Cup taking place throughout the Kingdom from April 6-20 next year.
Jordan have been drawn with China, who have won the event more times than any other nation, Thailand and The Philippines. Group B includes holders Japan, Australia, South Korea and Vietnam.
The top two from each group will secure their place in the semi-finals, and also guarantee a spot for the next World Cup.
The two third placed teams will play-off for the fifth and final World Cup place available. Jordan hope to become the first Arab nation to qualify for the World Cup finals which were first held in 1991.
Also during the draw, the Asian Women’s Cup organising committee unveiled a new logo which consists of elements representing Jordan such as the Camel and Rababa musical instrument.
