SECOND DRAW FOR U23 SIDE
Jan 13, 2018
Jordan’s hopes of reaching the quarter-finals of the AFC U23 Asian Cup in China are in the balance after being held to a second draw on Saturday.
The Olympic team shared the points with Malaysia despite taking the lead through Ward Al Barri in the 16th minute. Malaysia leveled two minutes before half time through striker Safawi Rasid.
It’s the second draw after Jordan threw away a two-goal cushion in their opening match against Saudi Arabia, and they know they will have to beat Group C favourites Iraq on Tuesday to guarantee their spot in the last eight.
