LADIES LOOK TO BOUNCE BACK AGAINST THAILAND
Apr 08, 2018
Jordan will be looking for goals tonight to bounce back from their tournament opening defeat at the 2018 AFC Women’s Asian Cup being held in Jordan.
The ladies take on Thailand at the King Abdullah Stadium having lost their opener to The Philippines 2-1, despite an impressive performance in front of a packed house.
A defeat would make Jordan’s chances of clinching one of the World Cup qualifying places unlikely in Group A, so coach Michael Dickey knows the high stakes going into this match.
“We had a disappointing defeat in the opener,” he said.
“But we have been working on how to retain the players’ confidence so that they are raring to go for the next match against Thailand.”
Thailand lost their opener to China, and will be keen to win after reaching the last World Cup in Canada in 2015.
