In a little over two weeks, Jordan’s footballers will bid to reach the Olympic Games for the first time through the final qualifying tournament in Qatar.
And the U23 team appears to be in good shape following a 1-0 victory over North Korea in a friendly played at The Sevens Stadium in Dubai.
The team played well, and deserved victory through Ihsan Haddad’s goal in the 76th minute.
“The players did what they needed to do and followed out game plan. I’m satisfied on their performance and looking forward now to doing well at the Asian Cup.” Abu Abed, Jordan coach, said.
The team will meet North Korea again on Thursday with the coaches expected to test out some more players before deciding on their final line-up for the Qatar tournament which starts on January 12.
