JORDAN OUT OF ARAB CUP AFTER EXTRA TIME HEARTBREAK
Dec 11, 2021
Jordan are out of the Arab Cup after losing their quarter-final match to Egypt 3-1 in extra time at the Al Janoub Stadium in the Qatari capital, Doha.
Jordan had finished second behind Morocco in Group C with 6 points from two wins over Saudi Arabia and Palestine, but suffering defeat to the group winners.
Jordan took a shock lead early in the contest thanks to a looping header from Yazan Al-Naimat.
But Egypt, one of the favourites for the title, levelled in first-half stoppage time through striker Marwan Hamdi. Still the Egyptians made hard work of the game, which went to extra-time.
With 100 minutes on the clock, Ahmed Refaat made the breakthrough before Marwan Daoud capped off the game one minute before the end of the contest. Egypt will now take on Tunisia in the semi-finals.
