JORDAN BOW OUT OF WORLD CUP 2018 QUALIFIERS
Mar 29, 2016
Jordan found Australia a step too far as they lost 5-1 to be eliminated from the World Cup 2018 qualifications.
The Nashama needed a win to take Group B in this final match of the qualifying campaign, but the Socceroos ran out comfortable winners with three first half goals and two more scored after the break.
Abdullah Deeb, who was left out of the starting line-up, scored the goal of the game with two minutes to go for a late Jordan consolation.
It ended Jordan’s World Cup dream but, in finishing second in Group B, they have the chance to qualify for the 2017 Asian Cup in UAE via the next qualifying phase.
