Jordan plays India, Saudi Arabia in friendlies

AMMAN — Jordan has two friendly football matches scheduled this month as the squad prepares the 2019 Asian Cup in the UAE.

Jordan will play India on November 17, and Saudi Arabia on November 20 within an internal camp before they leave to Doha to hold a training camp in which it will play Kyrgyzstan on December 20, Qatar on December 24 and China on December 28 in the final phase of preparations.

The Kingdom’s competitive edge is lacking and judging by FIFA Rankings it seems there will be a tough task ahead. Jordan last played two friendlies holding Albania 0-0 and losing 2-1 to World Cup runner-up Croatia.

Earlier last month, coach Jamal Abu Abed was relieved of his duty by the Jordan Football Association as squad’s competitive form looked doubtful following a 0-0 draw with Oman and a 1-0 defeat to Lebanon.
