Jordan writes history and qualifies for the semi-finals of the Asian Cup

The Jordanian national team achieved a historic victory over the Tajikistan national team with a score of 1-0 at the Ahmed Bin Ali World Cup Stadium in the quarter-finals of the 2023 Asian Cup.

The first half between the two teams ended in a goalless draw, and Yazan Al-Naimat was close to opening the scoring with more than one chance.

In the second half, specifically in the 67th minute, Al-Nashama’s only goal came from Abdullah Nasib, after a wonderful header from a corner that went into the Tajik national team’s net.

Thus, Jordan qualified for the first time in its history to the semi-finals and succeeded in untying the quarter-final knot that had dogged it throughout history.

Coach Hussein Amouta’s battalion will face the winner of the match between Australia and South Korea in the semi-finals, and the match will be held on February 6.

Jordan’s qualification may be surprising by all standards, given the state the team was in with Amouta before the competition.

Jordan did not win any official match with Amouta before the Asian Cup, and was content with a single victory over Qatar in a friendly match, and the last friendly match it lost by a score from Japan.

Now, the Moroccan coach has succeeded in turning the tide after qualifying from third place in his group, then beating Iraq in the round of 16, then beating Tajikistan and advancing to the semi-finals.
