The Final round of group fixtures is here, today we will witness the match between Palestine and Jordan from Group B. They are placed along with defending champions Australia and Syria in the Group B.
Jordan have already qualified for the knockout stages of the AFC Asian Cup after beating Australia 1-0 in their opening encounter and following it up with a comfortable 2-0 win against Syria.
Palestine, on the other hand, enter the match with a single-minded focus – to win at all costs in order to progress.
For the first time ever, twenty-four nations will compete in the pan-Asian competition instead of the usual sixteen. As such two additional groups have been added and the two best teams from each group and the four best third-placed teams will progress in the tournament.
PLAYERS TO WATCH:
PALESTINE – Nathmi Albadawi
American-born Nathmi Albadawi will look to give Palestine – who are without the suspended Jonathan Zorrilla – control in the midfield after making only his second start in the loss to Australia. The 27-year-old will be part of FC Cincinnati’s debut MLS season after the Asian Cup.
JORDAN – Ahmad Ersan
With star man Mousa Suleiman ruled out having picked up two bookings in the tournament, Ahmad Ersan has the chance to impress for Jordan. The 23-year-old replaced Suleiman in the latter stages of the win over Syria and could be handed a starting role on Tuesday.
