Like their Iraqis counterparts, the Jordanians show no awkwardness on plastic surface, despite the earlier grouse by their coach Adnan Hamad over the surface like Zico did earlier.

With two more goals that came in the second half as the result of swift attacking plays from the visitors, it all but over for the Singapore dream in their World Cup quest.

Speaking at the post-match press conference, Assistant Coach V.Sundramoorthy (pictured above): “I think we did not take our chances and it is important at this level to convert chances when you have them. I think with time, with these young boys, we have a future. We have three games left and mathematically, if we get maximum points from the remaining games, we will still have a chance.”
Adding on, he said:“We are developing this team and they are a young team. We started the game positively and should have minimised our mistakes. The players fought till the end and they tried their best.”
Jordan’s Head Coach Hamad (pictured above) said: “I am very happy that the team played well and got a good result. And we are closer to the fourth round now. We respect the Singapore team and that’s why we played a good game. The players deserve the result.”
