AFC Asian Cup 2023: Jordan vs Qatar – Build-up
Jordan and Qatar lock horns at the Lusail Stadium on Saturday in the final of the AFC Asian Cup 2023. Having only narrowly managed to progress from Group E, finishing in third place with just four points in three games, Jordan have surpassed expectations in the knockout rounds by defeating the mighty South Koreans.

After winning all three of their group matches, the Maroons cantered into the knockout stages, where they beat Palestine in the round of 16, before seeing off Uzbekistan 3-2 on penalties in the last eight and defeating Iran 3-2 in a mouthwatering clash. The hosts will give their all to retain their continental title for sure.
