Jordan Vs India: Build-up
Igor Stimac had set up a number of games for his players in preparation for the Asian Cup Qualifiers. This game is the last international friendly they intend to play, having already battled the likes of ATK Mohun Bagan and I-League All-Stars.
However, their last game against Zambia was called off due to Zambia’s unavailability of players. That obviously led to a disruption in the training phase. It will be interesting to see how the Croatian has conditioned his players to make the most out of this match.
India last scored in their international friendly against Bahrain through Rahul Bheke. Although they went on to lose that match, there were patches of brilliance shown by the Blue Tigers. Stimac will be hoping for his forwards to fire on all their cylinders, now that captain Sunil Chhetri is back to lead the line.
For Jordan, this is their penultimate friendly match. They play Australia on 1st June and then move on to the Asian Cup Qualifiers. Their campaign starts off against Nepal and they will be hoping to prep their squad to the best of their capabilities through these friendlies.
Coming to FIFA rankings, India are ranked 106th whereas Jordan are at 91. With a gap of more than ten places, India will be up against seasoned opponents and must look to nullify their threat.
