Jordan’s Impressive Performance Against Australia in the U23 Asian Cup

The Jordanian team impresses in their match against Australia in the opening of the Asian Cup.

Abdullah Abu Zema, the technical director of the Jordanian Olympic team, said that his players’ performance in the opening match against Australia in the U23 Asian Cup was tactically excellent, as the match ended in a goalless draw (0-0). In the post-match press conference, Abu Zema pointed out that Australia has distinguished players and capabilities.

He added that his team relied on a diverse tactical strategy, where it succeeded in effectively organizing its defense in the first half, then turned into a multi-faceted attack in the second half, which provided several scoring opportunities but were not exploited as required.

He pointed out that the Jordanian team faced challenges in the final minutes after the expulsion of their captain Daniel Afana, but he expressed his satisfaction with the overall performance and the result.

Abu Zema confirmed that the main goal was to win the match, but he pointed out the difficulty of the opening matches and their weight. He expressed his confidence in the ability of the available alternatives to compensate for the absence of Afana in the next match against Qatar.

Regarding the injury of his player Mohammed Abu Al-Nadi, Abu Zema confirmed that there is no need to worry and that he will be ready to participate in the next match against Qatar.

He expressed his wish that the tournament would be held during a period that coincides with the FIFA match stoppage, considering that this would contribute to raising the level of the tournament from a technical point of view.
