Jordan coach before the Asian qualifiers battle: We have to collect points
The Jordanian national football team has stepped up its technical and physical preparations, in preparation for facing its Nepalese counterpart, next Monday evening, at Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium in Kuwait, in the second group of the joint qualifiers. “Al-Nashami” conducted a training at the Kazma Club stadium, led by coach Vital Borkelmanns, based on the application of many tactical sentences, in the presence of all players. Vital stressed the importance of facing Nepal, and focusing on collecting the three points, before thinking about meeting Kuwait and then Australia, to ensure qualification for the decisive role. He added, according to the official website of the federation: “We have nine points to qualify, and the journey starts from Nepal. We realize the importance of meeting Kuwait, but first we have to reap the full points against next Monday, before looking at the next match.” The technical staff of “Al-Nashami” watched from the stands of Jaber International Stadium, the confrontation of the Australian team and its Kuwaiti counterpart, which ended with the victory of the first 3-0, to continue its lead in the group, while the Nepalese team crossed the Chinese Taipei station with a score of 2-0. The Australian team moved away from the top of the group with 15 points, with Al-Nashami remaining runners-up with Kuwait with the same balance (10), while Nepal settled fourth with 6, and Taipei finally without points. It is noteworthy that the eight group champions, in addition to the four best second-placed teams, qualify directly for the 2023 Asian finals in China, and for the decisive round of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in Qatar. The Jordanians rely a lot on their team in order to achieve the dream of qualifying for the World Cup Qatar 2022 and the upcoming Asian Nations, but criticism was directed at the Belgian coach because of his lack of reliance on a fixed lineup, and his results in the recent preparatory friendly matches.
