Iraq vs Jordan LIVE MATCH

Iraq and Jordan meet at the Khalifa International Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar on Monday for a clash in the round of 16 of the 2023 AFC Asian Cup.

With three wins from three in Group D, Iraq cantered into the knockout stages in emphatic fashion. The Lions of Mesopotamia began their campaign with a 3-1 defeat of Indonesia, before a stunning 2-1 win over heavyweights Japan. In their final group fixture, Iraq beat Vietnam at the death in a thrilling 3-2 win to maintain their perfect record.

For the ninth time in a row, the Middle Eastern side has reached the knockout stages of the competition, and will now be aiming to go one better than last time by reaching the quarter-finals.

Jordan finished third in Group E after collecting just four points. The Chivalrous Ones began the competition with a 4-0 drubbing of Malaysia, and then held Asian giants South Korea to a 2-2 draw. However, they surprisingly suffered a defeat to Bahrain in their last game as Abdulla Helal’s strike condemned them to a 1-0 loss.

Fortunately for Jordan, their goal-difference was the best among all the third placed sides in the competition, and they reached the last-16, their second consecutive appearance at this stage of the cup.
