With the two wins, Jordan are now in prime position to reach the next stage. 

They are currently top of Group A with six points, ahead of Iraq and China with three points each. Jordan will next travel to play Singapore, who are bottom of the group, on October 11 before meeting them at home on November 11.

JFA president Prince Ali bin Ali Hussain, who is also FIFA vice-president, was pleased as he spoke to local media about the national football team's performance.

He said: "I am happy with the results achieved in the first two matches. It proves that Jordan football is in great condition and the national team can progress more in the qualifiers,

"The team should be cautious and not be complacent as the next two matches against Singapore are important to reach the fourth round."
