Seventh Heaven for Jordan as they crush Cambodia

Jordan put a whopping seven goals past a hapless Cambodia in their 7-0 win in their Asian Cup third round qualifier on Tuesday.

The Chivalrous ran riot in front a boisterous crowd at the King Abdullah II Stadium in Amman, firing five goals in the second half to earn all three points available.

The result sees Jordan move to the top of Group C, followed by Vietnam and Afghanistan after their draw.

Hamza Al Dardour was in red hot form for the hosts, scoring a hat-trick. The striker opened the scoring in the 12th minute with a close range finish after his teammate’s shot was saved by Cambodia stopper Um Sereirath and he netted the rebound.

Al Dardour then had his brace after a superb solo goal where he rounded a hapless Sereirath just nine minutes later.

Things only got worse for Cambodia and Sereirath in the second half, starting with Yaseen Bakheet’s strike inside the penalty area that made in 3-0 in the 47th minute.

Bakheet turned from scorer to provider as his cross found an open teammate, whose header came off the post, but Odai Al Saify was on hand to shoot the ball home.

Substitute Ahmed Salah then found the back of the net and Al Dardour completed his hat-trick after some woeful Cambodian defence.

Mousa Mohammed would add insult to injury with a seventh goal in the 90th minute to cap off a dominant performance.
