Our title defense is off to a poor start as we succumbed to a disciplined Jordan 0-1. We didn't play too badly, but we can play much better than this. Jordan showed us how it should be done by sticking to their game plan and giving it everything. Our finishing was our undoing once again as we failed to convert our good moments.

The other match in our group finished in a draw, so we're at the bottom of our group. That said, we're not out of it by a long shot with two matches to play and some third-placed teams going through to the round of 16. Arnold will want a big improvement from his squad though.
