A scrappy match that did not rise to great heights. We struggled for composure especially after we went a goal down early in the second half. Some lax defending saw Jordan add a second late in the piece. As Postecoglou says, one to learn from.

We slip to second in our group, behind Jordan who have three wins and a draw. Looks like the two of us will duke it out for top spot and automatic progression to the next round. Finishing second is not the end of it, as the best-placed four of the eight runners-up also proceed. However other groups also have second-placed teams doing well so it would be best to avoid this. That said, we have an easier time of it in the second half of our matches: three are at home and the away match is to Bangladesh. So 12 points are there for the taking. The crucial match will be the return fixture against Jordan. Might try and get along to that one.
