Jordan 2-0 South Korea: Jordan makes history by reaching Asian Cup final after beating South Korea


Son Heung-min did not even manage a single shot as Jordan beat South Korea to reach the final of the Asian Cup 2023 for the first time.

Jordan reached the final of the Asian Cup for the first time in history with a deserved 2-0 win over South Korea in Qatar.

Second-half strikes from Yazan Al Naimat and Mousa Al-Taamari ended the hopes of Son Heung-min and his teammates at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium on Tuesday.

Jordan dominated from the start, with near misses from Hwang In-beom and Lee Jae-sung – and a penalty rightly overturned after VAR review – all rallying pre-tournament favorites South Korea. The son didn’t even have a wound.

The quality of Al Naimat and Al-Taamari shone through and Jordan, backed by loud support, will now face Iran or holders and hosts Qatar in Saturday’s final.
