Qatar vs. Jordan Possible Starting lineups, Team news & prediction for AFC Asian Cup final 2023

qatar

Qatar look to defend their AFC Asian Cup title when they face Jordan in the final on February 10.

Neither side was favored to reach the final at the start of the competition, despite host nation Qatar holding the continental crown since 2019.

Managerial changes and a poor showing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup dented Qatar’s position in the region, but they responded brilliantly to the challenge of the tournament as Jordan found themselves in uncharted territory in their first ever finals appearance.

Team news

Jordan have not reported any injury concerns ahead of the final and could stick with an unchanged squad against Qatar.

Al Ahli striker Yazan Al-Naimat was a key star in the knockout stage with two goals in three games.

Qatar coach Tintin Márquez may have shuffled his options after the semi-final win over Iran, but key attacking duo Akram Afif and Almoez Ali will start.

Jordan (3-4-3):  Abulaila (GK) — Nasib, Al-Arab, Marie — Haddad,  Al-Rashdan, Al-Rawabdeh, Abu Hashish — Al-Taamari, Al-Naimat, Al-Mardi.

Qatar (4-4-2): Barsham (GK) — Miguel, Mukhtar, Mendes, Waad — Gaber, Al-Haydos, Fatehi, Mohamad — Afif, Ali.

Prediction: Jordan 0-1 Qatar
