Jordan, Singapore settle for draw 

Amman: Jordan played to a goalless draw with Singapore in an international friendly match at Amman International Stadium on Saturday as both teams prepare for their respective Asian Qualifiers' campaigns.

Jordan had the better of the chances but failed to find a way past the Singapore defence.

Abdallah Al Attar and Ward Al Barri saw their efforts go wide in the opening minutes while Nooraldeen Al Rawabdeh also failed to find the target when he broke through just before the half-time break.

The Jordanians continued to dominate in the second period and they nearly opened the scoring four minutes in through a header from Bahaa Faisal, who again came close in the 57th minute with his effort from the edge of the box.

Jordan, who opened their Asian Qualifiers Group B campaign for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar and AFC Asian Cup China 2023 with a 2-1 win over Chinese Taipei on September 5, host Kuwait on Thursday and Nepal five days later.

Singapore are on top of Group D with four points after two matches and will be aiming to maintain their run against Saudi Arabia at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Buraydah before hosting Uzbekistan at the National Stadium five days later.
