AMMAN — Jordan plays Vietnam at 1:00pm local time on Sunday in Round 2 of the 2019 Asian Cup currently under way in the UAE.

The Kingdom topped Group B after it upset title holder Australia 1-0 in the opening match followed by a 2-0 win over Syria before holding Palestine 0-0.

Jordan’s coach Vital Borkelmans, who enlisted bench players in the third match notes his side is ready and the whole line-up is up to par as they prepare to play Round 2. “We do not underestimate any opponent and are ready to play any team,” he was quoted as the team practised on Saturday.

Vietnam which finished third in Group D advanced with difficulty and might be the easiest of opponents in this knockout round which will see the following matches: China vs Thailand, Oman vs Iran, Japan vs Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan vs Australia, Kyrgyzstan vs UAE, Bahrain vs South Korea and Iraq vs Qatar.
