Vital Borkelmans announced a 28-member Jordan squad for their double friendly against India on November 17th and Saudi Arabia on November 20th to be held at the King Abdullah Stadium in Amman.
Jordan is coming off a 1-2 loss against World Cup runners-up Croatia, before which they had played goalless draws against Albania and Oman.
Despite being ranked lower than India, the Blue Tigers cannot take the Middle-East nation lightly as they would have the home advantage. Moreover, India has an abysmal record against the senior teams of the Middle-Eastern countries.
Their trouble doesn’t end there as they are grouped alongside UAE and Bahrain in the group stages of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. If a Chhetri-less side can come out of the fixture unscathed, India’s morale would be boosted immensely.
