There was no Kim Pan-gon magic either.
Malaysia, led by coach Kim Pang-gon, lost 0-4 in the first match of Group E of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup against Jordan held at Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah, Qatar on the 16th (Korean time).
Was it the limit of being ranked 130th in the FIFA rankings? Malaysia, which reached the Asian Cup finals on its own for the first time in 44 years since 1980, fell to Jordan without any effort.
On the other hand, Jordan was one step ahead in the race for second place in Group E. Aces Al Tamari and Al Mardi’s multiple goals and Al Naimat’s multiple assists shone.
Malaysia started with goalkeeper Hazmi, followed by Davis, Eldstall, Cools, Wilkin, Ayman, Pasail, Corbinong, Halim, Lok and Morales. 카지노사이트랭크
Jordan started with goalkeeper Abu Laila, Nasib, Al Arab, Al Rawabdeh, Olwan, Al Tamari, Al Naimat, Al Mardi, Al Ajalin, Al Rashidan, and Haddad.
Malaysia struggled against Jordan’s offensive throughout the first half. In the 13th minute of the first half, they gave up the first goal thanks to Al Naimat’s heel pass and Al Mardi’s amazing mid-range shot. It was a wonder goal, so much so that it can be said to be the best goal of this tournament as of now.
In the 18th minute of the first half, a foul was committed on Al Naimat and a penalty kick was awarded. Al Tamari took the kicker and finished without failure.
Malaysia was unable to counterattack even when down 0-2. Rather, in the 25th minute of the first half, Olwan and Al Naimat linked up, and Al Tamari’s shot resulted in their third goal being conceded. Fortunately, it was offside and canceled.
However, in the 33rd minute of the first half, Al Tamari conceded an additional goal to Al Mardi, who received a pass from Al Naimat. The score is 0-3. Malaysia counterattacked with Wilkin’s mid-range shot in extra time in the first half, but ended up falling behind 0-3 and heading into the second half.
Malaysia put Jordan behind a lethargic first half and pushed Jordan from the second half. Jordan, who was in no hurry, easily blocked Malaysia’s offensive.
In the 62nd minute of the second half, Eldstall’s header pass was connected to Morales’ shot. However, Al Arab cleared it in front of the goal. Three minutes later, Jordan cut off Malaysia’s pursuit with Olwan’s mid-range shot.
Malaysia attacked Jordan, who had begun to lose concentration in the second half. In the 81st minute of the second half, they took advantage of a miss by the Jordanian defense and attempted to score a goal with Josue’s cannonball shot, but it was blocked by Abu Laila.
Malaysia, who missed the opportunity to score, ultimately allowed their fourth goal without being able to overcome the crisis. Al Tamari succeeded with a sensational shot that went past Hazmi.
Unlike the first half, Malaysia gave chase in the second half. A turnaround in performance is a clear benefit. However, in the end, they suffered a crushing defeat and bowed their heads.
