Jordan have won the West Asian Football Federation U23 Championship after beating hosts Saudi Arabia 3-1 in the final at Prince Mohammad bin Fahd Stadium in Dammam on Tuesday night.

The Young Falcons had made a promising start and went ahead through Khaled Al-Ghannam’s goal at 20 minutes. However, the lead did not last too long, with Jordan equalizing through Yazan Al-Nuaimat at 28 minutes.

There were no further goals in the first half, and after the restart, the teams traded attacks with Saudi wasting several good chances to retake the lead.

But it was Jordan that would eventually go ahead, with Youssef Abu Al-Jazr scoring in at 76 minutes to put his team within sight of victory.

With time running out, the home team went all out for an equalizer, leaving themselves open to the visitors’ counter attacks. In the sixth minute of stoppage time, Mohammed Abu Rezeq killed off any Saudi hopes with a third to secure the trophy for Jordan.

The 11-team tournament was organized by the Saudi Arabian Football Federation and the WAFF.
