Australia VS Jordan World Cup LIVE Football Score 15 June 2021
Now, he will want his Socceroos side to continue their ruthless streak as they take on Jordan in another World Cup qualifier. Their 3-0 victory over Nepal over the weekend, which came off the back of two comprehensive victories over Chinese Taipei and Kuwait, means the Socceroos have already qualified for the next round of World Cup qualifying and sealed top spot in Pool B.
They take on Jordan more 18 months after their 1-0 victory, which came from an Adam Taggart goal in the 13th minute. But having won seven straight matches in 24 years with their recent victory, Arnold will be out to make it a clean sweep in their pool to assert their dominance and make a statement.
With 21 points taken from a possible 21 since the first ball was kicked, Arnold’s side are one of only three AFC teams – the others being Syria and Japan – to have their 100% record still intact, and the Socceroos are in no position to let that slip on the final day.
While their upcoming opponents Jordan could only draw 0-0 with Kuwait last time out, Australia confirmed their first-placed finish by easing to a 3-0 success over 10-man Nepal, as Hertha Berlin’s Mathew Leckie notched up his fourth goal of qualification before Fran Karacic and Martin Boyle made sure of a comfortable win.
Having scored 27 goals at the correct end of the pitch while shipping a mere two in their defensive third, Australia’s dominance of Group B has been evident ever since their maiden victory over Kuwait all the way back in September 2019, but a spot in Qatar 2022 is not wrapped up just yet.
The Socceroos already know three of their potential opponents for the third round in Syria, Japan and South Korea, and wrapping up the second round with a convincing win over Jordan would be a perfect way to keep the momentum going before September’s battles commence.
Jordan were blessed with an extra man for the final 30 minutes of their tie with closest challengers Kuwait on the penultimate matchday, but they were unable to make their advantage count as the tie finished goalless on June 11.
