Jordan can make its first appearance at a World Cup if the team can continue to win. Despite being the underdogs against Uruguay, Jordan boss Hossam Hassan is urging his team not to be overwhelmed on the pitch.
"I don't even fear Brazil," Hassan said, via IB Times. "Those who aspire to the World Cup should be strong enough and do their utmost. We have a group of players that I trust. I urge them to seize this historic moment, do their best, act confidently and never give up.
"I have learned from my experience that nothing is impossible in football."
Jordan earned a spot in Wednesday's qualifier by winning a penalty shoot-out against Uzbekistan in September after finishing third in the fourth round of the Asian Football Confederation qualifying, according to Goal.com.
Uruguay, which made it to the semifinals in the 2010 World Cup, didn't play great during the South American qualifying; they failed to automatically qualify for the Cup after losing to Ecuador. Although Uruguay is the favorite to win, manager Oscar Tabarez is taking nothing for granted.
"If Jordan gives everything in order to take advantage of its status as the home team, it will make things hard for us, and I'm not being pessimistic or cautious," Tabarez said, via Goal.com. "They don't have any elite football players, but to make a match tough, that's not necessary."
Projected Lineups (via IB Times):
Jordan: Shafi; Fathi, Ali, Hashhash, Yaseen; Zahran, Deeb, Baniyateah, Sahim; Saifi, Ibrahim.
Uruguay: Muslera; Fucile, Godin, Lugano, Pereira; Perez, Rodriguez, Arevalo; Suarez, Cavani, Forlan.
