2023 AFC Asian Cup final: Score, result, highlights from Jordan vs Qatar in 2024 title match

The 2023 Asian Cup final is upon us and Qatar are aiming to win their second consecutive AFC title, but they have Jordan standing in their way.

Qatar have been the team to beat this tournament and are without a loss in their past 13 Asian Cup games, winning 12 of those inside 90 minutes.

While Jordan boast a relatively positive record against the reigning champions, having suffered just one defeat in their previous five encounters, with two wins and two draws in that run, Qatar remain a tough task for Hussein Ammouta’s side.

The unwavering support from Qatar’s home crowd has been consistent throughout the tournament and could potentially serve as the decisive factor in the final showdown.

The Lusail Stadium can host up to 80,000 and is the arena that saw Lionel Messi lift the 2022 World Cup trophy.

Qatar lead at half-time

The first half saw Qatar take a deserved lead through Akram Afif’s penalty conversion. It’s his sixth goal in the tournament.

Jordan have appeared somewhat disoriented at times, but Ali Olwan has been dangerous down the left side, delivering a few quality crosses. Jordan will need to push on in the second half and be sharper in front of goal if they’re to come back from this deficit.
