Jordan Women’s Football Team Reaches the Asian Cup Finals



So this is the first piece of good news coming from Jordan in like what… three years? More?

We qualified for the 2014 AFC Women’s Asian Cup for the first time in history after beating Uzbekistan 4-0 to make it three wins out of three in our group. Our record is 100% :) We will join Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Australia, Japan, China and Korea Republic in Ho Chi Minh City in May 2014.

I’m really proud of our women’s team, who kicked Kuwait’s ass 6-0 after only 20 minutes, going on to annihilate them 21-0. That’s approximately one goal every four minutes. You can sit back and enjoy the kick-ass show the ladies put here:

Thank you, ladies, for finally giving me something to smile about in this depressing, consistently-going backwards country of ours.

Fingers crossed that the men’s team will also kick ass today. I think it’s safe to say that we as Jordanians need something to be proud/happy/excited about.
