Jordan U23 striker confident to thrash Vietnam

Despite knowing that Vietnam U23 is one of the best teams at the AFC U23 Championship, Jordanian players believe in a victory in the following game.

Striker Yazan Al Naimat was one of the most impressive players of Jordan U23 team in the first match against DPR Korea. He scored the opening goal by winning the penalty kick in the last minutes of the first half, helping his team take advantage of the game.

However, he would have made his team gain an easier victory if he had scored in one-on-one situations against the goalkeeper of the DPR Korea U23 team.

The 20-year-old striker missed two times, so he does not want it to happen again in the second match against Vietnam U23. Al Naimat's teammate Abu Ismael also thinks the same.

From his perspective, Al Naimat needs time to perform better, but he should prove himself before the runners-up of the 2018 AFC U23 Championship. By winning the game, he can show his talent as one of the best young strikers in the tournament.

Moreover, it is also the only way to win Vietnam U23, because Golden Stars will not let him have many chances to score as DPR Korea did before.

In the history of AFC U23 Championship events, Jordan U23 met Vietnam one time in the 2016 tournament. At that time, they beat the team guided by coach Toshiya Miura by a 3-1 score, which made VFF decide to sack the Japanese manager.
