Australia lose in Amman while Kagawa bails Japan out against Syria

Australia were downed 2-0 by Jordan in Amman on Thursday night.

The halfway stage of the second round of qualification for the 2018 World Cup was all about the big boys from East Asia -- Japan, South Korea, China -- and beyond (Australia) travelling significant distances to face mid-level West Asian teams away from home.

Two won and two lost in an exciting night of Asian football. There was little to smile about in Amman for Australia as the men in green and gold lost in their second successive visit. The Socceroos crashed in Jordan in qualification for the...

Jordan surprise Australia in World Cup qualifying as Japan, South Korea win

ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik questions whether Australia might have been a bit complacent heading into in their AFC World Cup qualifying loss against Jordan.

Jordan scored twice in the second half to upset continental champions Australia 2-0 on Thursday and move to the top of Group B in the second round of Asian qualifying for the World Cup.

The result, in front of a passionate home crowd in Amman, gave Jordan a one point lead over the Socceroos with four games remaining.

Jordan's pace troubled the Asian Cup winners for most of the game and the hosts took the lead two minutes into the second half when Hassan Abdel Fattah blasted a penalty high into...

Despite two losses in three matches, Afghanistan cannot be taken lightly, with 14 of Slaven Skeledzic's players plying their trade in the lower leagues of Germany....

Syria and Singapore stand in way of mighty Japan in World Cup Group E

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and John Wilkinson discusses Singapore's upcoming World Cup qualifier against Afghanistan at National Stadium on October 8th.

Here's a strange thought: when the second round of qualification for the 2018 World Cup reaches the halfway stage on Thursday, it could see Singapore level on points with Japan in Group E.

And here's something stranger: by the end of next week the Lions could be three points clear of the Samurai Blue. It's still a long shot, but as goalkeeper Izwan Mahbud showed in June in Saitama when the Lions grabbed a famous goalless draw, Singapore can handle shots, both short and long.

Those two points dropped...

Singapore head coach Bernd Stange indicated that he was targeting qualification for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup after having his contract extended until April of next year.

Football Association of Singapore (FAS) ended speculation on Friday by announcing that the German would stay for at least another six months.

The decision comes after the Lions' solid start to their 2018 AFC World Cup campaign, which doubles as qualifiers for the next Asian Cup in United Arab Emirates.

Singapore are third in Group...
