Malaysia and Jordan have established a new rapport in football following the establishment of a rapport between the two nations as a result of a visit by His Royal Highness Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah to the kingdom earlier this month.

Jordan has a strong national team which is currently participating in the Asia Cup in Doha. Jordan drew 1-1 with Japan in its first Group B match and will face Saudi Arabia on Jan 13.

During the visit, HRH Tengku Adullah was granted an audience by His Majesty King Abdullah ll Ibn Al Hussein in Amman, Jordan on Jan 9.

His Majesty King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein thanked HRH Tengku Abdullah, the Deputy President of FA Malaysia, for his support towards his brother HRH Prince Ali Ibn Al Hussein, who won the FIFA Vice President’s post in the recent AFC Congress in Doha.

HRH Prince Ali, the President of Jordan FA, defeated incumbent Dr. Chung Mong-Joon of South Korea, who held the post for 16 years.

Malaysian football can benefit much from this new collaboration. This new rapport may signal a new era for football in Malaysia as the nation looks for more opportunities to improve and learn from countries with a good football structure, like Jordan.

The audience also marked the establishment of a rapport between the Royalties of Jordan and Pahang.
