<p>After Iraq upset Japan 2-1, there was going to be another unexpected outcome within 24 hours, but Yazan Al-Arab’s late intervention at the Al Thumama Stadium stopped it.</p>
<p>Jordan and South Korea, coached by former US coach Jurgen Klinsmann, have four points from their first two Group E matches according to the draw.</p>
<p>Defending champion South Korea, which hasn’t won a championship since 1960, got off to a strong start. Within five minutes, Ehsan Haddad fouled Son in the vicinity. Following a four-minute VAR review, the captain of Tottenham scored from the penalty spot.</p>
<p>After 37 minutes, Park Yong-woo headed a corner into Jordan’s goal to tie the score. Yazan Al-Naimat’s goal six minutes into first-half stoppage time gave Jordan the lead.</p>
<p>91st minute: South Korea’s pressure paid off. Son brought the ball back into the area for Hwang In-boom, but Al Arab turned the midfielder for Red Star Belgrade’s low shot into his own goal.</p>
<p>Bahrain will face Malaysia in Group E later. Each team’s first game resulted in defeat.</p>
<p>The four best-performing third-place teams join the top two teams from each of the six groups in the pre-quarterfinal.</p>
