China beat Jordan in World Cup qualifier

Guangzhou, China:

Midfielder Hao Junmin scored the opening two goals to set up China's 3-1 consolation win over Jordan in Wednesday's World Cup qualifier.

There was little at stake in the game, with China unable to progress to the next round of qualifying and Jordan already through.

Hao, the former Schalke midfielder who now plays for Shandong Luneng, opened the scoring in the 43rd minute and doubled that advantage in the 69th.

Jordan pulled a goal back through Basem Fathi in the 85th minute but Yu Dabao made sure of the win in the 88th.

It was another disappointing qualifying campaign for underachieving China, finishing behind Jordan and Iraq in Group A.
