The Jordanian national team made history by securing a spot in the final of the 2024 Asian Cup for the first time ever, following a 2-0 victory over South Korea in the semi-finals.

The Nashama team achieved a remarkable 2-0 win over the South Korean team, marking a new milestone in their football journey.

Jordan dominated the first half and broke the deadlock in the second half with Yazan Al-Naimat scoring in the 52nd minute, followed by a goal from Musa Al-Taamari in the 67th minute to consolidate the lead.

The Jordanian team now awaits the outcome of tomorrow's match between Qatar and Iran to determine their opponent in the final, which will be held next Saturday at the Lusail Stadium on the 10th of this month.

Sports analyst Ahmed Al-Mallah told BBC, "This is the greatest achievement in the history of Jordanian football, showcasing an impressive presence despite the challenge posed by the Korean team. 

The Nashama team won convincingly, displaying offensive momentum and solid defense."
