    Poor tackle from behind by Odunlami as Jordan win a free kick from 30 yards. The hosts are called for a foul following a puch on a Nigerian defender. Have the goals dried up for this game? So far nothing seems to be working for both sides

    SubstitutionOghenekaro Etebo B. Imenger

    Another substitution for Nigeria: Barnabas Imenger in for Oghenekaro Etebo. It's a straight swap, forward for a forward as Keshi chases an equalizer in this game
  • 68'
    Agbim almost put himself in trouble with a mis-placed pass to a Jordanian attacker but Ifeanyi Edeh gets there in time to block the shot and save his goalkeeper's blushes

  • 63'
    Uzoenyi does well to dribble past his marker but does poorly in giving the final pass inside the box. He is swiftly subsituted by Ifeanyi Edeh for the first Nigerian change in this game

    Youssef with an opportunity to threaten the Nigerian box but his cross is not properly connected as the visitors clear and counter attack.
  • 56'
    Sunday Mba's shot from inside the Jordanian box just misses the goal. Lots of intention from the visitors now
  • 49'
    Lots of activity in the middle now, this contest has been helped by that goal. Both teams going for it now
  • 46'
    Nigeria restart this game with hopes of equalising after going behind in the first half courtesy of Hatem's penalty. 
  • Share your thoughts with us about the first half. Were you impressed with Keshi's team? What do they need to do to get back into this encounter?

    Half time call by the referee with Jordan going into the tunnel with a key lead. 
  • 45' + 1'

    Penalty Goal Hatem Aqel
  • 42'
    GOAL! Captain Hatem shoots to the top right hand of Agbim's goal to open scores for the hosts
  • 41'
    Penalty!!! Jordan win a penalty after Obiozor stopped Yousef in his stride. A soft call, I dare say. 
  • 37'
    Yellow Card Uzochukwu Ogonna
  • 37'
    Yellow card to Uzoenyi for a poor tackle from behind on his opposite number. 
  • 36'
    Some fine play from Nigeria who have hugged possession in the last two minutes comes to an end as Benjamin Francis is brought down for a free kick on the left of the Jordanian goal. Etebo's kick is cleared off the line by the host's goalkeeper from Ugonna's close range shot. Lucky escape for the hosts this time

    It's difficult to see how this Jordanian team will get past Uruguay in their play-off game because thus far, they have not shown much invention in going past this Nigerian B Team.
  • 24'
    Solomon Kwambe and Azubuike Egwuekwe have been solid so far in the Eagles' defence. 
  • 22'
    Obiozor makes a quick run then turns back towards the goal and shoots just wide of the Jordanian goal. Surely he's been one of the lights in this match. 
  • 19'
    Jordan are using this game to prepare for their 2014 World Cup qualifying play-off against Uruguay while Nigeria's B Team is preparing for their first showing at the African Nations Championship in South Africa next Januray. 
  • 17'
    Some information: Jordan's coach is former Egypt striker Hossam Hassan, who was joint top scorer at the 1998 Africa Cup of Nations in Burkina Faso. He won the trophy that year and in 2006. His opposite number Stephen Keshi won the Afcon in 1994 as a player and then as a coach in 2013. 
  • 14'
    Another quick burst of pace sees Etebo win a free kick but Mba's first touch is not able to keep Uzoenyi's cross down as the hosts clear once more. Nigeria growing in confidence now. 
  • 12'
    Forward Obiozor Christian has shown some brilliant glimpses in the last two minutes, winning a corner kick and then a free kick. Uzoenyi's kick into the box is headed out for a corner kick

    Yellow Card U. Ejike

    Jordan win a free kick in front of the Nigeria area after Egwuekwe felled his opponent. The kick is blocked by the Nigeria wall as we wait for the first real opening in this game with the hosts dominating possession thus far.
