Football Olympic Qualifier: Taiwan 0 – 2 Jordan

Jordan scored off two free kicks in the 27th and 88th minute to win the game, and finished with an aggregate 3-0 in two qualifiers,

Focus Taiwan reported yesterday, in a surprisingly detailed article on last night’s Olympic qualifier in Taipei. Taiwan had lost 0 – 1 on the first leg, in Jordan. Just as then, the Jordanian team was clearly doing better than Taiwan’s.

One of the fans at the game, American Sophie Chao, said one of her friends started a Facebook page two weeks ago to promote the Taiwan-Jordan match.
Chao, who has been in Taiwan for six months studying Mandarin, said about 70 expatriates had attended the game after learning about it on the Internet and they tried to bring some excitement to the event.
