(MENAFN - Jordan Times) Jordan stunned Australia 2-1 in a 2014 World Cup qualifier Tuesday, dealing a serious blow to the Socceroos' hopes of reaching the tournament in Brazil.

Jordan, which has never reached a World Cup and is ranked 87th in the world, opened the scoring courtesy of a 50th-minute penalty from Hassan Abdul Fattah.

Jordan doubled its lead in the 72nd when Amer Deeb found his way past the defence and scored the winner.

Australia pulled a goal back in the 85th, when Archie Thompson stole the ball just outside the area and fired a low shot past diving goalkeeper Amer Shafi.

With the victory, Jordan moves into second in Group B behind Japan with four points.
