The Jordanian Football Association announced the exclusion of Hamza Al-Dardour from the “Al-Nashama” squad in the Asian Cup for disciplinary reasons.
The Jordanian Federation said in a statement that Al-Dardour’s exclusion came “after he violated the team’s internal controls and instructions.”
Exclusive clip…what you have never seen before…
Hamza Al-Dardour went to celebrate in front of the Iraqi bench after Jordan’s second goal (the equalizer), and this angered Jordan’s coach Hussein Amouta, as he pushed him.

The Jordanian Federation did not clarify further details about what Al-Dardour did, while a video clip of the player pushing a group of members of the technical staff spread on social media.
Jordanian coach Hussein Amouta seemed to blame Al-Dardour and push him for celebrating away from his team’s substitutes’ bench, which angered the player who pushed more than one member of the assistant staff.
The Jordanian national team achieved an achievement by turning a deficit into a 3-2 victory over Iraq, thanks to two goals in stoppage time, to reach the quarter-finals and have a date with Tajikistan next Friday.
The 32-year-old Dardour, who played more than 100 matches with the team nicknamed “Al-Nashama,” did not participate against Iraq, while he appeared as a substitute in two matches in the ongoing Asian Cup tournament.
