With the Qlamqtar 2022 world cup only about 11 periods away (depending on your own set of menstrual circumstances), I’m going to be answering all the burning questions leading up to the tournament. Today, I take a look at Jordan, who are yet to qualify for a World Cup, coming closest in qualifying for 2014 when they lost in an intercontinental playoff.
Honouring the brave shahids who honourably lost their world cup hopes to the cyan enemy in 2013
Nickname: The Chivalrous
FIFA Ranking: 91 (Nov 2021)
On November 13th, 2013, a total of 17,370 people (most of them Jordanians) attended Amman International Stadium to see Jordan hopefully take a major step towards qualification for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Buoyed by its recent defeat of Uzbekistan in the Asian playoff, civilians innocently sat and watched as suddenly, in a 90-minute indiscriminate bombardment, their hopes of qualifying for the country’s first ever World Cup were killed, in a series of five decisive strikes by the eternal cyan enemy Uruguay. The majority of children’s, families’, and staff and players’ hopes were killed that night, with the remainder wounded (all of which would die a week later). The nation’s soccer team are yet to recover from the tragic event and to this day, children grow up dreaming of avenging the loss of those world cup dreams and exacting brutal vengeance on the cyan enemy.
One to watch: Anyone wearing the light blue colours of its eternal enemy
Locals strongly advise to stay clear of anyone adorned in light blue, drinking Matcha tea or openly praying to their God Luis Suarez. These are the signs of their oppressor, the Cyan enemy who annihilated their 2014 World Cup dreams and to this day continue to occupy their nightmares.
