Amman: The Indian football team went down 1-2 to Jordan in an international football friendly, an improved second-half performance failing to salvage a draw for the visitors here. This was a climbdown for Stephen Constantine’s men weeks after holding World Cup-winning coach Marcello Lippi’s higher-ranked China to a goalless stalemate. The 97th ranked India, though, were without their talismanic striker Sunil Chhetri, who was ruled out of the game due to an injury. The journey to the Jordan capital from New Delhi was also far from smooth for the Indian players, many of whom were left stranded at Kuwait City airport as flash floods in this part of the world disturbed the flight schedule.Read More | England aim to end ‘fantastic’ year with win vs Croatia in Nations CupGoalkeeper cum captain Amer Shafi on Saturday put Jordan ahead with a free goal in the 25th minute.
