The the second leg of the Uruguay vs Jordan (Jordania) Intercontinental Playoff will take place this Wednesday, November 20, 2013 (3:00 PM Pacific) at the Estadio Centenario in Montevideo. After winning the first leg 5-0, Uruguay is only 90 minutes away from confirming the last ticket into next year’s World Cup. On the other hand, Jordan will attempt to make a decent performance at the always difficult Centenario stadium to leave the qualifiers with their chin up.
The team coached by Oscar Tabarez won by a massive five goal difference in the first leg. Considering that the second leg is to be held in Uruguay, and the massive difference in talent between the two sides, Uruguay is only a signature away from being the 32nd, and final team to reach the World Cup. The ‘charruas’ were immensely superior in the first match, therefore there is no reason to doubt that they will win once again by a large goal margin, unless they purposely stop scoring goals throughout the game.
Jordan faces an unlucky situation because they had to travel many hours into Uruguay to play a game they know they have no chance of winning. Controversy was made after it was reported that seven Jordanian players wanted to reject the trip into South America, as they felt it was a waste to go play for a broken cause. Nonetheless, Jordan will play this Wednesday, and although they are almost eliminated, they will have the unique opportunity to face one of the world’s greatest teams, in one of the greatest stadiums on Earth.
Uruguay vs Jordan Prediction
The Uruguay vs Jordan intercontinental playoff will be a one-sided event in favor of the home team. Uruguay will be relaxed, confident, and in front of their fans, therefore there are no signs that Jordan will be capable of causing any harm. While it would be nice to see Jordan play to win, Uruguay has too much talent, and at the end the ‘charruas’ will be the last team into Brazil 2014. The Uruguay vs Jordan match will end in a 4-0 win for the home team.
