Palestine still has a possibility to progress to the Round of 16 of the Asian Cup 2019. If that actualizes, it would be the first time in the history of the team to reach that level. 

Jordan, twice quarter-finalists in Asian Cup, in 2004 and 2011, stunned holders Australia in their opening game before beating Syria 2-0.

But they found plucky Palestine a tougher nut to crack in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday night.

Although finishing in the third place with two points, Palestine can still progress to the Round of 16, as one of the four best-placed third teams.
