The Jordan Falcons will start their 2023 run by playing Saudi at home in Amman and away in Riyadh on November 26 and 29, for the group 3 matches.

The technical staff of the national team has settled on the issue of a foreign player who will be granted Jordanian citizenship to represent the Jordan Falcons at upcoming events.

One of the player’s strongest suits is power forward and playing center midfield.

In contrast, director of the women’s national team, Faisal Al-Nsuor, believes that training is going well, pointing to the need to improve the fitness of players with coach Ahmad Samer. 

Nsour said: “There is daily training based on the physical and technical aspects of the players. And we aspire to give a great image of women’s basketball in Jordan.”

Nsour added that the level of runners up in Group 2 of the Asia cup seemed to be very close.

On reducing the list of players on the women’s team, Nsour said: “We have called out 21 players, and there are a number of players who have withdrawn from participating in this stage for different reasons, and we will keep 14 players who are taking part in the training and will be listed according to the circumstances of each match.”

Regarding the foreign player who will be granted citizenship, Nsour said that the player who will represent Jordan Falcons has been chosen, noting that “we chose the foreign player who will be a remarkable addition to the team, having a high level of technicality.”
