“We have made our objectives clear to the players and they have accepted the challenge,” Jordan Basketball Federation (JBF) President Mohamed Alayyan told Jordan News.

“We have started exerting more effort to organize a series of friendlies with a number of strong, reputable teams to aid preparations,” he added.

Commenting on the identity of Jordan’s new naturalized player, Alayyan said the team’s technical committee has yet to choose one of three shortlisted candidates.

“We will choose the player who best fits into the team’s offense formation and our future objectives. His name will be announced once the paperwork is done.”
