Jordan Team News
Jordan are close to securing a spot at the World Cup. They will enter this window with probably their strongest team as their preliminary list features all of their top foreign and domestic stars, so they will be a force to be reckoned with and shouldn´t be underestimated in the games against the Philippines and New Zealand.
Other teams including Philippines don´t have their best rosters, which is a good chance for Jordan. They are currently second in the group, four points inside the qualification zone but could still be eliminated. After a strong showing at the Asia Cup, it would be disappointing if they failed to reach the WC with their best team.
Philippines Team News
Philippines have a better h2h record than Saudi Arabia, so two wins against Jordan would put them in a strong position and back in the fight for a qualification spot. However, even if they fail they are already guaranteed to appear at the World Cup as the hosts. That is the primary reason for Gilas Pilipinas switching rosters and players in almost every window, which resulted with the team underperforming.
For this window they have put together a pretty formidable team with a couple of very skilled centers along with good shooters and some promising college stars. Just before this clash they were hit with bad news that one of their experienced leaders Kiefer Ravena will not be able to play after undergoing surgery.
Jordan vs. Philippines Prediction
Losing one if its top scorers due to an injury is a tough blow for the Filipino team that will also be without Jordan Clarkson. They do have some talent that should keep them competitive, but overall, the hosts seem too powerful at home with Dar Tucker, Freddy Ibrahim and John Bohannon.
