Jordan took control of its World Cup qualifying group with a 2-1 win over China on Tuesday.
Baha Abdul Rahman put the hosts ahead in the 49th minute with a powerful shot after Abdullah Deeb's pass before Amer Deeb added the second six minutes later as China pressed forward in search of an equalizer.
Hao Junmin pulled one back in the 57th when he caught goalkeeper Amer Shafee by surprise with a shot that went through the defensive wall, but Jordan held on for the win.
Jordan has six points from two games and is three points clear of China at the top of Group A. Iraq has three points, while Singapore is without a point.
