DOHA - Jordan captain Hatem Aqel could
miss the remainder of the Asian Cup in Qatar after injuring
his knee in his side's opening 1-1 draw with three-times
Aqel, 32, left the field on a stretcher after going into a
challenge with Japanese skipper Makoto Hasebe during the
second half of the opening Group B match on Sunday and was
seen leaving the stadium in a wheelchair to go for an MRI scan.
"It is not feeling good as I am in a lot of pain right
now," said Aqel, who plays for Saudi Arabian club side Al Raed.
The loss would be a huge blow to Jordan's hopes, with the
tall defender producing a stellar performance to keep
favourites Japan at bay for most of the game before the Blue
Samurai equalised in stoppage time when he was off the field.
