VARIOUS OF JORDAN SOCCER TEAM TRAINING, AND HARRY REDKNAPP STORY: Harry Redknapp took charge of his first training with the Jordan national team at Amman international Stadium in the Jordanian capital on Monday (March 21). The former Tottenham Hotspur manager was seen talking to Abdullah Abu Zema, former coach of the team and a member of the technical team of Jordan, and having a look at the first training of his new team. He also went to talk to the group of goalkeepers of Jordan and gave them some instructions. The 69-year-old Redknapp will combine his mentoring role at second-tier England club Derby with managing Jordan in this month's World Cup qualifiers against Bangladesh and Australia. Redknapp has told British media that he had agreed to help out at the request of Jordanian FA chief Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, who lost the FIFA Presidential election to Swiss Gianni Infantino last month. Jordan will play Bangladesh in Amman on March 24 and the Socceroos in Sydney five days later. The Jordanians trail Australia by two points in Group B in the second round of Asian qualifying for the 2018 World Cup with the top two from each group going through to the third round, when four berths in Russia will be at stake. Redknapp's fellow former QPR manager Ray Wilkins last year led Jordan to the Asian Cup in Australia, where they were eliminated in the group stage.
