"We have done our utmost preparation for the next match, because tomorrow's match will be a very crucial match for our team. We have prepared well. As you said, there is a special flavour in this match between two friendly countries - Palestine and Jordan - but I hope it will be a good match and that we will manage the win and the qualification, God willing, as one of the best third place teams, or even second best."
7. 01:26 Palestine head coach Noureddine Ould Ali
8. 01:32 SOUNDBITE: (Arabic) Noureddine Ould Ali, Palestine head coach:
"For us, we will play against Jordan as if we are playing in the final of the tournament, for the coach but mostly for the players. I spoke to my players after the match against Australia. All the players spoke and expressed their readiness to make the necessary sacrifice to qualify, which would be historical."
Palestine trained in Abu Dhabi on Monday, preparing for their AFC Asian Cup Group B meeting with already qualified Jordan.
They may currently sit bottom of the group standings, but a win over Jordan would see the 'Lions of Canaan' progress to the knockout stage for the first time in what is their second appearance in the Asian Cup finals.
Noureddine Ould Ali's side have one point from their two group matches - the same as Syria, with whom they shared a goalless draw in the two nations' opening fixture.
Australia - 3-0 winners over Palestine in the second round of group fixtures - are second on three points, with Jordan top on six following back-to-back victories.
Even a draw may be enough to see Palestine through to the round of 16, with the four best third place finishers from the six groups also advancing.
