Ali Madan scored in the final seconds as Bahrain edged Malaysia 1-0 in Group E of the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023 at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium on Saturday.

The win revives Bahrain’s hopes of advancing to the knockout stage, with the West Asian side to face Jordan on Thursday while the defeat ends Malaysia’s hopes, with the Southeast Asian side to conclude their campaign against Korea Republic.

In the meantime, Yazan Al Arab’s injury-time own goal gifted Korea Republic a 2-2 draw against Jordan in the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023 on the same day as Jurgen Klinsmann’s side escaped with a point from their Group E clash at Al Thumama Stadium.

Al Arab put the ball in his own net to level the scores and cancel out Yazan Al Naimat’s goal in first half injury time, which had looked set to earn the Jordanians the win and secure a place in the last 16 for Lhoussanine Ammouta’s side.

Al Naimat struck six minutes into time added on at the end of the first half after Park Yong-woo’s own goal had wiped out Son Heung-min’s early penalty but Al Arab’s own goal means both teams sit on four points after their opening two group games.

Korea Republic meet Malaysia on Thursday while Jordan will face Bahrain.
