AMMAN - Sixty-two places separate Australia and Jordan in FIFA's world rankings, but a win for the Socceroos in Amman tonight is far from a formality, according to coach Holger Osieck.
Following their 3-0 trouncing of Lebanon last week, Osieck's men are in a confident mood ahead of the World Cup qualifier, where Australia could take a giant leap towards a place in Brazil in 2014.
One of three teams on two points in Group B, a win in Amman would put Australia in a commanding position, particularly with three of their last four matches to be played at home.
Standing in their way is a Jordan side anchored to the bottom of the section, but one that will be difficult to conquer, according to Osieck.
"They play, at times, some very, very high level football," said the german at the pre-match press conference.
