Lebanon's preparations for the Asian Cup got off to a perfect start after they edged regional rivals Jordan 1-0 in an international friendly in Amman Thursday. In a closely contested match thatfeatured little goalmouth action, Lebanon required some individual brilliance from Hasan Maatouk and a fine finish from Omar Shaban to net the winner in the 77th minute.Mehdi Khalil was almost left red-faced when the Ahed goalkeeper misjudged Hussein Haddad's 50th minute cross before applying a belated hand to the goalbound ball.Jordan, despite 59 percent ball possession, had largely failed to convert this into crucial opportunities.The result was a brilliantly executed counterattack from Lebanon.
