Jordan, who shocked the Socceroos in their opening game, continued their fairytale run by becoming the first team to reach the Asian Cup knockouts.
Meanwhile, the hosts closed in on a spot in the last 16 with an emphatic 2-0 win over high-flyers India.
Here’s a wrap of all the Asian Cup action!
JORDAN 2-0 SYRIA
Jordan, who defeated champions Australia in their opening game, continued their fairytale run in the Asian Cup.
Jordan won a bruising derby with Syria 2-0 to become the first team to reach the Asian Cup knockouts.
In a rowdy atmosphere at a packed Khalifa Bin Zayed Stadium, first-half goals from Mousa Mohammad Suleiman and Tareq Khattab gave Jordan a maximum six points in Group B with one game to go against Palestine.
BAHRAIN 0-1 THAILAND
Also in Group A, Thailand bounced back with a 1-0 win over Bahrain with interim coach Sirisak Yodyathai leading the team to victory in Dubai.
Yodyathai took the reins after previous boss Milovan Rajevac was sacked following the 4-1 thrashing by India in their opener.
Talismanic Chanathip “Messi Jay” Songkrasin hauled crisis-hit Thailand back on track by scoring the only goal to lift them to second in the group.
INDIA 0-2 UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
Khalfan Mubarak and Ali Mabkhout were on target for United Arab Emirates as the Asian Cup hosts beat India 2-0 on Thursday to close in on a spot in the last 16.
The Emirates, who salvaged a 1-1 draw in their curtain-raiser against Bahrain after a controversial late penalty last weekend, went top of Group A on four points from two games despite a hairy start in Abu Dhabi.
India, who finished runners-up on their Asian Cup debut in 1964, will still fancy their chances of reaching the knockout phase.
