The Caltex Socceroos have been drawn into Group B for the AFC Asian Cup 2019 to be held in the United Arab Emirates.
As reigning champions, Australia will face the first tests of their title defence against Syria, Palestine and Jordan.
Here's our look at Jordan, their prospects of creating trouble and how they'll hope to fair at next year's tournament.
HOW THEY QUALIFIED
After finishing as runners-up to Australia in the Second Round of qualifying, thus missing out on direct qualification, Jordan were force to navigate their way through the Third Round.
They did so with few large problems, notching big home wins over Cambodia and Afghanistan and remaining unbeaten across their six fixtures.
Despite a frustrating run of draws, Jordan have been largely impressive since a 1-0 loss to Iraq last June.
They have suffered only a single defeat in the 12 matches since - edged 2-1 by Finland in a home friendly in January.
AFC ASIAN CUP HISTORY
The 2019 edition will mark Jordan's fourth excursion to the AFC Asian Cup.
Though underwhelming in 2015 - finishing third in Group D after losses to Iraq and Japan - they did reach the Quarter Finals in both 2004 and 2011.
ONE TO WATCH
Angelos Chanti only debuted for Jordan in December after clearance from FIFA, but the Greece-born midfielder could soon become a key player.
Versatile, rangy and comfortable on either wing, the Greece-born player has currently turns out for Aris and looks likely to provide creative spark.
Meanwhile, forward Hamza Al-Dardour finished among the top scorers in qualification with nine and looms as a headache at the back.
Following Harry Redknapp's ill-fated stint in charge, former national team assistant Jamal Abu-Abed has return to take over the top job.
He previously led Jordan's youth teams and enjoyed a long international career for his country, eventually retiring in 2003.
HISTORY AGAINST AUSTRALIA
Australia's first meeting with Jordan arrived in a FIFA World Cup qualifier in Amman in 2012, when the Caltex Socceroos received a rude shock in a 2-1 defeat.
They repeated the dose with a 2-0 victory in October 2015, although Australia did notch 4-0 and 5-1 wins in the reverse meetings during those campaigns.
HOW FAR CAN THEY GO?
Jordan beat an experimental Denmark team 3-2 in a non-FIFA friendly in January.
While there was nothing riding on the match, it did live up to the country's penchant for upsets, of which Australia has previously fallen victim.
While the potential for a run deep into the tournament remains unknown, they should be expecting to escape the group stage.
