Jordan has arrived in Sydney with coach Harry Redknapp vowing to “go for it” as they look to pull off another famous win against the Caltex Socceroos.
Redknapp and his squad touched down at Sydney Airport on Saturday morning ahead of Tuesday night’s winner-takes-all FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifier at Allianz Stadium.
The world number 82 ranked nation – who beat the Socceroos 2-0 in Amman in October – crushed Bangladesh 8-0 on Thursday to start Redknapp’s tenure with a bang.
But the 69-year-old former West Ham, Portsmouth and QPR boss knows things will be much tougher against Ange Postecoglou’s lethal side.
"We know it's going to be a much tougher game in Australia, we understand that," Redknapp told reporters on arrival at Sydney Airport.
"It's got the makings of a real good game. We need to win, so we've got to be going for it.
"We'll have to start well because they'll be a big crowd, great atmosphere.
"And we've got to make sure we come out as ready as we were to compete [against Bangladesh] and play the way we played."
Redknapp knows all about Australia players, having coached the likes of Robbie Slater and Stan Lazaridis at West Ham, while also handing Massimo Luongo a Tottenham appearance back in 2011.
Asked about the current Socceroos squad, Redknapp said: "Obviously the captain I know, (Mile) Jedinak from Crystal Palace. He's real good.
"I know a few of the lads. Brad Smith as well, he's done well for Liverpool."
Redknapp, who is also a technical advisor at Championship club Derby County, signed a two-game deal with the Jordan Football Association, which expires after Tuesday’s match.
He said he was open to extending the deal if Jordan can get a result against the Socceroos which sees them progress to the next stage of qualifying.
With the Socceroos currently two points clear of the Arab nation, a win or draw will be enough for Australia to advance, while the four best second-placed teams across the eight groups will also move through.
