Al Bzoor's header 11 minutes before half-time set the Jordanians on their way before second-half substitute Bawab made the points safe six minutes from time.

The hosts began brightly but had to wait until midway through the first half for the first opportunity of note.

Guvanchmuhamed Ovekuv capitalised on a mix-up in the visiting defence to latch onto Vyacheslav Krendelev's cross from the left but could not direct his effort on target.

The deadlock was broken at the other end after 34 minutes when Turkmenistan goalkeeper Baramniyaz Berdiyev failed to deal with a corner and Al Bzoor nodded into the unguarded net.

Odai Al Saify struck the crossbar in the second half as the visitors exploited the gaps which appeared as the hosts sought an equaliser.

Bawab put the result beyond doubt in the 84th minute when he turned in Al Saify's low cross from the right.

The win was Jordan's first in the pool following their 1-0 defeat to North Korea. Turkmenistan remain winless after their 4-0 opening loss to South Korea.
