AMMONNEWS - Four Jordanian football referees on Sunday cancelled their flight to Pyongyang to participate in a match between North Korea and Malaysia as part of the Asian qualifiers.

The [Jordan] Football Association said that it had received a notice that the match was cancelled, due to the escalation of tensions between North Korea and foreign countries, which led referees Adham Makhadmeh, Ahmad Munis, Issa Amawi and Ahmad Faisal to cancel their flight, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The recommendation in assigning the four Jordanian referees was made upon a request from the Asian Football Confederation, according to Petra.
