Jordan filed an official complaint over the handling of Ahmed Hayel's doping test, which was not completed, following the Asian Cup match with Iraq on Monday.

"Ahmad Hayel arrived to the hotel after the doping test suffering from polar, semi-coma, general weakness, and hypothermia," the team said Wednesday.

The statement included a list of complaints about the testing environment. It complained that there was no medical presence from the Asian Football Confederation and that he was returned to the team hotel in a car rather than an ambulance.

Jordan also said Hayel vomited in the doping control room and had to be taken to his hotel room unconscious in a wheelchair, His condition puts him in doubt for their next Group D match, against Palestine on Friday.
