Redknapp is combining his job with Jordan with his role at Derby County

Harry Redknapp’s second game in charge of Jordan ended in a 5-1 defeat to Australia in 2018 World Cup qualifying.

The former West Ham, Portsmouth, Tottenham and QPR boss began his reign with an 8-0 thrashing of Bangladesh.

But two goals by Tim Cahill plus strikes for Aaron Mooy, Tom Rogic and Massimo Luongo sealed a comfortable success before Abadallah Deeb reduced the deficit on 90 minutes in Sydney.

Englishman Redknapp is only contracted for two games as Jordan boss.

Jordan had inflicted the only defeat of the campaign on Australia, who progress to the next round of Asian qualifying after topping Group B.

Jordan are second in the table and could still make it through.
