Kuwait defeated Jordan in an international friendly in Cairo as they stepped up preparations for the start of next month's 2011 AFC Asian Cup qualifying campaign.

Mesaed Nada missed a penalty early on for Kuwait, who took the lead through substitute Mohamad Jarragh's free kick.

Amer Deeb levelled for Jordan, but Yousef Nasser scored the winner.

Kuwait ended the match with nine men after the dismissals of Talal Al Amer and Khaled Al Qahtani.
