King Abdulla II ibn Al-Hussein of Jordan invited a street cleaner at his royal palace to watch the special private viewing of Thursday's Asian Cup game match between Jordan and Syria, during which Jordan routed Syria 2-0. 

The Jordanian monarch invited Khalid Al-Shomali who was seen in a picture standing outside a cafe peering through a glass window to catch a glimpse of a previous match, according to Almowaten.

The picture which showed the worker in his uniform went viral on social media websites.

Jordan now totals 6 points and tops its group from two matches after stunning Australia 1-0 in the first match.

The street cleaner appeared in a photo as he was seen sitting between King Abdulla II and Crown Prince Al-Hussein bin Abdulla II.
