Palestine Host Thailand in Occupied West Bank In First Competitive Football Game For 50 Years

The Palestinian national football team took on Thailand in Ramallah on Wednesday, in the first competitive game to be held on Palestinian soil for more than 50 years.

Despite the result on the night, The Football Palestine blog points out that the game was attended by AFC President Muhammad Bin Hamam who is the key man in deciding whether Palestine will be able to play their home games on Palestinian soil.

The positives of the game were that Palestine did not back down. The crowd got behind them and they really put Thailand on the back foot.

The goal from Abu Habeeb was fantastic and he is one to watch for in the future. Khaled Jamal’s energetic performance deserved a goal, he held up play very well.

Individually, you can’t really pick out a player who underachieved.
