Palestine social media kit for the 2015 AFC Asian Cup

Palestine’s stunning display at the 2014 AFC Challenge Cup saw them through to their first international trophy win and, more importantly, their first appearance in the Asian Cup, the continent’s most prestigious football tournament.

The Palestinian national team landed in Australia early to prepare for their upcoming matches. The squad shares Group D of the 2015 AFC Asian Cup with Japan, Jordan, and Iraq.

A finish in either of the top two spots of the group will see the Palestinian national team through to the knockout stage.

Palestine is currently ranked the 14th strongest team in Asia by FIFA. Their recent success, which has made them the talk of the Asian Cup, came against all odds. Coach Saeb Jendaya, who took over the head spot in the run-up to the Cup, lost his home to Israel’s invasion of the Gaza Strip last summer. Many of the players face severe travel restrictions under Israel’s military law which has made it almost impossible for the entire team to practice on the same pitch.

Palestine has a tough road ahead. The following is the team’s preliminary schedule.
