Palestine risk seeding at AFC Asian Cup by scheduling Bahrain Friendly

Last week, we published an article in regards to permutations of next month's draw for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.

At the time, it seemed the PFA had made a wise decision not to list its friendly against Bahrain in FIFA's record.

Based on that information, Palestine stood a good chance of climbing into Pot 1 and avoiding Asian heavyweights Iran, Japan, Australia, and Korea Republic.

At the time of writing, Palestine are risking a spot in Pot 1 which is now predicated on other results going their way (even in the event of two wins). Moreover, should they lose both games they will drop into Pot 3 and could be handed a very tough group at the Asian Cup Finals
