LIVE BLOGGING: Palestine vs. Kyrgyzstan

Can't provide specifics, but at halftime the score stands at 1-1. Kyrgyzstan went ahead thanks to a penalty by Murzaev Mirlan in the 21st. 7 minutes later Saed Al-Sobakhi in his first start for Palestine and only his second official cap fired Al-Fursan back into the game.

THE SECOND HALF BEGINS

Nothing new to report... this has to be the most frustrating way to follow a football game.

30 minutes until full-time... win and you're in scenario. A scoring draw of 2-2 or more would leave us with only a glimmer of hope at being the best 2nd place team. But let's channel all our energy into getting a winner.

20 minutes... Wouldn't it be great to get a goal in the dying seconds of the game? That would be true poetic justice for our 2006 defeat.

84' Yellow cards are being handed out for time-wasting, looks like Kyrgyzstan is squeezing the life out of this one.

FT: 1-1. Ouch. More to follow later....
