Palestine to play Pakistan in October friendlies

After much speculation it has been confirmed that Palestine will play Pakistan in two friendlies on the 14th and 16th of October, respectively. The friendlies were first reported by our friends over at Football Pakistan and then confirmed on FIFA's website.

In preparation Jamal Mahmoud has already organized a couple of training sessions with 15 WBPL players invited to take part. A further five players based abroad are expected to make the trip to Pakistan but those names have yet to be released.
