Barakat announces preliminary squad to face Tajikistan


Palestine manager Abdel Nasser Barakat has revealed a list of 27 domestically based players set to take part in a training camp ahead of next month's friendly vs. Tajikistan.

Headlining the list are defender Alaa Abu Saleh- the former Bnei Sakhnin captain and fellow Sakhninite midfielder Hamad Ghanayem who are among 11 Shabab Al-Khaleel players to be included in the list. These two players could prove to be valuable additions to the national team- with over 400 Ligat Ha'al games under their belt.

Former Chile U20 striker Rodrigo Gattas is also in the squad for the first time along with six other Hilal Al-Quds players- the second largest contingent in the side. 

Players plying their trade abroad are expected to be called up on the 30th of this month. With the game against Tajikistan due to be held in Dora, it seems the FA has scrapped plans to train in Algeria for logistical reasons.
