Squad for Pakistan Tour & Challenge Cup camp

Mousa Bezaz has announced his squad for the two matches against Pakistan set to be played on March 1st and 4th in Lahore and Karachi, respectively. The team will leave (the seven Gazans in the squad already have, Ma'aly Kawre' was once again refused travel. So much for this PR bullshit by Rajoub) for Jordan on February 22nd.

The team will train in Amman before setting off for Pakistan on February 27th. Al-Fursan will hold a training camp in Kuwait to prepare for the AFC Challenge Cup. The training camp will run from March 5th to March 18th and will include an unofficial friendly against Kuwait on the 14th of that month. Before leaving for Myanmar, Bezaz is expected to call up additional foreign based players. Palestine's matches are set for the 21st, 23rd, and 25th of the month. Palestine will face Bangladesh, Myanmar, and the winner of the Philippines/Mongolia playoff (Philippines won the first leg on home soil 2-0, the return leg is slated for March 15th)
