Lilian Thuram in Palestine

The most capped player in France's history is on a three-day trip to Palestine, he kicked off his tour of the country today by visiting a UNRWA school in the Qalandiya Refugge Camp. He will later inaugurate the new 9,000 seat stadium in Al-Bireh, on the outskirts of Ramallah, that was partly financed by France, Germany, and FIFA.
