AP: Brazilian football teams plan to play in West Bank in November




The Associated Press is reporting that Flamengo and Corinthians will play an exhibition match on Palestinian soil this coming November. The article also states that this will be the only match played and no plans have been made to play in front an Israeli audience.

The match means some famous players will be playing on Palestinian soil. Flamengo's ranks boast World Cup winners (and Manchester United bust) Kleberson and Zé Roberto. Everyone's favorite Qatari also plays for the Rio de Janiero side along with popular party animal and motivation lacking superstar- Adriano . Corinthians, boast some serious star power as well, including the likes of the pie-eating machine that is Ronaldo alongside young hotshots Lulinha and Detinho.
