Olympic Team Update

Last week the Olympic team hosted Tunisia who became the second country to play in Palestine. The game ended 3-0 in favor of the Tunisians. Despite the loss, it seems that development of the Olympic team has been made a priority by Moussa Bezzaz who has taken it upon himself to coach the team. The team will face-off tomorrow against Jordan with a squad similar to the one that was sent to slaughter against Iraq's first team in July.

Atlas Sport is reporting that Palestine's Men, Women, and Olympic teams will face off some time next year. These reports are yet to be confirmed, however, by either the Palestinian or Tunisian FAs.

[UPDATE]: Palestine defeats Jordan 2-1 goals coming from Ashraf Nu'man and Ahmad Khweis. More to follow...
