Squad to face Jordan announced



Jamal Mahmoud has revealed a list of 27 players called up to face Jordan on August 6th in Amman. As expected many of Palestine's stars based in Europe and South America will not make the trip because the friendly does not fall on a FIFA date. That said, the squad does include four players plying their trade abroad: Ramzi Saleh (Smouha/EGY), Mohammed Samara (El-Dakhliyeh/EGY), Ismail Amour (Al-Muharraq/BHR), and Murad Isamail (Wehdat/JOR).

The friendly also sees first time call ups for Khader's Rami Musalmeh, Thaqafi Tulkarem duo Mu'ath Mustafa and Thaer Jabour, as well as Ittihad Khan Younes phenom Eid Akawi.

Making their returns to the national side after lengthy absences are Mohammed Samara and Ahmed Harbi.
