Palestine's Asian Cup preparation begins to take shape

With less than 150 days to go until the Asian Cup starts Palestine's preparations have begun to take shape.

Palestine's first litmus test will be the Peace Cup, a four team tournament hosted by the Philippines featuring Chinese Taipei and Myanmar. Palestine will be reunited with two teams they beat en route to claiming the 2014 AFC Challenge Cup title and Asian Cup qualification. In Chinese Taipei,  Palestine will face a team they famously obliterated 8-0 during 2006 World Cup qualification.

The tournament has been organized so that Palestine and Philippines meet with the title (potentially) to play for. Palestine open play on September 3rd against Raddy Avramovic's Myanmar before facing Chinese Taipei and Philippines on September 6th and 9th, respectively.
