Al-Ram: Head coach Noureddine Ould Ali has announced a 25-player Palestine squad in preparation for their match against Saudi Arabia in Group D of the Asian Qualifiers.

After scoring a stunning 2-0 win against Uzbekistan, Palestine suffered a 2-1 defeat to Singapore in a blow to their qualification hopes for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and AFC Asian Cup China 2023.

Ould Ali is counting on home ground advantage when Palestine host Saudi Arabia at Faisal Al Husseini International Stadium in Al-Ram on Tuesday.

However, Ould Ali will be without the services of forward Oday Dabbagh, who suffered an injury playing for his club Al Salmiya in Kuwait while midfielders Mohammed Rashid and Mohammed Darwish were left out from the squad.

Palestine are currently second in the Group D standings, behind Singapore who will meet Saudi Arabia on Thursday.
