National Team captain Ramzi Saleh has announced his participation at the upcoming Challenge Cup boosting Palestine’s title hopes. Ramzi Saleh will also be joined by Yarmouk striker Alaa Attieh (3 goals in five games since joining the club), and Arab Contractors Midfielder Mohammed Samara.
It was revealed that Jamal Mahmoud had attempted to secure the services of Abdelatif Bahdari, Majed Abusidu, and Imad Zatara but was rebuffed by their club sides. Due to the Challenge Cup’s non-status as a FIFA-affiliated competition clubs are not required to release their players.
Jamal Mahmoud has announced the addition of ex-Al-Am’ary midfielder Houssam Wadi. The Shejaeya man is the only Gaza-based member of the squad and will be making his first appearance for the National Team since 2014 World Cup qualifying.
