Palestine drawn in Group B of 2023 Asian Cup Qualification

Palestine will play their qualification matches in Mongolia as they attempt to qualify for their third successive Asian Cup finals. 

Palestine will kickoff qualifying on June 8th against hosts Mongolia followed by a match against Yemen on June 11th. Their final game- which Palestine will hope is a mere formality with no bearing on their qualification hopes- will be against Philippines on June 14th. 

The congested schedule will present a unique challenge for Palestine and all the other teams involved in qualification. Moreover, with only three games being played- as opposed to the originally slated six- there is no margin for error. 

Palestine has a record of 5 Wins, 1 Draws, and 3 losses against the teams in their qualifying group. They have never faced Mongolia before but have plenty of experience playing Yemen- having faced them three times since 2019.
