Madness in the Asian Cup.. Palestine accompanies the UAE to the round of 16

Within the Palestinian national team, it secured its qualification to the round of 16 of the 2023 Asian Cup, for the first time in its history, after it won 3-0 over Hong Kong at the end of the group stage.

Palestine would have almost qualified from second place, had the UAE team not scored a goal in the final meters against the Iranian team, and despite the 2-1 loss, Zayed’s sons secured runner-up.

Fate was kind to Palestine when Hong Kong missed a penalty kick in the last minute. If it had been scored, it would have involved complex calculations so that it could advance to the round of 16.

Iran is at the top of the group with 9 points, and the UAE and Palestine are in second place with 4 points, with Al-Abyad having an advantage on goal difference, which qualifies it from second place and puts Al-Fidai third.

Due to occupying third place, Palestine will face either Australia or Qatar in the round of 16, while the UAE will set a date with Tajikistan.
