Palestinians to host Saudi Arabia in West Bank for World Cup qualifier

May 10, 2015 16:20

ZURICH - Saudi Arabia will travel to the West Bank to face the Palestinians in a World Cup qualifier in June, the head of the Palestinian Football Association told Reuters on Sunday.

"I have just received a message from the Saudis saying that they are coming, it's a great show of support," PFA president Jibril Rajoub told Reuters in a telephone interview.

Three-times Asian champions Saudi Arabia, who have played at four World Cups, will be the highest-profile team to visit the Palestinian territories since they were authorized to play World Cup qualifiers at home in 2011.
