Palestine to Face Chechnya Next Month

The national team is currently in Amman, Jordan, after returning from Brussels.
According to the PFA, the squad will head to Istanbul on Tuesday for a 10 day training camp in which they will face a Turkish first division side.

The stated purpose of the camp is to prepare for the friendly vs non-FIFA affiliated Chechnya on June 6, which will be played in the Palestinian territories.

The squad heading for Turkey is pretty much the same except for the notable absences of Fahed Attal, Majed Abu Sido and Fadi Lafi, presumably due to club obligations.
A closer look at the article linked above will reveal the inclusion of Sharif Adnan, the Faisaly defender notoriously left out of the Challenge Cup squad. Speaking of notoriety, Ezzat Hamza is still in charge.
