Palestinians Abroad: Mustafa on the move, Keshkesh seals deal with Wehdat, Sharbini Bros. power Reijka in Europa League....

Daniel Kabir Mustafa, an Argentine defender very much on the radar of national team scouts has sealed a move to Spanish Segunda side SD Huesca. He is expected to walk straight into the starting line-up after impressing last season with Portuguese Superliga side Estrella Amadora. 

Ahmed Keshkesh, meanwhile, has finally sealed his move to Jordanian Premier League Champions Wehdat. He put pen to paper earlier this week, you can see the visual proof on Wehdat's official website.

Both Ahmad and Anas Sharbini found the back of the net helping their Croatian side NK Riejka overturn a 1-0 loss t0 Differdange in the first leg to win 3-1 on aggregate. Riejka will face Ukrainian side Metalist in the third round later this week. 

Al-Ahly of Egypt, have been on the wrong end of two schellackings this week. Losing 5-0 to Celtic and 4-1 to Barcelona. No worries for Ramzi Saleh (EDIT: Ramzi was ruled out of the Wembley Cup due to a knee injury, he also did not feature in the Supercup against Haras Al-Hadood) though, Amir Abelhamid was between the sticks for both meetings and did very little to convince the new manager of his abilities before being carried off after Eidur Gudjohnsen knocked him the back of the head. Ahmad Adel Abdel-Mun'im came on and promptly conceded another goal. We're thinking that Al- Ahly should stick to the 3-5-2 formation and keep Ramzi Saleh (whose saves were crucial in Al-Ahly staving off Al-Imsaily for the title) in goal.
