Palestine down Pakistan 2-1

November 17, 2018


AL RAM (Palestine): Palestine came from behind to beat Pakistan 2-1 at the Faysal Al-Husseini Stadium on Friday in an international friendly in which they totally dominated the visitors and could’ve scored several more.

Hassan Bashir gave Pakistan a shock lead after a quick one-two with debutant Adnan Mohammed in the 16th minute but Palestine drew level 20 minutes later when Alexis Norambuena drilled home Mohammed Saleh’s flicked on header.

Palestine bossed possession but missed chances to put the match beyond Pakis­tan, only sealing the win when Nazmi Albadawi stro­ked home from just inside the box with 14 minutes to go after a swift move.
