The Palestine national team match against the Australia in 2e ronde of the AFC 2026 World Cup Qualification on Tuesday, November 21, 2023 will be held at the Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium Stadium, Kuwait City.
Palestine will face Australia in Kuwait City on Tuesday, November 21 2023, in the continuation of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers in the Asian zone. This match will be a tough test for Palestine, who have not won in their last four matches in Group B of the first round. They only collected two points from draws against Lebanon and Indonesia, and lost to China and Oman. They are currently third in the group, two points behind leaders Australia.
Australia, on the other hand, have been dominant in qualifying, winning their two matches by a 9-0 goal margin. They had just crushed Bangladesh 7-0 in their previous match, with Jamie Maclaren scoring a hat-trick. They also won over New Zealand in a friendly match without conceding a single goal. Australia currently leads Group I with 3 points.
This match will be the second meeting between the two teams. Their last meeting was at the 2019 Asian Cup, where Australia won 3-0 with goals from Jamie Maclaren, Awer Mabil and Apostolos Giannou.
This match will also be influenced by the unstable political situation in Palestine, which has recently experienced an armed conflict between Hamas and Israel. This match will be played in Kuwait City as a neutral venue, due to security reasons.
Australia have announced that they will donate a portion of their match money to humanitarian efforts in Gaza. Australia coach Graham Arnold said preparations for the match had been “very stressful” and he hoped football could bring joy.
Australia appeared to be too strong for Palestine, who had never scored against them. Australia have better quality and experience across the board, and will look to maintain their perfect record in qualifying. Palestine will try to put up fierce resistance, but will most likely lose by a large goal difference.
