Women’s World Cup winners Japan handed out a harsh lesson to their Palestinian counterparts on Thursday in front of over 10,000 watching fans, ending in a 21-0 win in this Hebron suburb.
Watched by young fans, draped in Palestinian and Japanese colours, the Asian giants were 10-0 ahead at half-time against a team who wore black leggings beneath their shorts to cover their legs. Japan’s goals came from: Ayaka Michigami , Minori Wakabayashi , Sayumi Nishigawa , Hikari Taguchi , Keiko Kodama, Hikaru Kojima , Yoshie Hori , Reiko Terada
Women’s football in the region is still a relatively new development with a championship organised by the head of the Palestinian Football Association (PFA) Jibril Rajoub only recently.
