AFC Women’s Asian Cup 2014 qualification hopefuls Palestine went down to a 4-2 home defeat to the UAE in an international friendly at the Al Khader Stadium.
The UAE dominated the first-half and were 3-0 up after 34 minutes played, with Sara Muhammed adding to goals from Dalila Zarouqui (12th) and Iman Tarouda (16th).
The Palestinians rallied and went into the interval trailing by just one goal courtesy of a 37th minute Walaa Hussein effort and a Karol Sahejan strike one minute before the half-time whistle but their efforts turned out to be in vain as Tarouda scored her second and the UAE’s fourth and final goal in the 62nd minute.
Palestine are in Group D of the 2014 AFC Women’s Asian Cup qualifiers alongside Myanmar, Chinese Taipei and India with the match schedules to be announced soon.
