Palestine vs Singapore World Cup qualifiers LIVE Football Score 3 June 2021
ABOUT THE MATCH
Palestine is going head to head with Singapore starting on 3 Jun 2021 at 18:00 UTC at Faisal al-Husseini International Stadium stadium, Al-Ram city, Palestine. The match is a part of the World Cup Qualification, AFC, Round 2, Gr. D.
Riyadh: Singapore will be chasing second place in Group D of the Asian Qualifiers for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and AFC Asian Cup China 2023 when they face Palestine as the action resumes in Saudi Arabia on Thursday.
PALESTINE v SINGAPORE
Head coach Tatsuma Yoshida’s men could overtake Uzbekistan in second place with a win against Palestine, something they can definitely do with before facing the Central Asians three days later in a crunch tie.
Singapore bounced back from two consecutive losses against Saudi Arabia and Uzbekistan in 2019 with a win against Yemen, having opened their campaign with a draw against the latter before taking a hard fought win against their next opponents at home with a scoreline of 2-1.
They will have to do without talismanic striker Ikhsan Fandi, as well as captain Hariss Harun and Safuwan Baharudin, all of whom have withdrawn from the squad due to injuries.
Palestine’s position in the group is precarious, sitting at the bottom on four points having played a game more than the rest of the teams. A win could take them level with Singapore in third place, but their fate ultimately falls in their opponents’ hands.
Palestine v Singapore
Venue: King Fahd International Stadium, Riyadh
Kick-off: Thursday, 21:00 hours (UTC+3)
SAUDI ARABIA v YEMEN
Group leaders Saudi Arabia will aim to extend their five-match unbeaten run when they welcome Yemen to King Saud University Stadium on Saturday. However, despite Yemen being 80 places below their opponents as per the latest FIFA rankings, the Group D tie is far from a straightforward encounter for the Saudis.
When the two sides met in the reverse fixture, Yemen spurred an upset with Mohsen Qarawi’s spectacular overhead kick opening the scoring inside eight minutes before Hattan Bahebri’s equaliser for Saudi Arabia. Omar Al Dahi restored Yemen’s lead before the break, but despite Salem Al Dawsari’s second-half equaliser, Yemen celebrated a famous draw.
