AL-KHOR: Palestine coach Makram Daboub said he was proud of his “champions” after they bowed out of the best Asian Cup in their history with a 2-1 defeat to hosts and holders Qatar on Monday.
Palestine were appearing in the knockout rounds for the first time in three Asian Cups and have enjoyed strong support during the tournament from fans of rival teams.
The last-16 encounter north of Doha took place against the backdrop of the Israel-Hamas war in the Palestinian territory of Gaza and a brief moment’s silence was held before kick-off.
