This January 5th (until February 1), in the United Arab Emirates (OAU), starts one of the major football matches of 2019: Asian Cup. In this tournament, although it is from another continent, will be attended by five Chileans, who currently defend the colors of other nations. The opening is played by the organizer against Bahrain (13:00 in Chile).
In Palestine, for example, the salary is driven by four born in the country, such as Alexis Norrambuena, Pablo Tamburini, Jonathan Kantilana and Yashir Islam, who in November changed the order of their surnames to stop being Pinto.
Norrambuena had the last experience in Deportis Melipila, while Islam promoted him in the Primera with Coquimbo Unido. Tamburini served in Al-Bireai in Palestine and Cantilane in Hilal Al-Quds on the West Bank.
Palestinians share one of the most complicated areas with Australia, Jordan and Syria (see all groups below). They will debut on Sunday 6, before the Syrians, at 1:00 am in Chile. On Friday the 11th they go against the Australians (8:00 am) and are jailed against the Jordans on Tuesday at 15:30.
