Bahrain’s friendlies with Palestine and Syria have emerged after the national team withdrew from the West Asian Football federation (WAFF) Championship, which was supposed to be held this month.

The decision came after the UAE apologised for being unable to host the tournament, and the WAFF has had to reschedule the event.
