Palestinian nationality is not in-game but I strongly believe that it should be there.

Recently I’ve seen on Top Eleven official forum another request about this topic and I decided to write a bit more about and why I should believe that the Palestinian nationality should be introduced in-game.

First of all and the most important thing to highlight is that Palestine have a football team and they are recognized by FIFA since 1998.

Currently they are ranked 99 world wide better than other countries like Lithuania, North Korea, Armenia, etc.

They played at the ASIAN CUP 2019 where they lost once and drew twice, against Syria and Jordan the team that won the group B after they managed to beat Australia.

First place at AFC Challenge Cup in 2014.

Abdelatif Bahdari who is also the captain of the team have a total of 58 caps for Palestine and 8 goals scored, a big number if you think that he is a defender. Miranda from Internazionale Milano currently have 56 caps for Brazil national team playing on the same position like him and sharing same age. 

Ramzi Saleh managed to play 68 games for Palestine. Jean-Pierre Papin who’s a Ballon d’OR winner only played 54 games for the French squad. 

Fahed Attal managed to score 14 goals in 40 games for Palestine. More than all the strikers of argentina scored all together:  Dybala, Icardi, Ángel Correa, Giovanni Simeone & Lautaro Martínez.

In the name of normality and the honor of all those players who played under the flag and the nationality of Palestine please consider adding the “Palestinian nationality” in-game as soon as possible.
