    Great blog as it’s normally impossible to find any info about Timor Leste team. Thanks for sharing.

    Could you confirm which of the players have accepted the invitation and joined camp? I assume that not all of those 33 called up players are actually going to play for Timor Leste (at least not yet)? Or have they confirmed their participation and got a clearance already from FIFA to represent Timor?

    So any chance that you could update the squad before Palestine match?

    Good luck for the qualification!
