Saudi Arabia head coach, Herve Renard, said on Monday that his side's Group D 2022 World Cup Asian qualifier against Palestine, in Palestine, on Tuesday is "a historic game."
"It's a pleasure for us to be in Palestine for this game. Football needs to be like that," added Renard, who led Morocco to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
In the past, national teams from the Arab world have refused to play in the Occupied Palestinian Territories as it involved requesting permits from the Israeli government, a country they do not officially recognise.
This move has been widely seen as a sign that Saudi Arabia have begun normalising relations with the Israeli state.
But for Palestinian players this means they can finally play on home soil against teams from the Arab world.
"It's great for our fans to see their national team play at home. This is how it should be for us Palestinians," said Palestine defender Abdelatif Bahdari.
