China and Palestine played to a 1-1 draw in their international friendly at the Wuyuanhe Sports Center as both teams continued their buildup to the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019.

China went ahead when defender Feng Xiaoting popped up with a towering header from a set-piece on nine minutes on the southern island of Hainan. 

Palestine, however, were unfazed by going behind and took advantage as China opted for a defensive approach with Yashir Pinto scoring the equaliser after capitalising on a failed offside trap.

The result was China's third draw in five matches, with one win and one defeat while Palestine had to settle for a share of the spoils after having defeated Pakistan 2-1 the last time out.
