This is a Jako Palestine national team 2019 home jersey featuring the name and number of star midfielder Jonathan Cantillana Zorrilla.

Jonathan Cantillana Zorrilla is one of Palestine’s greatest footballers and the Chilean-born footballer currently plays for Palestinian giants Hilal Al-Quds. He started his career in Chile with San Antonio Unido and later CD Palestino before playing in Malaysia and Egypt. Although born & raised in Chile, he is of Palestinian heritage and first debuted for the Palestine National Team in 2015. He has gone onto become a key member of the team and played in the Asian Cups in 2015 & 2019. He has scored a total of 10 goals in 27 international matches, making him Palestine’s equal third highest all-time scorer.

Palestine have been competing at international level since their football federation was founded in 1928, however they were only recognised by FIFA in 1998 after the creation of the Palestinian National Authority. After joining FIFA, Palestine achieved little success and faced significant challenges in training, playing and travelling due to travel restrictions placed by Israel on people in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Despite these issues escalating over the coming years, Palestine have become one of the region’s success stories after qualifying for their maiden Asian Cup in 2015 by winning the 2014 AFC Challenge Cup. They qualified again in 2019 and reached an all-time high FIFA ranking of 73 in March 2018.
