The Caltex Socceroos have been drawn into Group B for the AFC Asian Cup 2019 to be held in the United Arab Emirates.
As reigning champions, Australia will face the first tests of their title defence against Syria, Palestine and Jordan.
Here's our look at Palestine, their prospects of creating trouble and how they'll hope to fair at next year's tournament.
HOW THEY QUALIFIED
Palestine narrowly missed out on direct qualification through the Second Round after finishing third behind Saudia Arabia and the UAE.
Instead, they finished the job in the Third Round, finishing second behind Oman on goal difference but well clear of Maldives and Bhutan.
Palestine have done well since the beginning of 2017, winning seven of their last nine.
They did, however, lose to Oman last month after settling for a 0-0 draw in a friendly against Bahrain.
AFC ASIAN CUP HISTORY
This is both their second successive AFC Asian Cup appearance and second of all time.
They'll be hoping this run can last longer than 2015.
On debut in 2015, they were beaten in all three matches by the more experienced Japan, Iraq and Jordan.
ONE TO WATCH
Ahmad Maher Wridat is a diminutive forward who Palestine may look to for scoring punch.
Wridat, 26, has scored eight goals in 22 games for his country and currently plays for Shabab Al-Dhahiriya in his native country.
While small in stature, Wridat is renowned for his speed and could be a threat on the counter-attack.
Former Bolivia international Julio Cesar Baldivieso has been in charge since late 2017. The 45-year-old has plenty of managerial experience despite his relative young years, and was capped 85 times for his country during a long playing career.
HISTORY AGAINST AUSTRALIA
Australia is yet to meet Palestine in a senior international match, although they were Down Under for the last AFC Asian Cup.
HOW FAR CAN THEY GO?
Palestine finished last in Group D with no points and only a lone goal in 2015. at their last Asian Cup and scored just once.
It is likely that, in their second appearance at the tournament, smaller objectives may be set before qualifying from the group comes into the foreground.
