2 "historic" soccer matches (video)








The first is a video of a game that took place Monday in Europe. An Israeli plays for the Liverpool team. Yossi Benayoun is his name. He scored a hat-trick (I know what that means from hockey - 3 goals) and added 2 assists... This is the first hat trick of the Champions League season and the first of an Israeli player in the league... (I am no soccer/football fan, but it is newsworthy and his athletic abilities should be applauded)..

the second clip was of the biggest news item of the week in Israel. A match between Beitar Jerusalem and some other team (I think Maccabbi Haifa but I am not sure) was the setting. As you can see in the clip they chose to memorialize the murder of Yitzchak Rabin at the game by having the teams wear shirts saying "Dai La'alimut" - no more violence. As they announce the memorial that Yitzchak Rabin was murdered, a section of Beitar fans broke out in cheers and booed Rabin and cheered Amir. (I first saw the Beitar clip at the Muqata)
