ISRAEL'S dream to WORLD CUP will not come true

Last night game watched was so exciting and I am on the team of Israel of course or where else, lol.Back in the Phillipines I'm an avid fan of basketball ,it changed me when I'm already here abroad that most viewed of all ages was this kind of game.Israel's Yossi Benayoun a super star in "kadoregel" (football) was not playing because he was sick and injured during previous matched.

Scored 2-1
against the Greeks last Wednesday night loss now leaves the national team with an almost impossible task to progress to the World Cup.About 40 years of dreaming to have qualifying slot on the world cup but this time goes to nothing.The coach was so disappointed in some performance and the abilities of the players as he said in an interview but still proud that they controlled the game.

In the 11th minute, the Israeli defense failed to clear Giorgos Karagounis's free kick and was very fortunate that defender Sotirios Kyrgiakos squandered a superb opportunity, blasting a free shot from the center of the box high above Dudu Aoute's goal.

Greece's victory was never under any doubt after that and Israel will likely have to wait at least another four years until it returns to play in the World Cup for the first time since 1970.
