The Mondial Part I: Israeli Flag on the Field

John Pantsil represents (Ha'aretz) - Thanks!

Unfortunately, Israel did not qualify for the 2006 World Cup, although the blue-white came incredibly close. Luckily, John Pantsil, a starter for the Ghanaian national team who also plays for Hapoel Tel Aviv in the Israel League, was there to represent during his country's match against the Czech Republic. Ghana won 2:0. Nice.

ADDENDUM: Apparently, the Israeli-flag waving by the Ghanaians has made some people very angry. Check out this post about some of these reactions on the very interesting Egptian blog, The Big Pharaoh.
