Good News and 'Bad News' about Israel and Liverpool
The 'bad' news is that Maccabi Haifa, the champion of the Israeli league last year, lost to the favorite Liverpool in the first leg of their two matches in the European champions' league.The match took place on Wednesday night (9 August) in Liverpool and after a surprisingly tight match the home team scored with 2 minutes remaining to win 2-1. The good news, and a much more important one, is that as the coach with the Israeli football team left Liverpool FC a crowd of real scousers gathered round the bus, joined hands and sang:
"Israel You Will Never Walk Alone" and "Come Back Again!"
