In Israeli soccer, frustration is a national tradition
The last time our boys in blue and white beat a better team in a crucial game was in 1999, against Austria.
Justified praise was heaped on some of the national team players following Friday’s World Cup qualifier against Portugal, and coach Eli Guttman came up with a good game plan. But let's face it, Israel was ahead 3-1 in the 72nd minute against a soccer team playing badly. Israel should have won.
