Israel striker Hemed gears up for Ronaldo and Portugal in World Cup qualifier
'A draw isn't good enough,' the Mallorca star says, as the blue and white will still have to play in Portugal and Russia.
Even for professional Israeli soccer players, facing Cristiano Ronaldo can be an exciting moment. Mallorca striker Tomer Hemed has already faced the Portuguese phenomenon and his Real Madrid teammate Pepe; on Saturday, Mallorca was thrashed 5-2 by Real. But Hemed, Israel's top scorer in the World Cup qualifiers, insists Israel's game Friday against Portugal is completely different.
