Hi, what originally brought you to Israel?

Marcus: I play soccer for Maccabi Petah Tikva. We came to Israel four years ago, we lived in Kiryat Shmona for three years when I played there, and now a year in Petah Tikva. The season ended two days ago and we’re going to Romania for vacation. We were supposed to go to Brazil to see my family, whom I haven’t seen for three years, but the situation isn’t good because of the coronavirus.
