Israel's soccer players are busy defending Tel Aviv's title as TIME Magazine's sixth 'selfiest' city.

Maccabi Tel Aviv's Eran Zahavi scored a hat-trick in Monday night's game against Hapoel Tel Aviv, and Maccabi won 3-2 against their long-time rivals.

After scoring his first goal in the 32nd minute , the 26-year-old ran the full length of the pitch in excitement, before borrowing a camera from someone at the side and taking a series of selfies.

He didn't even wait for the match to end. How 'selfie' is that?
