Football, Soccer, Cador Regel, Whatever

The internationl football qualifiers this weekend reminded me of that famous match 16 years ago when the Israeli National Team - defying the odds, logic and the rational order of things - managed to beat the French national side - Cantona et al - in Paris, and contribute to their eventual failure to qualify for the 94 Mundial.

Strange match: the Israelis had nothing left to play for, even pride (a bit like this weekend, actually). But win they did.

Here's a clip from the glorious moment in injury time when Reuven Atar puts Israel 3-2 up. If anyone can identify the commentator who is quite clearly having a golden moment all of his own, I'd be very much obliged.
