Players from the Under-21 teams of Israel and England took time out from their busy European Championship schedules on Sunday to cooperate with groups of boys and girls from various social projects from all across the Israeli social spectrum.

This special event, themed as “Football For All,” was aimed at eliminating racism and violence from soccer. Israel Football Association chairman Avi Luzon and the chairman
of the English FA, David Bernstein, as well as coaches, Guy Luzon and Stuart Pearce, also took part in the event, which was held at Maccabi Netanya’s training ground.

The event was held by the Israeli Football Association and initiated by the program “Kick It Out” of the New Israel Fund, which celebrates its 10th anniversary.

In other off-field news, on Wednesday, senior officials from the German Football Association, including chairman Wolfgang Niersbach, and former national team star Lothar Matthaus (inset), will visit the Hadassah-Neurim Youth Village together with Keren Hayesod representatives.
