Israel’s soccer team may not be competing in the World Cup this month, but local sports fans can take pride: The blue and white soccer team may not be competing in Brazil over the next month, but Israeli armor, swords and Star of David flags were out in force as the national Knight squad attained victory in Hainburg an der Donau, Austria last week.
According to a report on the Hebrew-language Mako website, Michael Margolis, head of the Israeli team, said “We didn’t expect such great results. We’ve got a young team, but we fought like lions and bought home the results.” Margolis was injured in the shoulder during his bout, but brushed it off in true knighthood fashion.
The Knights of Jerusalem will compete later this week in Croatia.
