How Do You Say Goal in Hebrew?

If you’re like half the population of the world, you’re pretty interested in that whole World Cup situation that’s going on in South Africa. Wouldn’t it be fun if you could watch the games and listen to Hebrew commentary to brush up on your Hebrew soccer/football terminology? According to my friend Dov, you can! Check out atdhe.net and look for the games with (Hebrew) next to them. Doesn’t look like it’s available all the time, but I’m watching the Spain vs. Chile game now, and enjoying the sarcastic and deeply Israeli commentary.

While you’re thinking about Israelis and soccer, why not check out our article about Arab soccer leagues in Israel, and see if you can find a showing of the film After the Cup about a team from an Arab village who won the Israeli Cup and went on to represent Israel in European competition.
