Almost half the players on the Israeli National Soccer Team are Muslim, including the captain.
The team’s diverse group of players causes controversy, especially during an important European tournament, most of it provoked by racist fans and the media. The players have their loyalty questioned by all sides while trying to guide Israel’s national team through the year’s biggest international challenge.
A Common Goal will be featured in our keynote presentation, 21%: The Lives of Arab Citizens of Israel.
A Common Goal director Shuki Guzik will be joined by Bedouin Arab Israeli tennis player Shadi.
