Even though Israel did not make it to the World Cup in German, the country's flag was waved yesterday on the field in Cologne, where Ghana beat the Czech Republic 2:0. Three members of the Ghana squad play in Israel ( John Pantsil in Tel Aviv, Emmanuel Pappoe in Kfar Saba, and Sammy Adjei in Ashdod ) and one of them produced a small Israel flag and started to wave it after one of the two goals. Could it be that this is how they wanted to show their appreciation for the wonderful ways in which Israel treats its foreign workers? This morning I already heard someone reassure the Israeli public that the flag was hidden in the player's sock, not in his underpants.
