Next month many Israelis, together with hundreds of millions of people around the world, will spend hours and hours in front of the television, to watch the games of what here is often called "HaMundial". Unike Israel, Holland will also play at the World Championship. This morning I read a column by Dutch Olympic swimming champion Pieter van den Hoogenband who writes that his Italian and German colleagues often tease him with the following joke: "What does a Dutchman do when the Dutch soccer team becomes World Champion? He turns off his Playstation."
