Blat­ter visit

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport -

FIFA Pres­i­dent Sepp Blat­ter was in Is­rael this week to lay the foun­da­tion stone for the Is­rael FA’s new Na­tional Foot­ball Cen­tre at She­fayim near Tel Aviv.

The world foot­ball chief was com­pli­men­tary about Is­raeli foot­ball and be­lieves that the cen­tre, which fea­tures train­ing pitches and coach­ing fa­cil­i­ties, will help it de­velop fur­ther.

“Dror Kash­tan has done great work with your na­tional team,” Blat­ter said, “and it would be a mar­vel­lous achieve­ment if you can reach the World Cup fi­nals in South Africa.”
