THE POPE KICKS OFF FOR PEACE

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

IS­RAEL’S Yossi Be­nay­oun will be among a galaxy of foot­ball stars past and present putting on their boots for a char­ity game in Rome on Septem­ber 1.

“The In­ter­re­li­gious Match for Peace” has been or­gan­ised by none other than the Pope.

Also billed to take part are Lionel Messi, Andrea Pirlo and Zine­dine Zi­dane.

Pro­ceeds will go to the rather de­light­fully named Pupi Foun­da­tion, founded by for­mer Ar­gen­tinian soc­cer player Javier “Pupi” Zanetti, who came up with the idea of a game to pro­mote in­ter-re­li­gious unity.
