A fascinating and often shocking history of football in Israel and Palestine both before and after the creation of the Jewish state. This examines how the game became a vehicle for nationalism and pride under British rule with Jewish and Palestinian teams competing for control on and off the field of play and follows how Palestinian football survived among refugees after 1948. The story continues to the present with shock wins seeing Palestine climbing the FIFA rankings. Published in 2019.
