Israeli soccer-turned-football star Mesika headed to US tryout

Professional Israeli soccer player Gal Mesika – who also has become a rising football star in the Holy Land – will travel to Arizona next month, when he will become the first Israeli to get a tryout attended by professional American football scouts.

The 27-year-old from Herzliya has impressed New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and several football coaches with his outstanding abilities as a kicker.

Mesika is relatively new to American football, but not to professional sport. For the past decade, he was a goalkeeper in the top tiers of Israeli soccer and was a member of the under-19 and under-21 Israel national teams.
