Soccer: Shuker stunner seals shock upset of Maccabi Tel Aviv

After discovering how difficult life can be in the Champions League group stage, Maccabi Tel Aviv was reminded on Sunday that it can’t take anything for granted in the Premier League either, suffering a shock 2-1 defeat to Hapoel Ra’anana at Bloomfield Stadium.

Maccabi was thoroughly outplayed in a 4-0 loss to Chelsea in their group stage opener last week, but it was extremely confident of bouncing back at home against Ra’anana.

However, it was frustrated by a resilient Ra’anana on Sunday, which netted the winner through Snir Shuker in the 90th minute after conceding an equalizer two minutes earlier.
