Tackle football: Israel overcomes Spain in 1st competitive game

The Israeli national tackle football team beat Spain 28-20 in Madrid in its first-ever competitive game on Sunday, advancing to Group B of the European Federation of American Football.

The Israel squad was welcomed at the stadium by pro-Palestinian graffiti, but it maintained its composure and claimed a dramatic win.

Three-time IFL MVP Dani Eastman from the Judean Rebels registered three touchdowns, and it was his score with four minutes remaining that broke a 20-20 tie and gave the blue-and-white a lead it wouldn’t relinquish.
