On November 26th, Agam, Gal, Tal and their mother Chen Goldstein who were all kidnapped from their home in Kfar Aza on October 7th, were all released from captivity. The team which was then in Serbia preparing for the Conference League match against Zorya,received the news and didn’t hide their excitement. The players recorded special video messages congratulating the Goldstein family for their release, and promised Gal (9) a Maccabi fan who plays as a goalkeeper for Sha’ar Hanegev – a visit to Kiryat Shalom as well as a jersey and gloves.
Today, (Friday) Gal and Tal accompanied by their family, were Maccabi’s guests at Kiryat Shalom as they met the players, the coaching staff who all welcomed them with open arms. As promised, Maccabi’s four keepers, Orlando Mosquerra, Roi Mishpati, Daniel Tenenbaum and Or Yitzhak presented Gal the jersey and gloves. The two brothers then enjoyed a behind the scenes tour of the complex before receiving official shirts with their names printed on the back and even participated in training. After watching the entire session, Tal, who celebrates his 7th birthday tomorrow, ended the visit by joining in the birthday toast of captain Sheran Yeini (37) today.
