Date of birth : 5 May, 1980

Notes              : Came to attention when joined Ajax's youth set-up in 1996 but soon returned to Israel. In his first season in 1997/98 for Hapoel Beer Sheva scored 15 goals but was unable to save them from relegation. Has since then moved to Maccabi Haifa and has many major European clubs monitoring his progress. Was the star of Israel's youth teams before becoming an important part of the national team. Scored 19 goals to finish third top scorer in 1999/00 which helped his team finish second. Will join Racing Santander from Maccabi Haifa for 1.4m in the middle of 2002.
