Israel Players Make Sure Shivering Mascots Are Warm During National Anthem With Brilliant Gesture

On a cold night in Glasgow, Israel managed to grab the headlines during their 3-2 defeat to Scotland in the Nations League, but it was for all the right reasons.

Before kick-off at Hampden Park, the Israeli players made sure every mascot was warm and toasty during the national anthem ceremony, offering their jackets to the youngsters in a wonderful gesture.

This is what football is all about, folks.

Scotland's James Forrest bagged a hat-trick in the dramatic tie at Hampden Park, handing them that all-important play-off place for the European Championships in 2020.

The Celtic winger made it 3-1 after 65 minutes, cancelling out Beram Kayal's opener in the ninth minute.
