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.

What about all the Israel players giving their jackets to the shivering mascots? :clap: :clap:- David Tanner (@DavidTannerTV) November 20, 2018
What a lovely touch.
I remember being in the tunnel when Gordon Strachan took time out from his pre-match duties to arrange cold weather kit for the kids in similar conditions. Class. #SCOISR pic.twitter.com/9C7updrMaY
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.

Nice to see & touch of class from the Israel players, mind Gordon had to get other kit for the mascots because his jacket was too small- Clyde (@highlandclyde) November 21, 2018
