The national soccer team of Wales, in Israel for a European Championship game, holds a workshop for some 23 Jewish and Arab kids in Haifa.
The Israeli kids “were coached on ball skills from leading names in football including Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale and Liverpool’s Joe Ledley,” according to a statement.
Matthew Gould, Britain’s ambassador to Israel, says the event “sends a strong message.”
“Football is a great equalizer. We are proud to support this initiative that breaks down barriers between communities through football,” he says.
