This is a pair of match worn/issued shorts belonging to Tal Ben Chaim, the winger, from the Israel vs. Italy World Cup 2018 Qualifying match played on September 5, 2017. Israel lost the match 1-0 from a 53rd minute header from Italian Striker, Ciro Immobile. Tal came on for Maor Melikson in the 62nd minute and had one attempt at goal where he tried to chip Gigi Buffon just like he did in the match that was played in Israel vs. Italy where he was able to score a beautiful chip goal putting Israel behind 2-1. This is the only pair of match worn/issued shorts in my collection.
