Mabouka's match worn retro shirt from the Maccabi Haifa vs. Maccabi Petah Tikvah match played on April 3rd, 2021 at the Sami Offer Stadium in Haifa. Mabouka came on as a substitute in the 71st minute replacing Sun Menachem. The match ended as a 1-1 draw. Haifa took an early lead from a 19' minute goal by Tjarron Cheri, but Petah Tikvah equalized in the 51' minute from Liel Abada. 

The shir

t is extremely rare as this match was only the second time where Haifa wore a 1 off commemorative shirt (first time was in the final match of the 2008/09 season), and commemorates Maccabi Haifa's 1984/85 championship season. The shirt contains the same Volvo sponsor logo on the front but only has 2 stripes on the shoulders, instead of the standard adidas 3. The shirt also has the variety sponsor on the back and the players last name.
