Israeli Footballer Maor Buzaglo Poses With Iranian Footballer Ashkan Dejagah

Israeli footballer Maor Buzaglo has posted on Facebook this picture of himself alongside Ashkan Dejagah, the captain of the Iranian national team.

Translation:

In soccer, the rules are different and there is one language without prejudice and without wars. The captain of the Iranian team and I prove that there is another way

Looking at the photo, they have much in common – like soccer and tattoos!

Here’s hoping we see more of this.

Update: According to the Jewish News:

The picture is even more surprising given that Dejagah, who was born in Tehran but moved to Germany with his family when he was one, declined to travel to Israel play for the German U21 side in 2007, saying that he feared he would be imprisoned if he went back to Iran.

No doubt he is going to be sanctioned by Iran for this.
