    Assuming all Israeli citizens play for Israel, Israel wouldn't have such an easy game. With the likes of Sorin, Samuel, De Ridder, Feilhaber, this would be a good game. Who would win?

    In such a hypothetical match up, who does de Ridder play for?

    I would imagine since he's already played for the u-21 dutch side, and is ineligible to play for Israel, he would play for the world team.

    Israel would win because the World Jewish Team would be forced to forfeit due to lack of players.

    World Jewish team (non Israel) could line up like this, so I think it's possible to assemble one: -

    ---------------------------Tvrtko Kale--------------------------------
    --------------------------(Croatia/M Tel Aviv)-------------------------------

    David Jemmali-----Walter Samuel ---Jonathan Bornstein --- Juan Pablo Sorin
    (Tunisia/Bordeaux)-------------------(America/Colorado Rapids)-------------
    -------------(Argentina/Internazionale) ------------(Argentina/Hamburger SV)

    Daniel De Ridder------Rudy Haddad-----Nicolas Tauber------ Benny Feilhaber
    (Netherlands/Celta Vigo)-----------------(Argentina/ Club Almagro)------------
    ---------------------(France/PSG)-------------------(America/Hamburger SV)

    ---------------Andriy Voronin------Sebastian Rozental----------------------
    --------(Ukraine/Bayer Leverkusen)-(Chile/Columbus Crew)-------------------

    that's actually a pretty good team. One capable of beating Israel.

    Don't think Gattuso counts - or at least there is no evidence he is Jewish, I'm not sure - Beckham has 1 Jewish grandfather (on his mother's side), so I think it would be difficult to consider him out and out Jewish. He's just part Jewish, as far as I can see.

    Who would coach World Jewish Team? Is Pekerman Jewish?

    Pekerman is indeed Jewish.

    Also: does anyone know whether Czech Republic center back David Rozehnal is Jewish? His name sounds like it.

    Johan Neeskens could also be on the sidelines...

    You really think that having a goalkeeper (Tauber) play midfield is a great idea?
