The writers' football teams were made up of novelists, poets and non fiction writers. The England squad includes Whibread-prize winning novelist and central midfielder Patrick Neate, up-and-coming novelist, poet and striker Joe Dunthorne, and veteran goalie and fantasy writer, Graham Joyce, author of Simple Goalkeeping Made Spectacular. The Israel squad includes Avi Shilon, biographer of Menachem Begin, and defender Assaf Gavron, author of the controversial CrocAttack. The teams met for the first time in Tel Aviv in December 2008, when Israel twice came from behind to win 3-2 with a late penalty. It was an exciting game between the two.
