Soccer is the world's game, a sport played by millions (perhaps billions) of people around the world.
So it shouldn't come as a surprise that those millions include folks of all kinds: different nationalities, different backgrounds, different colors, different languages and different religious traditions.
So in the midst of the Jewish holiday season (it's kind of like "Awards Season" with slightly more fasting) that includes Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot, it only seemed right to take a look back at the top 25 Jews in soccer, both past and present.
Let the festivities begin and happy new year to all! Tekiah!
(Oh, and if you stick with me all the way to No. 25, there's a great video payoff at the end. Promise.)
