Goal of the day: Tal Ben Haim (Maccabi Petah Tikva) vs Hapoel Rishon LeZion | inside World Soccer

Maccabi Petah Tikva attacker Tal Ben Haim, not the former Chelsea defender, scored a brilliant solo goal to open the scoring in a 2-2 draw with Hapoel Rishon LeZion in the Israeli league.

First thing to point out about this goal is that there are two Tal Ben Haim's in Israeli football.

And this Ben Haim is a highly rated 22-year-old attacker who can play on the wing or up front and has long been billed as a future star.

Ben Haim picked up the ball on the edge of his own box, ran from deep past one opponent, skinned another defender, before producing a delightful chip that gave the keeper absolutely no chance.

Difficult to imagine the original Tal Ben Haim, currently defending poorly at Portsmouth, scoring a goal like this!
