    Avi Cohen

    Jew Score:



    November 14, 1956 – December 29, 2010

    Avi Cohen might be one of the best Israeli footballers of all time, but his career with famed Liverpool didn't really have a happy ending.

    Cohen didn't play much in England, but somehow earned a starting spot in the ultimate game of the 1979/80 season. It wasn't just a game: Liverpool had to beat Aston Villa to win the league title. And Cohen definitely made a mark: he scored! Alas, it was into his own net...

    No, this part actually ended well. Cohen then scored into the correct net, giving Liverpool the lead and eventual title. It's what followed next that was a downer: Cohen decided to play on Yom Kippur, upsetting his home country. It wasn't even worth it: a few months later, Liverpool flat our released him.

    Cohen went back to Israel, had an excellent career, and even fathered a fellow international, Tamir. Then, he tragically injured himself while riding a motorcycle and died soon after.

    No, there are no happy endings here...

    Verdict: Jew.
