The UEFA Nations League wasn’t exactly welcomed with open arms when it was first announced.
Many fans felt it was simply a way of over-glorifying friendlies and that the much-maligned international breaks would continue to bore and frustrate.
However, the tournament has been somewhat of a breath of fresh air.
But it was the Israeli team that attracted plenty of praise for their lovely gesture to the game’s mascots before kick off.
On what was a very cold night at the famous Hampden Park, the young mascots were bizarrely made to walk out in just a t-shirt and shorts and were quite clearly freezing.
Fortunately, the Israeli team came to the rescue, offering their jackets to the children who had accompanied them.
