Aviv won the domestic cham-
pionship, and the season also
saw the emergence of two
homegrown stars — play-
maker Chen Lippin and
defensive guard Motti Daniel.
Israel finished top of the
Oceania group in the World
Cup qualifying competition.
Unbeaten with one victory
and three draws in home and
away matches against New
Zealand and Australia, Israel
must now overcome Paraguay
or Colombia to reach the
World Cup finals in Italy next
summer. Israel faces its Latin
American opponents as
underdogs but nevetheless
with a good outside chance of
victory.
In domestic soccer competi-
tion Maccabi Haifa were once
again league champions but
were deprived of the double in
a thrilling cup final against
Betar Jerusalem who even-
tually triumphed on
penalties. Former Maccabi
Haifa star striker Ronnie
Rosenthal, now of Belgium's
Standard Liege, was at the
center of an unsavory con-
troversy when his transfer
deal to the Italian team
Udinese fell through over an
alleged abnormality in his

defeat byFrance, whose
superstars Henri Leconte and
Yannik Noah were too strong
for Israel's aces Amos
Mansdorf and Gilad Bloom.
but Mansdorf did show the
French his calibre last
November by winning the
Paris Grant Prix, which with
a prize of $250,000 is one of
the world's most prestigious
tournaments. Mansdorf
disappointed many of his
fans, however, when it was
revealed that he was
registered as a New York resi-
dent in order to avoid paying
Israeli income tax.
Financial wheeling and
dealing aside, Mansdorf con-
solidated his position as one
of the world's best players. At
the time of going to press he
was ranked 19th in the ATP
standings, one off his best
position of 18th. Bloom had a
more modestly successful
year, finishing in 190th place.
