Gal Alberman

(1983 - )

Gal Alberman is a young, talented soccer player, who, at 20 years old, started playing for the Maccabi Petah Tikva team. However, he did not spend much time there, and in November 2002, head coach Avraham Grant called him up to the Israeli National team.

Alberman made sparse appearances for Maccabi Petah Tikva during the 2000-01 and 2001-02 campaigns, though the organization was aware of his promise. In 2002-03, he made two goals and added three assists. Alberman's performance helped Maccabi achieve a surprisingly high sixth-place finish ahead of teams with a budget twice their size. On the national team, Alberman was a starter for Israel against Macedonia on November 20, 2002, and was involved in two goals in the 3-2 win. At such a young age, his potential is enormous, and he tackles challenges and takes chances.
