With success come hooligans

Hooliganism knows no boundaries.

The crazed fans of Hapoel Tel Aviv might have cost their team further participation in the UEFA Champions League, as they started a fire in a Bosnia stadium after their team scored a goal.
Embarrassed Hapoel heads tried to calm things down, but are expecting serious responses from the UEFA administration, which may lead to harsh sanctions or even immediate expulsion from European soccer.
Not like Israel is the most popular country in the world already.

It's a shame, especially since Israeli soccer has progressed drastically in the last few years.
