I'm an ex-international ace.. I carried condom in my sock for half-time bonk with fan & was jailed for smuggling cocaine | The SunApril 30, 2023
FORMER Israel international Felix Halfon always carried a condom in his sock during matches in case he got lucky at half-time.
And that's exactly what happened back in 1993 during an international friendly against Sweden.
Halfon missed his manager's half-time talk as he got up close and personal with a Swedish fan in a cupboard.
Israel didn't benefit from the now 51-year-old's actions as they went on to lose 5-0.

Halfon previously admitted: "It was no big deal. I always carried a condom in one of my socks.”

Eisenberg was criticised for “exposing filth in football” by the country’s former FA director Gavri Levy.
However, the ex-football chief defended his account, saying: "Let's be rational, my publisher wasn't going to pay me to keep things clean."
Halfon was no stranger to controversy during his 28-year career, which saw him amass 38 caps.

The ex-Maccabi Tel Aviv ace was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison.
Halfon was released after two-and-a-half years due to good behaviour and actually resumed his playing career.
