Barca dealing with Copa drama


Earnshaw fled from missile attack

Wales striker Rob Earnshaw has revealed that he had to flee a Maccabi Tel Aviv training session because of a missile attack on the Israeli city.

Earnshaw, 31, joined Maccabi on a season-long loan from Cardiff City in September. Since his move, the long-standing conflict between Israel and neighbouring Palestine has again flared into escalating violence.

The former Nottingham Forest striker told The Sun that he and his team-mates had to run for cover when a siren went off, warning of a missile attack.

He said: "The foreign boys like me did not have a clue what was going on until the local Israeli boys were shouting and screaming at us: 'Come in, come in, come in. You have to take shelter.'

"Apparently you've got about 60 seconds to take cover. When they tell you that - and you hear the word missiles mentioned - you move pretty fast.

"I was just thinking: 'My God, what's happening here?' Then, literally 30-60 seconds after the sirens sounded, there was a massive bang and an explosion."

Earnshaw, who has scored once in four appearances in the Israeli Ligat Ha'al, added: "That was my first experience of the conflict, and it's not something a boy from South Wales can easily get used to.

"I used to think that Cardiff on a night out could get a bit lively. I can assure you it's a lot livelier out here in Tel Aviv right now."

Maccabi Tel Aviv are currently level on points with city rivals Hapoel at the top of the table.
