Israeli Prime Minister Benajmin Netanyahu hosted Israeli Premier Division champions Hapoel Beer Sheva, after they claimed their first title in 40 years.

A 3-1 win over Bnei Sakhnin saw the Negev team finish two points ahead of Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Netanyahu had earlier tweeted: “I congratulate the team for this immense achievement; Beer Sheva is now not only the cyber capital, but also the soccer capital. Well done.”
