Ahead of the US embassy's contraversial move to Jerusalem, members of the Beitar Jerusalem soccer team have found a creative way to thank US President Donald Trump for his support. "We have the greatest love for the president, and we will win", the club said in a statement, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, both White House advisers, arrived in the country a day ahead of a ceremony to open the embassy.

"For 70 years Jerusalem been awaiting global recognition, until President Donald Trump, in a courageous move, recognized Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel", the Beitar Trump Jerusalem football club - formerly known as the Beitar Jerusalem Football Club - said on its Facebook page.

Three relievers finished the game for Detroit , with Shane Greene pitching the ninth for his eighth save in 10 chances. Dan is 2-2 with 4 holds and a 4.38 ERA (6 ER, 12.1 IP) in 13 relief appearances with the Mariners this season.

Beitar, one of Israel's top soccer clubs, is now in second place in the premier league.

It is the only team in the Israeli soccer league that has never had an Arab Muslim player, even though such players are prominent on the squads of all other teams. Officials on the team have indicated in the past that it is unofficial policy.

The signing of the Chechen Muslims led to the harassment of Zaur Sadayev and Dzhabrail Kadiyev, racist in-game chants and even arsonists burning the club's offices in 2013. It also said it would close down the eastern section of its ground which is infamous for housing the club's most rabid fans, including the ultra-nationalist "La-Familia" faction.
