David “Dudu” Aouate: Goalkeeper


David “Dudu” Aouate (דוד “דודו” אוואט) was born on October 17, 1977 in Nazareth Illit.

The 6’1 goalkeeper has played numerous for eight teams and has collected 45 caps with the Israeli National Team.

Currently, Aouate is the starting goalie for RCD Mallorca in Spain’s La Liga. Before this he played for Deportivo La Coruna and Racing Santander in Spain, as well as Maccabi and Hapoel Haifa back home in Israel.

The 32 year old has since 2006 been, along with Yossi Benayoun and Tal Ben Haim, one of the first names in the starting XI for the Israel National Team.

His leadership and communication has been key in Israel’s defense keeping strong against the opponents, and he is very quick on his feet, and has been known to make great saves.

Some of his saves have kept Israel in some games, although he is not perfect, and some mistakes have let easy goals in the back of the net.

Overall he is a top talent for Israel and should stay between the pipes (to use a hockey term) for the Nivcheret (National Team) for a long time.

    I think Dudu has bright future. He plays for a team with excellent team spirit (i.e. RCD Mallorca) and has real chances to improve in some things he is now not so good at, I think. Well, if he impresses me greatly now, what will be in future? 🙂
