Early life[edit]

Samuel Scheimann was born in Afula, Israel to a Jewish family.[1] He immigrated to the Netherlands with his family at the age of five.[2]

Playing career[edit]

Scheimann started playing football in the youth system of Feyenoord.[2] In 2003, Scheimann joined the youth system of NAC Breda.[3] At age 18, he represented the Netherlands at the 2005 Maccabiah Games in football.[4] Shortly thereafter, Scheimann was invited by Maccabi Tel Aviv for trials [1] but did not receive a contract.[4] Scheimann returned to the Netherlands and signed a 2-year contract with Kozakken Boys.[3] After an extensive trial at Jong AFC Ajax, coach Aron Winter wanted to sign Scheimann in 2008, but Martin van Geel vetoed the signing.[2] On 11 April 2008 he signed with FC Den Bosch from Kozakken Boys after rejecting an offer from Feyenoord because he wanted first team action.[2] Scheimann was voted 'Player of the Year' in his first season with Den Bosch.[5]

After the 2010-11 Eerste Divisie season ended, Scheimann left Den Bosch as a free agent. He joined Eredivisie club Excelsior Rotterdam on a two-year contract until July 2013.

Scheimann made his debut for Excelsior in a 2–0 loss against Feyenoord on August 5, 2011, playing 90 minutes.[6]

On 3 June 2012 signed to Maccabi Haifa for 2 years, with an option for two more years.[7] On 27 August 2012 he made his Israeli Premier League debut in a 1-2 loss against Maccabi Tel Aviv.

On 2 June 2015 signed to Hapoel Tel Aviv for 2 years.[8] In January 2017 released from Hapoel, following financial problems.

On 12 January 2017 signed to Hapoel Haifa for 1.5 years.[9]

International career[edit]

On 16 May 2012, Scheimann received his first call up to the Israeli national team.[10] He made his international debut later that year.[11]
