AngularJS Question

Use alert from ng-click of a directive

New to angularjs.
Want to write an expression into an ng-click.


return {
restrict: 'E',
replace: true,
template: '<games> <game ng-click="(alert({{ game }})" ng-repeat="game in games"> {{ game.team1 }} {{game.bets }} <game></br></games> '

I want to alert the game on click but I got this error:

Error: [$parse:syntax] Syntax Error: Token 'game' is unexpected, expecting [:] at column 11 of the expression [(alert({{ game }})] starting at [game }})].

In the directive's ng-click we call our function:
