The Israeli national team went to their important match in the Euro 2024 qualifiers, against the Romanian national team, in a direct battle for the second place in the house that leads to the European Championship. In the end, the situation remains as it was. Israel was better than the Romanians and more dangerous, but lack of precision and bad luck divided the points.
Progress of the game:
In the 27th minute, the Romanians took a 1:0 lead. Denis Alibec took advantage of Glazer's bad dribbling and kicked the rebound from close range.
In the 53rd minute, Oscar Gloukh kicked from the corner of the box and hit the net 1:1.
In the 75th minute, a huge miss was made by Gloukh who raced from the half into the box, misled the keeper, and kicked from close to the crossbar. 2 minutes later the Romanian Puskas received a ball, and from the box he also missed when he kicked the ball away from the goal.
After five rounds, in house 9, Switzerland leads the house and will probably finish in first place. Romania, which ended in a tie with Switzerland, leads Israel by a point. The rest of the teams at home are weak and have lost a chance for promotion.
Israel went into the game without a real striker: Zahavi and Atzili retired from the national team for reasons not related to football, so the national team came up with Manor Solomon on the wing along with Gloch and the young Turjeman who had a great campaign in the championships for young teams. Sagiv Yehezkel is the big surprise who will start on the right.
