Disappointment in the Israeli team after the 4-0 defeat to Portugal last night (Wednesday). Even before the game, the Israeli camp talked about the huge level differences between the teams, but the hope was nevertheless to surprise, or at least record a respectable performance and a reasonable loss against Cristiano Ronaldo and his friends. In practice, on the pitch, there was a clear superiority of the hosts from the first second when Willie Rothsteiner's players had a hard time getting into situations or developing a regular game. "There are great players there," said a player on the team. "Portugal is able to go all the way in the Euros. ".



"We have to tell the truth - we see these players every week in the best teams and in the Champions League," added goalkeeper Ophir Marciano.

"Obviously the result is not pleasant but we will try to take the positive things out of the game and move on."

Alongside the disappointment were also reviews of the ability of quite a few of those who shared.

"There is no doubt that the gaps are huge, but even in games like this we need to look better," said one of the players.

Before the pair of friendly games, there was a lot of talk about the rejuvenation of the team. Summonses from players such as Uri Dahan and Osama Khalayla, along with players like Ben Shehar being left out of the squad, gave the feeling that the Austrian coach was working on changing the shifts in the team. We ended up with quite similar lineups, and both Muhammad Abu Fani and Gadi Kinda, who received more credit, understand that when players like Mons Dabour, Dor Peretz and Eyal Golsa return, it is doubtful whether they will return to the line-up. "It is possible to talk about the grief, but in practice Degani still received credit before Balorian and Dahan," said a source in Israeli football. "And Zahavi and Salomon are anchors in every game, including friendship. You don't have to constantly say grief and processes if there are none. It's Willie's right to go with the players he likes, but grief is not here."



It is estimated that ahead of the meetings against the Faroe Islands, Austria and Denmark, the "regular" players will return to the squad at the expense of some of the "surprising" players who have been invited.

The biggest question mark ahead of these three games is Dabour’s summons.

There is a lot of criticism among the players about the striker who chose not to explain the political post he wrote, and they heard about the latest saga and his being left out of the squad from the media - and not from him personally.

Rothsteiner himself sees no impediment to his return to the team, officials in the association explain, but it is not at all certain that in the current situation, the striker will be interested in being part of the squad.

Not exactly a regret.

A lot of criticism and interest has aroused in recent years team captain Beavers Natcho.

Last night came another controversial moment when the veteran midfielder exchanged a shirt with Ronaldo already on his way down to the locker rooms at half-time.

At the end he claimed that he does not usually change shirts in national team games, but the Portuguese star is the one who unexpectedly approached him with the offer.

It was also a post-match call today, with players on the team making it clear they believe in their captain.

"Beavers played in the Champions League against all the biggest stars," said a young player on the team. Now for Beavers, but he probably didn't wait the whole half just to change his shirt. "

Gets back.

Now the team players will return to their teams until the next official meetings.

Despite the fact that there is no home team in the World Cup qualifiers on the order of Portugal, the Israeli camp understands that the games against Austria and Denmark will also be very difficult.

"We certainly can not be in euphoria ahead of the games," said a source in the team, "but the game against Montenegro showed us that we can definitely tackle and give a fight. We need to focus on actions on the pitch and not talk."



The one who won big compliments was goalkeeper Ophir Marciano who prevented some safe goals, despite the quartet he absorbed.

Marciano is still without a team for next season and the team very much hopes that he will find one soon so that he can record regular preparation for the season.

Despite Itamar Nitzan's good ability also in the game against Montenegro, Marciano is destined to serve as the first goalkeeper in the next official games.
