Escape room: Eran Zahavi must find a way to return to the Israeli national team - voila! sport


Precisely because of the shining squad and the realistic hope of finally advancing to a major tournament, the Maccabi Tel Aviv star should understand that waiving his demand for a room alone will not hurt his ego, but quite the opposite

Summary: Maccabi Tel Aviv - Hapoel Beer Sheva 0:1 (Sport 1)

Since Yossi Benyon, we haven't had a national team that the audience is so eager to see.

We haven't had such an intriguing, attractive team, a team whose expectations already make us wait with great anticipation for March 25, the date when the Euro 2024 qualifying campaign will kick off in a match against the Kosovo team in Bloomfield.

If in many campaigns in the past in the football association they invested a lot of effort to get the audience to come to the games, they distributed tickets to students in the envelope, and to those who didn't, it seems that in the current campaign, the level of attractiveness of the opponents is no longer of interest to the fans, for the first time after a very long time, the fans will fill the stadiums because of the players our.

And this time, without the evil eye, we have a sea of ​​stars.

The current squad will be one of the brightest that the Israeli national team has had after at least two decades.

For the first time the national team coach's notebook is loaded with a list of brilliant players, after many years, the media discourse will no longer be around the question of whether to call up players who do not play for their team (mainly the legionnaires), this time, unlike in the distant past, the debates will be purely professional.

from the shining squads in recent decades.

The fact that in the upcoming campaign the first two automatically advance to the European Championship only adds interest and is widely known for optimism.

Recently, the question surrounding the future of Eran Zahavi in ​​the national team is no longer relevant, all the debaters and those with good intentions raised their hands and moved aside.

Although the chairman of the association, Shino Zoertz, as part of his desire to return Zahavi to the national team, offered to finance each player's own room in the hotel, the professional director in Nion politely rejected the offer. The

fact that Bnion rejected any compromise proposal, caused journalists, businessmen, business owners and all kinds of associates of the other The parties move aside. Many of them still hope that Zahavi will change his mind. The debate about who is right will accompany us throughout the campaign (or not), but assuming that the team is going to surprise and qualify for the Euros for the first time in its history, Zahavi may regret it for a long time to come.

No one can take away from Mezavi the great career he has had.

In Hapoel, Maccabi, China, Holland and the national team.

His numbers are crazy, his goals are amazing and exciting, and assuming that Maccabi Tel Aviv will not win the championship this season, and since Zahabi does not have many years left to play, it is a shame that he, the greatest winner of Israeli football, will watch the Israeli national team play in the European Championship from the couch at home. Even if The chance that the team will advance is uncertain (and it is not), Zahavi must not take this risk.

Too bad.

At Willy Rothensteiner, Zahavi enjoys a special status.

I can appreciate that if the Austrian coach had decided that no player would get a room by himself, Zahavi would not have issued an ultimatum.

The claim that Yossi Benyon and Alon Hazan don't really want him in the national team is not true.

And let's say it's true, let's say, you know how many players were called up to the national team in the past and weren't that well liked by the coach?


And not only with us.

Many of them both played and succeeded.

He must not take the risk.

And let's say that Zhabi is afraid of not being in the team, let's say that he is bothered by the fact that he will no longer be the biggest star of the team, this is also not a good reason to give up on the team.

Certainly not the one whose synonym is Winner.

And let's say that Zahabi is not planned to be in the first team in the national team's matches, after all, with the luck that pursues him everywhere, he is still able to come off the bench and arrange for the national team the promotion goal in the last match in Andorra.

With all due respect to Zahavi's professional preparation before games (and there is respect), the feeling is that he can survive in a shared room with a player without harming his preparation for the game.

Besides, if he is weak in the game, he can always complain that it is because of the poor preparation.

Eran Zahavi Patriot.

He has already proven it many times.

And since he is like that, he must come down from the tree he climbed to prove to all of us that the team for him is above all.

Above the successful Eran Zahavi brand.

Zahavi can come out big from this move.

He should inform the Benion that he is making the professional decision, even choose the player to be in the room with him, and be part of one of the most talented teams we have had here.

Even if Zahavi's position is harmed, even if he sees closely the passing of the baton to the new stars, he will still be Zahavi.

The national team squad for the upcoming campaign will be loaded with stars, and most of them are young people who are relatively inexperienced in major Euro qualifiers for the national team.

With all due respect to the new stars of the team: Solomon, Glouch, Thai Bribo, Lial Abda, Shawn Weissman, and especially to the new ones among them: Mahmoud Jaber, Muhammad Canaan, Omri Gandelman and other young people.

and not only.

The dream is bigger than that: despite the storm, Zahavi must find a way to be in the team

remains a revered figure.

For everyone, Zahavi was and remains a role model.

He is a revered figure, and he can (and must) contribute to the team in the psychological and social aspect as well, and infect the young stars with his winership.

Even if it will sometimes be from the bench.

Paulo Dybala did not stop encouraging his friends from the bench in the World Cup, even though he hardly saw a minute of grass (also due to injury), but he was enthusiastic like a class boy.

Also from the bench.

And precisely at the decisive moment, just before the end of extra time in the final against France, he came in to be one of the kickers in the penalty shootout.

And Dybala, like a great man, scored a penalty.

Even with a few minutes in the World Cup, he now holds the title of World Champion.

Despite all the young stars, even though Hazan and Benyon mainly want players who play defense, Zahavi has something to sell in the team.

So it's true, Hazan and Benyon intend to entrust the keys to the team to Manor Solomon and Oskar Gloch (rightfully so), but with all due respect to the big stars that have suddenly emerged for us in the last year or two, Zazabi still has no replacement in free kicks, we don't have an artist like him.

And the statistics, as you know, prove that many goals are scored from free kicks.

Hazan and Benyon are currently forming the national team's squad for the first game next month, this is the time for Zahabi to surprise Israeli football fans and announce that he has no preconditions.

His ego will not be hurt.

on the contrary.
