The Israel national team will open the Euro 2024 qualifiers with a match against Kosovo on Tuesday night in Bloomfield. Until now, for months, they have been dealing here with Zahavi's single or double room, Dia Saba whether or not he wants to be in the national team, Abu Fani making faces and together with the affairs of Atzili and Davor that the crowd pushed them out , the discourse surrounding the national team is about everything except football.
When you put all the noise behind you and concentrate on the task ahead, this could actually be one of the most exciting national teams we've had. We always say that "in Europe there are players who lead teams and only in Israel are 22-year-old players children". Our youngsters overseas is no longer exactly true, but still, we have no problem enjoying them under the title children, we even like it, the main thing is that they bring us the respect we deserve in the national team uniform.
A combination we were not used to seeing.

No matter how you turn it, this is already the team of Manor Solomon and Liel Abde and Ototo also of Oscar Gloch.
Solomon and Abda, the two main attacking players who made the jump abroad. Young men with a combination of speed, technique and strength that we were not used to seeing over the years. The 23-year-old Solomon has already become a household name in the Premier League and the 22-year-old Abda will still get there through success at Celtic Oskar Gloch, who is not yet 19 years old, is the expectation of all Israeli football since the European Youth Championship in the summer, and also Thai Bribo, the "old man" of this 25-year-old generation, although he does not receive the praise he deserves here, is doing well in Austria and is The safe way to advance to a higher league.
Throughout the 90s, every time the team is not successful, the duty of rejuvenating the team and giving the reins to the next generation comes up.
Part of the current event is planned, part due to constraints, but the current front line of the team is really different in its age level from anything we have seen in the past, when you can of course add to it the 27-year-old Shawn Weissman, who managed to impress in his way in the last games in which he got the opportunity.
And it's not just for the upcoming tournament, there is a front part here that will lead the team for many years to come.
He has not yet faced big tasks with the national team, he does not have the experience and numbers of players like Zahavi and Davor, but this is a different front part, different, more hard work, utilizing the speed and strengths of the front part players together with the magic of Gloch, this combination is the most advantage Great for this team.
To all this we have to add the 23-year-old Hamudi Canaan, who is currently on the rookie standard, but with the level of talent and ability he demonstrated this season in the MS Ashdod uniform, he could be a big surprise for the team in the upcoming tournament.

The Israeli national team is starting a campaign
Hazan defended himself: "I don't delete people."
Benyon replied: "I will not descend to a low level"
Natcho will leave the national team after Switzerland: "He did not receive the respect he deserved"
A game of interests: what is behind the mass escape from the national team?
The surprise of the team?

When pinning your hopes on this group, you also remember that in defense there are not too many refreshing innovations that are expected to change the order of the day.
The very fact that Miguel Vitor was called up to the national team, the fact that they are constantly looking for the second stopper to be with him and the difficulty of finding the balanced left defender who can do the job say it all.
Bennion and Hazan are trying to piece together a puzzle in defense, but it's hard to see this squad providing anything other than what we've seen so far, we have a shortage of quality defensive players and right now it seems like every gathering they're trying to scratch a fourth that will be up to the task.
Also in the link, summons like that of Gendelman, Jabbar who returned from injury and Hamodi Kanaan are refreshing.
At the end of the Beavers era, the link should take a different direction, more aggressive and fast.
Neta Lavi, Dor Peretz and Dolev Haziza are the "oldest" in the link, but they too have not yet led the team and this is a great opportunity for them.
Even if we pay some kind of price for the deterioration of a relatively new link, and with all due respect and appreciation to Beavers Natcho, the time has come for new blood to take the reins in the team's link permanently.
