The first practice of the Israel national team in preparation for the start of the Euro 2024 qualifying campaign was held this evening (Monday) at the House of Representatives in Shafiim.

As you know, on Saturday the Israeli national team will host Kosovo at the Bloomfield Stadium and three days later they will be hosted in Switzerland and today the first practice was held for the meetings, still without the legionnaires Oskar Gloch, Eli Dassa, Thai Bribo and Doron Leidner who will join the preparations tomorrow.

Miguel Vitor said before the start of the campaign: "We are excited about the way we finished the Nations League, we did a good job in this campaign and now we are excited to start a new campaign at home. We have not studied Kosovo yet and although it is a new country, it has excellent players in quality teams. We will study them This week, but we know this is a very strong team."

On the expectations for Israel to qualify for Euro 2024: "We haven't been in a major tournament in more than 40 years, so it's normal that we're not favorites, but we have to be realistic. Kosovo is a team at our level and we can finish in second place. We start at home and it's always important to start a campaign with three points and not to lose points at home. Switzerland is the favorite to qualify and then there are 2-3 teams that will fight for second place and we are one of them. We will meet high-quality and strong opponents that we must respect."

A new campaign begins.

The stopper was also asked about the squad that showed up for the new campaign, in their absence Eran Zahavi, Dia Saba and Omar Atzili who retired from the team stand out: "There are very high quality young players in the team and there are also experienced players like me, I think it is a good combination that can lead us to good things, but we have to take a step forward. Step by step and think first of all about the game on Saturday. I also think it's time to stop messing with players who aren't here."

The national coach Alon Hazan and the professional manager Yossi Banyon will have to decide which of the defenders in the squad will start alongside Miguel Vitor, and a fight between Shawn Weissman and Tai Bribo is also expected at the edge, but in the other positions the decisions have probably already been made - Omari Glazer, Eli Desa, Miguel Vitor and Doron Leidner are expected to be in goal Netta Lavi and Dor Peretz will come up in defense and in midfield.

Oskar Gloch should play in the front with Manor Solomon and Liel Abda.
