As part of the desire to make the team a single unit and as the message that is constantly conveyed is that the team is the star, no unusual pressure is felt in the hotel in Herzliya in view of the injury of Liel Abda last night (Monday) at the end of training.
The team would certainly want to start the preparations on the right foot and not deal this morning with the health of a Celtic player or his ability to show up for training tonight, but that is the situation and we are dealing with it.
"It's not an ideal situation, but there's no panic," said an official in the Israel national team this morning, "Obviously every injury to a player is a flat tire, but the privilege in the national team is that you can invite a large and diverse squad and you have to be ready for any scenario."
One way or another, the team still hopes that Abda will not sit out Saturday's game against Kosovo and is waiting for a test that he will undergo by the team's doctor, Dr. Udi Kaufman. Among them Shagiv Yehezkel, Dolev Haziza,

there is an improvement.

Abda felt a muscle injury yesterday towards the end of practice when the team was practicing goal kicks.
Later that night at the national team hotel, he reported that he felt better, but as mentioned only a test he will undergo and maybe even an ultrasound will clarify the situation.
Tonight, as mentioned, the national team will hold the second training session in Shafiim, in which there will already be full attendance after Eli Dessa, Oskar Gloch, Doron Leidner and Tai Bribo were absent from the training session yesterday, having returned to Israel only during the day.
As of this morning at the time of the match, it will be raining in Tel Aviv and it is possible that because of this, the team has not yet been able to sell all the tickets. However, it is estimated that Bloomfield will eventually be completely full.
