The goals of the week, 22.3 (Sport1)
After the first two days in which there were training sessions designed to gradually introduce the players to Alon Hazan's requirements, this evening (Wednesday) the Israeli national team already held a full tactical training session, with the national coach already placing the players he plans to start with in the lineup on Saturday night against Kosovo in the Euro 2024 qualifiers (20: 00).

As things look at the moment, in the controversial positions that Hazan had (the brakeman next to Miguel Vitor, the winger who will replace Abda, the goal striker) - it seems that Hazan is starting to settle on Raz Shlomo as Vitor's partner, Dolev Haziza should be the man to fill Abda's slot and Shawn Weissman will open as a pioneer
It is still not final, and tomorrow morning in another closed tactical training of the chosen one it will be even more clear if this is the trend of Hazan.
But as of tonight, and with three days left until the game that will open the Euro qualifying campaign, it seems that the lineup is set:
in goal Omri Glazer, in defense Eli Dessa, Miguel Vitor, Raz Shlomo and Doron Leidner, in midfield Dor Peretz, Neta Lavie and Oskar Gloch, and in attack Dolev Haziza, Manor Solomon and Sean Weissman.

There is still a possibility of change, when Iyad Abu Abid can start as a stopper instead of Shlomo, another offensive player in Makonem Haziza, Tai Bribo instead of Weissman - but right now the priority is for the players that Hazan will get used to this evening.
There is cautious optimism in the Israeli national team.
The feelings are good, and all in all, after starting on the left leg with Abda's injury, there is an expectation of a good performance.
Undoubtedly, against the background of the fact that all 30 thousand tickets have been purchased and Bloomfield will be full, the players are encouraged.
"It moves us very much, we hope to give the fans satisfaction and good reasons to return home with pride," said a player from the team's hotel this evening.
