The captain of the Israeli national team at the press conference before the match in Switzerland (Tuesday, 9:45 p.m.): "We will not come to cancel and look for 0:0." Alon Hazan admitted: "There are thoughts about a change in the lineup"


Summary: All tonight's goals from Euro 2024 qualifiers, 25.3 (Sport1)

The Israeli national team has arrived in Geneva and will shortly hold the final training session for the match against Switzerland in the second round of Euro 2024 qualifiers (Tuesday, 21:45), three days after the 1:1 draw at the Bloomfield Stadium against Kasobo.



Despite the home draw in the opening round and even though the team is hosted by the clear favorite to finish at the top of the house, the players believe that it is possible to surprise and come away with at least a point from the meeting in Geneva.

Coach Alon Hazan also spoke about this tonight at the press conference: "In every tournament there is an opportunity to do something. Switzerland is the best at home, but we will try to play our style of play. The goal is to qualify for the European Championship and I am not concerned with what our opponents want. I will not castrate players so that maybe If we defend, we'll do a miracle and lose honorably or draw. Changes in the lineup? There are thoughts about that, we're still thinking about how to play and we'll do everything to advance with the best 11."

"I won't defend for a miracle to happen and get a draw."

Hazan was also asked about the situation in Israel and said: "I am a father, a husband, a son, a coach and a citizen of the State of Israel. We care and we care every moment for the country, because above all we are citizens of a country who want the best for the country and for the people to have the common sense to understand that no matter who In the end he will feel like a winner, the State of Israel may lose. The information flows to us all the time, but we have a role we were sent to - to bring respect to the people and it doesn't matter which side. We want to bring respect to the country and make everyone happy."



Captain Beavers Natcho, who is not clear if he will participate once more tomorrow after already saying goodbye to the fans on Saturday in Bloomfield, added referring to the delicate situation in Israel: "The situation is reaching us, it has an effect and I wish we could do good for two hours tomorrow. It is not easy to disconnect from what is happening in Israel. Regarding Switzerland, They are the strongest team in the house, but we will not come back and look for 0:0. We are an attacking team and they also ask us to dare."



Following on from the national coach's words about possible changes, compared to the 11 that started against Kosovo, Alon Hazan is expected to make a change or two, while in the lineup picture is Mahmoud Jaber who may be given priority over Oscar Gloch or Dolev Haziza due to being a more defensive midfielder.

However, final decisions will only be made after the final training session tonight.
