The Israeli national team will conclude its Euro 21 qualifying campaign on Tuesday (45:5, Sport 2024) with an inconsequential away game against Andorra. Due to the lack of interest, coach Alon Hazan will allow players who have not received minutes in the last three games to start in 11. Goalkeeper Daniel Peretz, defender Avishai Cohen, defender Stav Lemkin and striker Dean David, who have not played a minute so far, may start in the lineup.

More significant players, such as defender Miguel Vitor, midfielder Netta Lavi and others, are expected to be rested. Eli Dassa is injured and will not play, as is Eran Zahavi who was released from the squad due to overloads. Coach Alon Hazan is already talking about the Nations League playoffs in March and explained what he has been going through in recent days, after the failure to achieve a single win in games against Kosovo, Switzerland and Romania: "All kinds of thoughts go through my head, whether I made a bad decision, one way or another. We'll clear our heads and make preparations so we don't end up in a situation where we miss next time." Defender Sean Goldberg added: "We're all very disappointed. We wanted, believed and expected and unfortunately it didn't happen. We will do everything to get as prepared as possible for the playoffs."
