Spain-Israel: My Match analysis
Hi, today I’d like to dedicate the post to the national team of Israel. As you might know already, it is Spain’s rival this Friday at Gijón and after spending a whole season in this country I feel capable of writing about the match and highlighting a couple of players.
Israel is a national team that has increased its level thanks to important players that have left the country to play in European and Asian leagues. Against Spain I think they are going to wait on their area, defending, trying to steal the ball in three quarters and trying to counter-attack. Without spaces they will be strong, but if you achieve finding spaces then they are vulnerable. For many it is an unknown team but I invite you all to see the rankings to see that they are doing quite well. Spain is favourite, but they’ll have to give their best. I’ll be very concentrated on the match, of course I want Spain to win but I’m happy to see my teammates on the list.
Some of the best players of Israel:
– Tal Ven Haim (Maccabi Tel Aviv). He is a striker but he is lethal on the wing. He dominates the one vs one. He tends to take the interior part and ending with both foots.
– Tomer Hemed (Brighton). A known footballer in Spain as he played at Mallorca. He is performing quite well this season in England. With spaces he can be dangerous. He has goal and is dangerous in the area.
– Eli Dasa (Maccabi Tel Aviv). Right ful back. On transitions he is very good counter-attacking. He is quick and the ball doesn’t burn him when confronting a one vs one.
– Neir Bitton (Celtic Glasgow). He isn’t always on the starting eleven at Celtic but he has quality and in his national team he is very confident. Midfielder or playmaker, according to the coach’s system.
