Well, the game against Switzerland has passed and many mistakes to correct. Now we face Moldova at Kishinau where 3 points are a MUST if we want to qualify. The hosts have lost in their opener to Latvia 2-1 and this could prove to be good to Israel as they come with less confidence to the game.

Based on the squad we have and on the game last Saturday, what should be our lineup?

Remembering that Collauti is out due injury and Alberman will make a test to see his fitness, but most probably won't attend the match.

my lineup: Awat, Kozukin, Strul, Ben Haim, Ziv, Cohen, Ohayon (if Baruchyan is not fit) Benayoun, Buzaglo, Barda, Ben Sahar

I would prefer Toama over Cohen, Cohen makes a lot of dumb fouls, at least Toama has some meaningful contribution to the game. We can play Ohayon in front of the back four. Other than that, I agree with your lineup.

I also want to see Ben Shushan make a start cause he has been solid.

Im guessing its best to keep Awatt in net, but im still not sure about Davidovitch. I wish we had some more time to train for this. But well see how Awatt does. We should dominate easily in Moldova and should not have any problems taking a 3-0 lead over them.
i still fear them and they have alot of capabilities and i hope we dont see that they dont!

My line-up:


------------------- Awate -----------------

Kozokin --- Ben-Haim ----- Keinan --- Ziv(Ben-Dayan)

--- Alberman(Bozaglo) --- T. Cohen --- Toama

------------------ Benayoun -----------------

----------- Sahar ----------- Barda ----------


After Switzerland, I'm speechless. I saw the whole game and it was a game we should've won...

Moldova is a must-win game. If we don't get 3 points from this game, we can kiss South Africa good bye! Therefore, I'm leaning towards the 4-3-1-2 formation. We have enough offensive power to kick the net out of the stadium, but our defense will be the key to victory. We have to stop conceding!!!

who was it again who had this huge fear of Moldova? Be prepared for a nervewrecking evening against the mighty Moldova :D

But for all others who are confident in an Israeli victory (including me) : I bet a 1-2 or 1-3 victory for Israel. If this is done, a start with 4 out of 6 would definitely be OK and bring options to the future campaign. I believe in Israels chances to qualify, the 2 points dropped against Switzerland are a shame but then the late comeback and determination to fight for the point gives me confidence that this Israeli team can achieve great things.

Come on Israel!!

Israel has to win it (BTW nice odds for Israel - so I will bet)

I hope Barda and Ben Sahar will play as striker, but please no Ben Shushan. Benayoun has to play in center with Toama on the left and Buzaglo on the right. I am not sure if Tamir Cohen should play, I would prefer Ohayon.

Just a reminder...2 hours before the game starts...

The site of the stadium in Kishenev (Chisnau) is the site of the 1903 Easter Day Pogrom where hundreds of thousdands of Jews died in a few days of tsarist sponsored rampage......

1-0 Moldova. I cant believe this. wonderful header by the moldovan striker, but our defence slept.

Ben Sahar is injury and is substituted by Maor Buzaglo. But WHAT A BRUTAL TACKLING by the opponent. This had to be double red.

The luck is not with us.

Another referee decision against us. Kozokin has been held in the box. But the spanish ref didnt give the 100% penalty.

Moldova is still very dangerous with high balls. I think Ben Haim and Keinan are not concentrated enough.
