This match has been announced as one of those fateful, because a draw against Greece at home did not satisfy the ambition of players, staff, supporters and fans. Croatia manager Slaven Bilic eventual victory would be bought peace to the resumption of representative matches, that is, not counting routine match against Malta for a month, the spring of next year and two games against Georgia. Croatia will be without Srna, Petric and Jelavic, while the performance of Strinic is questionable, but he willprobably play. Optimism is present, and a positive balance with Israel in mutual matches, giving extra optimism. The defense is solid with Simunic, Schildenfeld, Corluka and Strinić, middlle line is extremely creative and dangerous to the opponent's goal, Vukojevic as a defensive midfielder in front of whom will play extremely offensive trio of Modric-Rakitic-Kranjcar, and attackers Olic and Eduardo. If the defense maintain concentration, middlefield line and the attack will surely create many good chances.
Israel is a strong home team. Today will be without their best player Yossi Benayoun, but the coach Louis Fernandez is very optimistic. He said that he have a recipe for victory against the Croatia, and he know their weaknesses, but he is very aware of quality of Croatian players and he will be surely satisfied with one point in this match.
