Israel has been packing all eleven players into the final third for most of the second half. It seemed it would only be a matter of time. It took fifteen minutes for Russia to break through and tie the match. Now, Israel has made a few changes and they look to be a little bit more involved. Russia still has a lot of possession. If I were English I don’t think I’d be able to sit down.
Russia has the midfield right now. Israel need to make a change of some sort to improve their play in the middle of the pitch. Israel seem to only be playing one man in the middle at present. I have to give Israel credit for playing with as much heart as they are currently. I’ll keep updating while this game progresses.
