Coach of the Israel national soccer team Elisha Levy decided to appoint Eran Zahavi as the team captain. Zahavi has already represented Israel 30 times in international tournaments. Sheran Yeini was named assistant captain.

“Eran is the natural choice for captain,” said Levy. “He is in excellent shape and rightfully considered the leading player in Israeli soccer, charismatic and a true-winner. I am convinced that Eran will know how to professionally and socially lead the team and join the glorious list of those who were so worthy of the honor and named the captains of the Israeli team.”
