About the match

After narrowly missing out on a World Cup playoff berth, Romania will head to Netanya Stadium on Tuesday for a friendly against Israel in the final tune-up match for both countries before the UEFA Nations League gets underway in June.

The Blue and Whites dropped a fourth successive road fixture on Saturday, losing 2-0 against Germany, while the Romanians fell 1-0 at home to Greece last Friday.

Despite a promising start to their 2022 World Cup qualification campaign, collecting seven points from their first three fixtures, in the end, Israel could not compete with veteran sides like Denmark and Scotland, finishing the group stage in a distant third with 16 points.

They come into this encounter unbeaten in four straight home games, defeating Austria (5-2), Moldova (2-1) and the Faroe Islands (3-2) over that stretch.

In their previous fixture versus Die Mannschaft, some outstanding goalkeeping kept the four-time World Cup winners at bay until the 36th minute as a far superior German team thoroughly dominated the Israelis.

Under the guidance of caretaker-manager Gadi Brumer, the goal will be to provide some stability and consistency within this group in preparation for their opening fixture in the UEFA Nations League, when they host Iceland on June 2.

Brumer should not have too much trouble getting acquainted with this team, with many faces who will be familiar to the South African born coach.

Most of the current players feature in Israel for Maccabi Tel Aviv, where Brumer served as an assistant manager from 2005-06, and he is currently the coach for their U-16 side.

Israel had little difficulty in starting their qualifiers brightly, scoring the opening goal in all but three of those games, although had they been able to hang on to the lead they had in both of their matches against Scotland, the Chosen Team could still be in the hunt for a berth in Qatar.
