Israel’s national team reeling after Bosnia setback

Israel’s hopes of qualifying for Euro 2016 are hanging by a thread following Friday’s 3-1 defeat to Bosnia and Herzegovina in Zenica, the blue-and-white’s third consecutive loss in Group B.

Israel was brimming with confidence after beating Bosnia 3-0 in Haifa last November for its third straight victory to start the campaign.

However, Friday’s loss to Bosnia, which came on the back of home defeats to Wales and Belgium in March, has crushed the national team’s confidence, and not only all but ended any chance of automatic qualification, but also left Israel with plenty to do to finish in third place and advance to a playoff.
