Soccer: Blue-and-white visits Croatia for friendly

Israel begins the post-Eli Gutman era when it visits Croatia in an international friendly in Osijek on Wednesday, still without a full-time replacement for the previous national team coach.

Under-17 national coach Alon Hazan was asked to guide the team against Croatia, with the Israel Football Association only officially beginning its search for the new head coach last week, five months after the departure of Gutman following the failed Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.
