With Gutman gone, Benayoun back on blue-and-white

Yossi Benayoun is back in the Israel squad, being called up by interim coach Alon Hazan for next week’s friendly against Croatia, nine months after he made his last appearance for the national team.

The 35-year-old’s international career looked to be over after previous coach Eli Gutman didn’t call him up for any of the team’s Euro 2016 qualifiers. However, the Israel appearance record holder with 96 caps, never retired from the blue-and-white, leaving the door open to play again for the national team.
