Israel will be without two star players - West Ham United midfield Yossi Benayoun and Bolton Wanderers defender Tal Ben Haim - for Saturday's European Championship qualifier against Macedonia. Benayoun and Ben Haim are both suspended for the match in Skopje after picking up yellow cards in Israel's last game against England in March. Coach Dror Kashtan said he was mindful of a Macedonia team that held England to a 0-0 draw last October. Goalkeeper Dudu Awat, who will fill in as captain in Benayoun's absence, said it would be a tough game without two key players, "but I believe the players that are here will do the job."
