Israel's soccer national team captain Yossi Benayoun said he will consider how to move on following the failure of the team against Latvia on Saturday evening. Israel lost 0-1.
"I am not sure I will be part of this campaign, or the one after. When I see I do not contribute, I will retire," Benayoun was quoted by Army Radio as saying.
The team was booed by its fans at the end of the match, and Benayoun said "I would also boo [coach Dror] Kashtan's team."
Kashtan, on his side, said the game was a disappointment but added "we have been disappointed for 40 years." He said he had no intention of resigning. Regarding Benayoun's statement, Kashtan said "it happens that a player expresses his discontent, but it happens all over the world."
