Israel played Austria away on the matchday 7 of the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying round

Shakhtar midfielder Manor Solomon appeared in Israel’s starting XI and played for 90 minutes without being replaced. The Israelis scored the opener (with Zahavi putting his name on the scoresheet), failing to keep their lead as the hosts equalised before the break (Lazaro), also netting two more goals in the second half (Hinteregger, Sabitzer). Thus, Austria claimed a 3-1 win.
Israel are sitting in the 5th spot in Group G, still retaining a theoretical chance of advancing to the play-offs.
