Still not going to Eran Zehavi at PSV Eindhoven. The star of the Israeli national team, who has accustomed us to huge numbers in his teams in recent years, has not scored a field goal in his last five games and generally suffers from bad luck on penalties – when tonight (Sunday) missed the penalty spot and his team parted ways with 1: 1 from Twente.
Watch Zahavi’s missed penalty
Zehavi provided a weak performance, was replaced in the 69th minute and the leading sports website in the Netherlands, “Football”, received the lowest score among the players of both teams – only 4. “Zahavi’s miss cost dearly in Anshada,” read the headline of the game.
PSV coach Roger Schmidt explained the ability of his players: “Some of the players are a bit tired, especially those who played on Wednesday with their national teams.” Zehavi, it will be recalled, recorded 90 minutes in the Israeli team’s 0: 1 victory over Scotland in the closing game of the League of Nations campaign.
“Zahavi made a very bad impression,” Gelderlander wrote. Twente’s equalizer, by the way, came from another penalty that the opposing team received this time, and it read: “Where Zahavi failed, Danilo Dyke.”
