Israel boost for Benayoun

By Simon Griver, May 23, 2014

Yossi Benayoun has been recalled to Israel’s squad for the forthcoming friendlies against Mexico and Honduras.

The former national captain is looking to make a record 95th appearance for the national team.

But before playing for Israel, Benayoun (left) will be hoping to help QPR return to the Premier League in tomorrow’s Championship promotion play-off final against Derby County at Wembley.

Benayoun, 34, looks set to leave Loftus Road regardless of the outcome.

Former club Maccabi Haifa are eager to sign the midfielder who has reportedly promised an answer by next week.
