Jakarta, CNN Indonesia —
The Israeli and Spanish national teams have collectively lost to their respective opponents in the Euro 2024 Qualification, Wednesday (29/3) in the morning WIB.
Israel was forced to give up 3-0 to Switzerland in the second match of Group I Qualification for Euro 2024. Switzerland’s winning goals were scored by Ruben Vargas, Zeki Amdouni and Silvan Widmer.
This result made Israel slip to the bottom of Group I standings with a record of one draw and one defeat. Previously, Israel was only able to draw 1-1 at home to Kosovo.
Israel has recently been in the spotlight in Indonesia because of a wave of rejections for the U-20 Israel national team’s participation in the 2023 U-20 World Cup.
Various groups in Indonesia, including the Governor of Bali I Wayan Koster and the Governor of Central Java Ganjar Pranowo, also support the rejection of the arrival of the Israeli national team at the Indonesian U-20 World Cup.
Apart from not having diplomatic relations with Indonesia, the state of Israel was also accused of being one of the countries that did not support independence. Until now, the Zionist State is still at war with Palestine.
Elsewhere, Spain surprisingly lost 0-2 to Scotland at Hampden Park Stadium. Scotland’s two goals were bought up by Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay.
Spain’s defeat was somewhat surprising because previously Luis De La Fuente’s squad won a 3-0 landslide victory over Norway in the first game.
These results made Spain have to give up top spot to Scotland. McTominay et al have the right to top Group A standings with six points or three points ahead of Spain in second place.
