Hibs goalkeeper Ofir Marciano has been named in the Israel squad for their upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers after two year on the international sidelines.
Marciano has 11 caps for his country but hasn’t played involved since a 4-1 World Cup qualifying defeat by Spain in 2017 – making only one squad in between.
The Hibs ace is joined in the squad by Celtic’s Nir Bitton as the only Scottish-based players in the 23-man squad.
So far this season, Marciano has made 14 appearances for Hibs after missing a chunk of time at the start of the campaign with a finger injury.
The Israelis will play Slovenia and Austria next week as manager Andy Herzog looks to make a strong start to the qualifying campaign.
Despite Hibs’ poor league position, the keeper has done well for the Easter Road side since getting over his injury problems earlier in the campaign.
New boss Ofir Marciano appears to have put his faith in the keeper since taking the reins in Leith and the call-up for Marciano would justify that decision.
