The Israel women's national football team (Hebrew: נבחרת ישראל בכדורגל לנשים‎) represents Israel in international women's football. The Israel women's national football team was established in 1997. Women's Football in Israel was developed as an upside down pyramid by first opening the national team and then after 2 years opening the first women's football league in Israel. Women's Football in Israel is struggling to develop because it is lacking investment.

History[edit]

Women's football in Israel first appeared in 1970, with several clubs being formed in the following years. However, these clubs folded, except for the M.I.L.N (Moa'don Israeli LeKaduregel Nashim (Hebrew: מועדון ישראלי לכדורגל נשים‎, lit. Israeli Club for Women's Football)), which continued touring and playing exhibition matches in Israel and abroad.[2] During this period a team representing Israel played a match against Netherlands, losing 0–12.[3]

In 1997, following FIFA orders, the IFA established a women's national team ahead of the 1999 FIFA women's World Cup. Rony Schneider was appointed as team manager and supervised a series of trials, which resulted in a 26 women squad, which played its first official match against Romania on 2 November 1997.[4]

As of April 2015, the national team played 95 matches (31 wins, 7 draws, 57 loses), scoring 111 goals. The team is yet to make an appearance in either the World Cup or the Women's Euro.
