Tzahi Ilos (born August 13, 1978 in Hadera, Israel) is a retired footballer. Ilos is the current captain of the Israel national beach soccer team and he also was the coach of the national side.


Ilos started his career in Maccabi Haifa as a youth player but never played in the senior team. He moved to Hapoel Haifa in the Old Liga Leumit but never managed to fulfill his potential and went to play in small teams in the lower levels of the Israeli football league system, teams like: Hakoah Ramat Gan, Hapoel Hadera, Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona. After 3 years in the lower levels he got signed by Maccabi Netanya and returned to the top division of Israel. His time in the team turned out to be the highlight of his career and after a year and a half in Maccabi Netanya he returned to Hapoel Haifa and after one season in Hapoel Haifa he returned to play in the lower levels in Israel. In the summer of 2007 Ilos became the biggest name in the Israel Beach Soccer League and also got to be the captain of the Israel national beach soccer team.
