Israel 2006/08 away - Dekel Keinan #21 (Euro 2008 Qualification)

Match worn/issued Israel 2006/08 away shirt, issued to or worn by center back Dekel Keinan #21 in the Euro 2008 qualification matches vs. Russia at home (17/11/2007) and Macedonia at home (21/11/2007), both played at the Ramat Gan national stadium. Israel won both matches, 2-1 and 1-0 respectively, with Keinan playing the full 90 minutes in both matches.

These couple of matches were in the very beginning of Keinan's career with the national team, being only his 2nd and 3rd appearances for the national team. He would go on to make a total of 27 appearances for the national team between 2007 and 2013. He was also called up for a friendly match in May 2016, but was an unused substitute.

This was the last Puma design to be worn in competitive matches by Israel, as they switched to adidas in 2008 after many years with Puma. (There was actually a new puma design made after this one, but it was only worn in two friendly matches before abruptly switching to adidas)
