Yossi Benayoun will defy Liverpool’s wishes by playing for Israel in their 2010 World Cup qualifiers this week.

The midfielder has been out of action for a fortnight after suffering a hamstring injury.

But the former West Ham man is determined to captain his country against Greece this weekend.

Although he admits that he may suffer further injury, he feels that helping Israel towards a World Cup spot justifies his actions.

“I had a little problem with Liverpool,” said Benayoun.

“They didn’t really want me to come to Israel.”

“But as long as I know I will be able to give 100 per cent I will play, even if it means risking my health.”

“I’ve been going through intensive treatment in the last couple of weeks and I’m almost fully fit, but sometimes it’s still painful.”

“Missing out on Saturday’s match would be the biggest disappointment of my career.”

“I’m feeling much better now and I hope that in a day or two I will be able to train with the team.”

“If that happens, I will be able to play. Two weeks’ absence isn’t that significant.”
