Injured Benayoun to start on bench

Israel captain Yossi Benayoun will start on the bench for Wednesday's World Cup qualifier against Greece in Heraklion due to a hamstring injury, the Israeli FA said. During last Saturday's 1-1 draw against the same opponents in Group Two, Benayoun played for 77 minutes before being carried off on a stretcher with another leg injury. The Liverpool midfielder turned out for Israel despite tearing his hamstring three weeks ago.
