Israel football chiefs are upset with former Bolton Wanderers midfielder Idan Tal.
Tal reckons Steve McClaren's England are not intelligent enough to play 'smart' football.
The remarks by ex- Bolton midfielder Tal have caused a stir in his own camp and made him unpopular.
An Israeli FA source told The Sun: "He should keep his mouth shut.
"Now England will be mad and will try to beat us 5-0."
