Zehavi: "Returning to the team - the best decision of my career" Israel today


The striker, who scored his 33rd goal for Moldova against Moldova and hit the top of the conquests at the expense of Motla Spiegler: "I did not believe I would pass him" • Coach Willy Rotensteiner: "Feels like a lot of people appreciate me, do not listen to what is said about me

Eran Zehavi will never forget this evening, probably never. 

The Israeli striker, who won in a 1: 2 victory over Moldova at Toto-Turner Stadium, raised his tally to 33 goals in the national team uniform and overtook Motla Spiegler on the way to the top.

"The biggest thing in my career was getting back on the team," Zahavi said at the end.

"I stay here as long as I feel good and they want me. When I feel I have nothing to contribute - I will turn the stage for young people." 

On the record: "If they had told me that I would pass Motella Spiegler in the table of the king of the national team goals, I would not believe, certainly not after everything I went through. Motela is a football legend, you can see the paragon. "And even before the previous games, it was clear to him and he really pardoned me. It's a great honor that he was here to see it."

Team coach Willy Rotensteiner also had something to say at the end of the game: "Again we suffered from a stationary situation and it's annoying. We worked on it a lot. We will try to win the next two games against Austria and Faroe Islands. Feeling progress even though we did not play well tonight. I have a contract until May 2022. "I enjoy working with the actors and feel that a lot of people compliment me and appreciate me. I don't listen to what they say."
