We came to dream: The Israeli team gave hope for promotion to the next stage Israel today


Although on paper Estonia was less preferable - its past achievements prove that the team's victory is no less than an impressive achievement • Guy Goodes won for proper preparation for the game • And Gal Makal and Guy Pnini proved who the adults are responsible for the pitch • Summary of victory over Estonia


It was not a trivial victory but an impressive achievement of the Israeli team.

Some will say, oh really, Estonia is not one of the basketball lions on the continent and its entry into the upcoming Eurobasket was also due to the corona bubbles.

But Estonia has already beaten Serbia and Italy in Tallinn and defeated us by 16 points four years ago and plays in the Yugoslav style of yesteryear and given that we lost Tomer Ginat, the team's solid anchor at the start of the second half it is a beautiful and important victory that probably guarantees our promotion to the next stage.


There were quite a few reviews of Guy Goodes after the victory over Poland.

We did not get ready enough for the Polish pressure and in the last quarter a problematic vehicle caused us to get stuck for five minutes without a point.

This time Goodes won on proper preparation for the game, as Israel went inside and brought in 25 points in the first half from the inside players.

Although the area we moved to at the start of the second quarter opened the shooting lanes for the Estonians, Goodes returned from the area on time and his bet on Nimrod Levy, a player who did not receive credit at Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Jerusalem, proved himself a second game in a row.

Levy came out wonderful on defense for the Estonian scenes and provided a great double-double game: 10 points and 11 rebounds !.

Goodes also deserves credit for the trust he placed in John Di Bortolomeo who provided the clutch moves, despite a problematic opening that seemed a direct continuation of his weak ability at Maccabi Tel Aviv.

3. The

golden generation of the reserve at the end of the last decade should take the Israeli team to the heights over the next decade.

But this generation needs an experienced leader who will cross the road safely.

Gal Makal, this coming March 34, along with Guy Pnini against Poland, have become the responsible adults.

Those with the right actions in moments of stress and the right direction in most minutes of the game (ten assists per stick) allow us to dream of the 2023 World Cup.
