Will they do it again?
Israel's women's dominoes team will open tomorrow (Friday) its appearance in the European Championship qualifiers to be held in Malta, with the aim of advancing to the final tournament for the third time in a row.
The team, led by Dimitris from Greek Brutas, will open on Friday against Portugal (18:00) which is supposed to be the key game, on Saturday (18:00) the girls will meet France and finish the qualifiers on Sunday (11:30) against host Malta.
"The first game against Portugal is the key game for us because if we win this game, even if we lose afterwards against France, I believe we will win Malta and qualify," said Brutas. "Our team is very young but the players have experienced enough. "How important this qualifying tournament is for us. If we succeed in qualifying, the Israeli dominoes will have two teams in the European Championship - men and women, and this is an achievement that only the top countries in the industry can do. It will make us very proud and happy."
Indeed, if Israel rises, it will be only ten days after the men's team did so, with the women's team playing in the 2018 European Championships in Spain, where Israel was ranked 10th, and in 2020 in Hungary, the Israelis finished in 9th place.
The European Championship itself will open on August 27, with currently apart from the host country, there are also Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Russia, Spain who automatically advanced from the 2020 championship and Germany, Greece, Romania and Serbia who advanced from the qualifiers.
