Coach Ofir Haim: "I am so happy. From the first moment I told everyone that we are coming here to make history. I told everyone that we are a better team by a gap than all the other teams, and that it ended like this at the last second is just sweeter. I told the players that when it is hard, it is "The sweetest - and it really was like that. Meanwhile there was also a terrible attack in the country and it crushed me to pieces, but as much as I can dedicate this victory - we are a strong nation that always wins in the end."

Contact Ili Madmon: "I want to say first of all that we share in the grief of the victims of the attack. We dedicate this victory to the people of Israel, it is a victory of the whole country. We are very happy and it is great fun. In the 88th minute, it's just a heart and not an ability. "

Oren Hasson, chairman of the association: "The huge investment in the young teams today yielded an excellent achievement with qualifying for the European Championships.

Congratulations to coach Ofir Haim, technical director Yila Hus, deputy technical director Bonnie Ginzburg and teams who see the fruits of their labor.

And above all to the young players, full of talent, commitment and pride.

"There is another time to celebrate the illegal immigration, which takes place in painful circumstances with innocent civilians who were murdered for the sake of their lives."
