Tips for Winners: The Keys of Israel's Coaches for the Youth Team Israel today


"Come free" • "Play with tactical discipline" • "Express talent" • "Team defense" • Prominent Israeli coaches mark their key points ahead of the Euro final against England

Israel's youth team will advance tonight (Friday, 21:00) to one of the greatest games in the history of Israeli football, with only one victory away from the coveted title - European champion.

To end the historic tournament in Slovakia with the trophy, Ofir Haim and his trainees will have to go through a difficult hurdle in the final in the form of England, whose we lost in the home stage (1: 0), but as our team has already proven - there is no opponent it can not win.

Towards the big moment, we spoke at "Israel Today" with some of the prominent coaches in the industry, so that they will give tips to the young group and mark the keys to tonight's match.

Guy Luzon, coach of the young team

"In a game like this we have to come loose, like we came against the French team in the semi-finals, all the pressure was on them and we did our part when we secured our place in the World Cup. We come as a clear underdog to the final, so naturally all the pressure will be on England "There is no pressure, and we will have to play our game with confidence as we have done so far."

Elisha Levy, former coach of the Israeli national team

"Our youth team reached this unprecedented achievement because they proved, no matter who they played against - England or France, that they and the professional team led by Ofir Haim have everything it takes in today's football to succeed - talent, physicality, team spirit, strong mentality, discipline "Tactical and of course a strong belief in themselves. These are exactly the parameters they need to bring in this game against England as well. Good luck!"

Bnei Lem, coach of Maccabi Netanya

"I saw the previous game against England, and it's exactly the same principle. Both the French and the English are a strong, aggressive and physical team, and also in terms of football they have a lot of qualities and these are very good teams. I think our loss to England at home in the tournament came because they are a good team. But also because of the pitch conditions.

The grass was very muddy, the ball did not move, and we have a very technical team.

What is needed tonight is faith.

I see how Ofir Haim instills faith in them and trusts them, and with good and correct tactical standing, and a quick exit to passing attacks from suitable players, it is possible to do so.

Winning the same opponent twice in a row in a few days is not easy, so anything is possible for our team. "

Shai Barda, Maccabi Petah Tikva coach

"The key point in this final is, in my opinion, the mental matter. I have no doubt that Ofir Haim and the entire professional team will work with them on this side, but what is more - this youth team is really winking at something else we have not seen before."

Sharon Mimar, more than 10 years of experience as a coach

"The key in the final against England will be the team defensive game. As we saw against the strong French team, the link lines and defensive lines plus help from the front and striker created a density that made it very difficult for the opponent. .

Slobodan Drapic, head coach since 2008

"The team just has to bring itself - the typical football, the pressure after losing the ball, and bringing the talent to the front. We have an advantage over the English because I keep saying it's terribly hard to beat that team twice. So the English beat us at home, now it's our turn to win . We can do it".
