Roy Revivo believes: "You can win the World Cup" | Israel today


Defender of the youth team for "Israel Today": "Can go as far as possible, we missed winning a Euro director"; "Not afraid of any team"; "It would be a dream to play in La Coruna like my father" • El-Yam Kanzapolski: "We had no expectations, people did not really relate, and in the end everyone saw that we had come a long way"

One of the stars of Israel's youth team is without a doubt Roy Revivo, who has proven his talent on the field game after game, regardless of the fact that his father is the legend of the past Haim Revivo. 

"With all the disappointment we wanted to bring the trophy, we still made history," Revivo told Israel Today in an interview.

"I want to thank everyone for the support, and thank Ofir Haim. What a coach he is, just like our friend, but when necessary he is also the coach and knows how to put us in place."

At the beginning of the tournament you imagined that you would reach the final? 

"Yes, from the beginning we believed. Before every game, Ofir Haim moved us in an amazing way, and we thought that after one time it was, but each time he managed to excite us again. We believe in ourselves, we believe we can go as far as possible, and I believe in the World Cup we can "We missed out on winning a Euro director."

People talk about you as the "golden generation", how do you leverage success? 

"It's not my job to answer such things, but I think in the 2004-2003 years there is a lot of talent and this success needs to be leveraged." 

What is the secret of the team? 

"Everyone loves everyone, even if it's the player competing for your position, really something outstanding. We are not afraid of any team, we are not interested in France or not France, and the fact is what happened."

There were her reports Coronia is following you, would you like to close a circle where your dad played? 

"I do not deal so much with all these things, I come to play and give my all, but yes it will be a dream to play there and in general in Spain. I am now returning from the team to Maccabi and I believe it will be fine." 

Kanzapolsky: "There is an amazing bunch here"

Another of the heroes of the youth team is the midfielder El-Yam Kanzapolski, who scored the second goal in the semi-final against the French team and he recalls: "The goal against them is a moment I will remember for a lifetime, the feeling was amazing, something indescribable in words. "We said we wanted to get far. People didn't really comment, and in the end everyone saw it."

Tell us a little about your relationship with Ofir Haim? 

"Ophir is an amazing person. I have never had such a relationship with a coach. He has a connection with the players he makes you feel like his friend and closest to him but the pitch is serious and he is something special." 

What can you expect from the World Cup? 

"There is still time until then and I do not know what fitness we will reach, but I believe that even in the World Cup we will reach as far as possible, there is an amazing bunch here."
