We succeeded, and not by chance: Israeli football took the high road Israel today


The good work of the big clubs in the youth departments, and the coaches who came from abroad took us up • This is the time to leverage the success for cooperation on issues of value

There was no similarity between our promotion match for the European Championship in 2007, and the promotion match held on Tuesday in Israel.

So, we chose a stadium in Herzliya that was intimate and small, and we did not expect that we would suddenly become so attractive in terms of the audience.

In the renewed Bloomfield, in front of about 20,000 spectators, it already looked different.

From a professional point of view, the three players who returned from the senior team played in the national team, in a formation of three brakes.

Mohammed Canaan, who was excellent in Ireland, remained on the bench.

The Irish came up in a very defensive formation, relying only on explosive attacks and stationary balls.

They focused on Oskar Gloch and made it difficult for him.

The second half was mediocre, and the substitutions did not improve the balance of goals and strength either.

The professional plans did not succeed, and yet, after 120 minutes had passed, the penalties were already in the safe hands of Daniel Peretz.

A great achievement for the entire system in the football association, the coaches, the players and all the teams in the national team.

A third time in the European Championship is a respectable achievement, and we can say with full mouth that Israeli football is better than before.

This is a fact.

The extensive public discourse for years about the youth team is showing its signs.

This is the direction and this is the generation with which you can go a step forward, yes, there will be many coaches in the Premier League who will give it effect in their team as well.

Blue and white.

The success of our national teams is no accident.

It starts with the largest youth departments in the country - which do a good job with the children, and continues with the recruitment of the outstanding players to the national teams and the professionals who receive them.

There is no doubt that today things are done more professionally.

Some of the people responsible for the change are also foreign coaches who came to our football.

In Maccabi Tel Aviv, for example, there was management of foreign coaches for many years, and also in the national teams.

The big improvement is in the players themselves, who today treat their careers as footballers more professionally and invest in their development also personally, with the help of personal trainers, professional consultants and agents.

The public of soccer fans is exposed to the industry through the sports media in a very comprehensive way, and understands very well how things are conducted.

The public wants professional, clean, attacking football.

The public wants non-violent sports, but sports that will simply be a show.

Now you can take Israeli football forward.

The league administration must leverage the moment to create cooperation between the teams in the league on issues of value.

Not only to preach to them, but also to be an example of many values ​​that we would like to have among us.

May we have a football year full of strengthening and empowerment.

Victory is guaranteed.

Winning on penalties be like 🕺🏼🎉💪

See you at #U21EURO, 🇮🇱 @ISRAELFA

The Forgiveness of the Coaches The

forgiveness of our soccer coaches on Yom Kippur this year should first and foremost be directed inward, to themselves.

To the decision they made to become football coaches, in a world where they only want to win.

To the decision to live in the constant uncertainty that accompanies the position.

To be a coach is to create, to create professional and human harmony. In my eyes, it is also important to have human honesty in relationships.

To be a coach is to have comprehensive professional content, to have the knowledge to convey this content to the players through training and through speech.

To be a coach is to be in the moment of the game right inside it, without distractions and with a good thought.

Being a coach is also leaving the field to the unemployment office.

To all the soccer coaches in Israel, I wish it to be a year of contentment.

Just be who you are, unapologetically and with a lot of understanding.

You have the task of being in the sane place all the time - in victory and in loss.

were we wrong

We will fix it!
