Alon Hazan: “Proud of the character that the players discovered 90 minutes”

Israel’s young team was close to recording a huge victory in Germany tonight (Thursday) in the Euro 2023 qualifiers, but goals from Kevin Shade (89) and Jonathan Bukardt (91) arranged a reversal and set a heartbreaking 3: 2 loss for Alon Hazan’s players.

National team coach Alon Hazan He said after the game: “Very disappointed. We got to those minutes when we were 1: 2 and lost it, so obviously we are disappointed. The substitutions did help because we knew how to do the closing well. I’m proud of the players even though we lost. We can not get rid of these little things. We have another game against Latvia with the help of the name and I hope that with the help of the name we will be able to win. We knew our advantage in such a game is to try to surprise , We tried and did everything, but in the end the thought is sometimes not sharp enough and leads to mistakes.I have no claim against anyone, unfortunately we lost the points, but there is another game.

“We knew the main problem against Germany would be from the balls they put in between the lines. There were a lot of good things. It sounded like a cliché, but I’m full of appreciation for the players who played against a super quality opponent. We got to the end and somehow lost it, but we didn’t lose the tournament, We have a long tournament.Although they come and say it’s the character of the last minutes, I look at the character of the 90 minutes that preceded it.We made a quality team look bad, I’m proud of the character of the players.

The end of Podgrano will help Israel’s senior team. All the players who played today helped us for long minutes. We wish all the best to the senior team on Saturday and keep their fingers crossed. We do not want to fall or be eliminated in front of any team. We will make the players recover because they put a lot of effort here, some of them were on the steam. From tomorrow morning we will arrive in Israel. Omar Niron continues at the gate, why not? “Daniel Peretz is an excellent goalkeeper, but no one felt that he was the second or first goalkeeper, I trust Omar 100%, he is a legitimate and good goalkeeper and did the same in the Premier League.”

Ilai Almkeys, Who cooked up the first goal, said: “I’m very proud of the players, my friends, we came to fight and play football, we looked good against the European champions, it’s not something that goes on foot. It was our good game, a little bad luck at the end. We did not lose today, we learned today And that will give us a lot down the road. What characterizes this team is the ability, we have the ability to face any team. There is a good atmosphere of family, everyone supports each other and everyone is highly motivated and this is how it looks on the field. As an Israeli team we do not underestimate any game “We scored six difficult points at the beginning of the campaign against difficult teams, Latvia will not fall short of them. I hope and believe that the crowd will come to support us and we, for our part, will now start preparing to do our best.”
