The Albanian National Team coach, Gianni De Biasi held no euphoric attitude after the beautiful and more than deserved victory against Israel, while spared no compliments for his players.
“I asked the team to achieve this success, thus this victory belongs to them. They fulfilled their duty, doing what that he mostly done during my leadership. The team illustrated the same values as during the European Championship finals. I told my players after the defeat by Italy that we would win with 3-0 score in Israel. Meantime I feel angry by the absence of a fourth goal,” said the Italian coach.
According to him this victory was in a certain way even a form of vengeance for the undeserved defeat by Israel in ‘Elbasan Arena’.
“We needed this victory, thus we did our best to win this match. You may be defeated by Italy, Spain or even by Bosnia but not by Luxembourg or Israel. The first match went in the wrong direction, but now we did everything within our power and managed to win. We aimed to take back something we lost in the first challenge,” stated De Biasi.
