Quotes Portugal vs. Israel

09.06.2013

Israel Head Coach Eli Rabi

"I didn't expect it to be an easy game, my players are good and professional but I knew that Portugal is going to give us a hard time. We did a good job on defence and also attack. But we are in a problem when we do take free shots. In the last quarter we did four or five lay ups that got us back to the game and I am very proud we won today and went 0-3 in this tournament."

Israel Player Michal Epstein

"As always I was happy to help my team and I think we did a great job in this tournament, but it was a hard job to do. Today it was quite difficult because it is hard to maintain the momentum for so long but we did it and got our third win and that is what is important in the end."

Portugal Player Sofia Da Silva

"I think we have a young team and we work hard. Today we tried to get the win but they were a little stronger. We made some mistakes in a close game and unfortunately we didn't win."

Portugal Head Coach Ricardo Vasconcelos

"Every game against Israel, Cohen is very good against us. The most important thing is to stop the pick and roll, and she played beautifully. She can make the three or pass. I don't know, we tried to stop her and win but came up a little short."
