The final day of the Under-19 Club’s Kiev Training Camp bore fruit as the side played well in both friendlies. In the first match Maccabi “Shachar” defeated Shakhtar Donetsk thanks to goals by Eylon Almog, Or Dasa, Eyal Chen and Tomer Altman. Later in the day the squad drew 2:2 after coming back from a 2:0 deficit on strikes by Eyal Chen and Nadav Nidam.
Head Coach Guy Tzarfati summed up the pair of contests: “I’m happy that we had the opportunity to play against two big European clubs and we gained some international experience while putting in a good performance. We were organized and played at a high level. In the two matches we played 3 different age groups and we gave everyone the chance to play at this level and gain experience. All in all it was a very successful training camp and we are happy to now return to Kiryat Shalom as a team and even stronger.”
The Under-19 side departed for their Ukraine training camp about a week ago and defeated Arsenal Kyiv 4:0. The camp continued with very intensive training sessions with the goal of improving and preparing the club for the 2017/18 season. The last day included two matches against strong European opponents, the Dynamo Kyiv and Shakhtar Donetsk youth teams. The young Yellow & Blue’s camp was a success that included solid results as as it ended on a high note.
