Prime Minister Ehud Olmert opened Sunday's cabinet meeting by congratulating the Israel soccer team on their 0-0 draw with England in Ramat Gan on Saturday night, saying it was an achievement. Israel now needs to defeat Estonia on Wednesday night if they are to have any chance of progressing to the Euro 2008 finals next summer. The Israeli players said they were satisfied with the point they earned against England, a team that reached the quarter-finals of last year's World Cup and the home of the Premier League, the world's top football league. "We weren't overawed by the opposition," said team captain Yossi Benayoun. "Even before the game I would have settled for a draw. It was a great occasion for the crowd. We closed down the England team as we had to and by the end, we were tiring and just tried to hold on for the draw. We now have to beat Estonia on Wednesday and then steal a victory against one of the major teams (to qualify for the finals.)" Goalkeeper Dudu Awat, who was the hero of the Israel team on Saturday night, told Ynet: "The whole team gave it their all and we didn't allow England to create too many chances. I would give the defense a rating of 10, we learned the lessons of the Croatia game (which Israel lost 4-3). Now we have to focus on the Estonia game."
