President Ilham Aliyev: Where there is a will and professionalism, where there is love of the Motherland, one can achieve what is inaccessible to others

Baku, June 14, AZERTAC

"With your victory, you have demonstrated that where there is a will and professionalism, where there is love of the Motherland, one can achieve what is inaccessible to others," said President Ilham Aliyev as he received members of the Azerbaijan national minifootball team who won the European Championship in Slovakia.

"I am sure that no one in Azerbaijan expected your victory. I don't know if you were expecting it or not, probably as the championship progressed you began to feel that it was possible. But I am sure that no-one in Azerbaijan, including myself, expected this victory, and this is the reason for the double joy of this victory. In other words, it shows that it is possible, it is possible to defeat the strongest opponents – if there is a team spirit and, I repeat, if there is professionalism and patriotism," President Ilham Aliyev emphasized.

"You faced the strongest teams in Europe. I am sure that the financial support and other advantages of those teams were many times higher than yours. Nevertheless, you have won, made us all happy and inscribed your names in the history of sports in Azerbaijan," the President of Azerbaijan noted.
