Israel looking good for 2003

By David Gold, July 7, 2011

Ronen Hershco believes Israel can host a successful European Under 21 Championship in 2013.

Hershco, the director of the national teams department at the Israeli Football Association, attended the recently concluded Under 21 finals in Denmark.

He said: "Most of the hotels and venues are near the coast, and Jerusalem is one of a kind, so it will be an amazing opportunity for the players, Uefa and everybody that will come.

"I know what it can bring to our country. It can show we can reach other tournaments and the precedent will be set for the national team to participate at the highest level."
