Holtby impressed by Israel

    Tottenham Hotspur’s Lewis Holtby scored as Germany overcame their Israeli under-21 counterparts 2-1 at Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv.

    The match was the final opportunity for both managers to tinker with their teams ahead of the Uefa European under-21 Championship that is being held in Israel from June 5-18 - the most prestigious sporting event to ever take place in the history of the country.

    Speaking to the JC after the game, it was clear how impressed 22-year-old Holtby, signed from Germany club Schalke 04 in the January transfer window, had been with his visit to Israel – something he was told to expect.

    "A lot of the Tottenham fans on Twitter were wishing me a great time when I tweeted I was coming here with the national side and they told me I’d love it. I know how Spurs is called the Jewish club and it’s been good to come here. I’ve been made to feel very comfortable – everyone has been extremely friendly."

    "It’s a fantastic, beautiful country, especially from what I’ve seen in Tel Aviv. There are nice beaches, lovely weather, good football pitches and the crowd for the game were also fantastic. The whole German squad is really excited to come here in the summer, it’s going to be a great occasion."
