U19’s a welcome opportunity to kick-start Israeli women’s soccer

On March 20, 2012, the UEFA executive committee awarded  Israel the right to host the European Women’s Under-19 champion – ship Finals.

As  the host nation, the Israel national team was granted an automatic berth in the finals. It was just as well, as the blue-and-white teenagers had never even come close to qualifying for the tournament in the past.

The underdevelopment of women’s soccer in  Israel was clearly apparent in the results the team recorded against its  European opponents, including those foes hardly known for their sporting prowess.
