Football's Under-21 European Championships is set to kick off in Israel.

UEFA, the game's governing body in Europe, has been heavily criticised for holding the event in Israel, due to the country's alleged mistreatment of Palestinian players.

But UEFA has stood firm, saying the Israeli Football Association cannot be held accountable for the politics of the national government.
