Holland got the defence of their UEFA European Under-21 Championship title off to a winning start with a 1-0 victory against Israel in Heerenveen.

Hedwiges Maduro tapped in the only goal in the 10th minute as the hosts picked up from where they left off in Portugal 12 months ago. with a dominant performance.

However, Israel had their chances, with Chelsea´s Ben Sahar wasting a chance to equalise in the first half when, unmarked, he shot wide from 15 yards.
