NFL Houston Texans' quarterback Deshaun Watson visited Israel and toured the ancient city of Shiloh on Monday, saying that "Israel is a wonderful country."

Watson was accompanied by the America's Voices for Israel group, who brought him to visit the Holy Land. He enjoyed a guided tour in Shiloh with its biblical history and even remained at the place to pray for half an hour.

"In America, Israel is sometimes presented in a negative sense of fear and terror, but when you come here you realize how wrong it is. It's fun to see the beautiful country with wonderful people who have an amazing attitude towards us. I fell in love with you," Watson concluded his visit.
