Stalemate ends Israel's campaign

Switzerland 0-0 Israel A goalless draw did nothing to enhance the play-off prospects of either nation.

Switzerland and Israel failed to break the deadlock as their Group 4 game ended goalless in Fribourg.

Levy satisfied
Israel had goalkeeper Tom Al Madon to thank for earning a first clean sheet in their final qualifier as he made a string of fine stops, particularly after the 67th-minute dismissal of Eliran Danin. "I think we had a great campaign as we lost only once and had some fantastic results," said Israel coach Guy Levy. "We have a group of 21 heroes and despite Al Madon having a great game, they all deserve the credit."

Tight group
Israel lead the group by five points from France, who have three games in hand and will fancy their chances of overhauling that tally. Switzerland are a point further adrift, again with three matches to go.
