Israel remain second in Group F of FIFA World Cup qualifying after a 2-0 victory against Northern Ireland.

Denied at the death in a 3-3 draw with Portugal on Friday, Israel were under the cosh for periods at Windsor Park but ultimately prevailed thanks to goals from Lior Refaelov and Eden Ben Basat. They are now just a point behind leaders Russia having played two games more.
