Etey Shechter's goal secured a share of the spoils for Israel at home against Azerbaijan, but their chances of reaching the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals from Group F are looking increasingly slender.

Rahid Amirguliyev's 61st-minute effort put Azerbaijan in front, yet while the Azerbaijani lead lasted for just 12 minutes, a point was not the return Eli Guttman's side would have hoped for. Israel now lie three points adrift of second-ranked Russia, their opponents in St Petersburg on Tuesday night.
