Portugal remain second in their FIFA World Cup qualifying section after a 1-1 home draw with Israel that assures the Selecção of at least a runners-up finish in Group F.

A Portugal team showing several changes, including SL Benfica's André Almeida making his debut on the right side of defence, from the usual XI favoured by Paulo Bento went in front courtesy of Ricardo Costa's opportunistic header on 27 minutes. The hosts, though, did not build on their advantage and, with full time approaching, Eden Ben Basat punished a poor clearance by goalkeeper Rui Patrício.
