Yossi On Target For Israel

MIDFIELDER Yossi Benayoun scored as Israel secured a 2-1 victory over the Faroe Islands to keep their hopes of qualifying from Group Four alive.

Yossi gave Israel the perfect start when he opened the scoring after only 48 seconds. It took until the 90th minute for Israel to make sure of the win with Michael Zandberg adding a second.

Substitute Sam Samuelsen scored a consolation goal for the Faroe Islands deep into injury time.

Israel can still qualify for the play-offs, but in a tightly packed group they must rely on other results going for them on Wednesday.
