    • 90+4' FULL-TIME! Israel secure a vital win in Group F, and that is a result that puts them right back in the mixer, three points behind leaders Croatia. Euro 2012 Group F details
    • 90+1' Into stoppage time in Israel, and they look set for a vital win...
    • 81' GOAL!! Israel in front!! Great goal! Buzaglo clips a beautiful lobbed pass into the path of Kayal, who sends a looping header into the net! Great goal!
    • 71' Gershon! The Israel defender has a free header, but sends his effort bounding just wide! Should have scored...
    • 68' Ben Sahar goes on a driving solo run from halfway, but drags his shot wide from the edge of the box. He got everything right except the finish...
    • 62' GOAL!! Latvia level completely against the run of play! A high ball into the Israel box is not headed clear and bounces into the path of Kaspars Gorkss, and the Latvia captain volleys in left-footed!
    • 57' Israel are completely dominant here, and at the moment Latvia must be content with trying to stave off a second goal.
    • 50' The second half is under way in Tel Aviv, and we have just been treated to a shot of Yossi Benayoun on the bench, possibly pondering why he is not on the pitch. Israel doing OK without him so far...
    • 16' GOAL!! Israel in front, and it's Elyaniv Barda who breaks the deadlock for the home side!
    • 9' Cracking acrobatic save from Vanins to tip over Natcho's 25-yard curler! Israel so close...
    • 3' The Bloomfield Stadium is a 15,000-seater facility that is home to all the major Tel Aviv sides. Nothing to do with Blackpool.
    • 1' And it's game on at the Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv. Both of these sides need a win to maintain any realistic chance of qualifying from Group F.
    • - A note on the Israel-Latvis teams: UEFA have Tal Ben Haim both starting and on the bench. We'll assume he starts, but will keep an eye on it. Milorad Mazic of Serbia is the ref.
    • - ISRAEL: Aouate, Ben Haim, Greshon, Natcho, Kayal, Refaelov, Barda, Twatha, Ziv, I Cohen, Damari... SUBS: Hariosh, A Cohen, Buzaglo, Benayoun, Sahar, Vermouth...
