    • 90+3' All over! Israel pick up a precious three points in Group F. They are well in the hunt in second place behind Croatia. They will wait for the result of Greece and Malta, but they will be delighted with that 2-1 success.
    • 85' Hemed so close to netting the clinching for Israel! Connected at the back post, but Vanins does well to keep the ball out. Israel cling to this 2-1 lead.
    • 72' Clock ticking down in this one. Life in this one yet, but the visitors look dangerous on the break. A win for Israel would see them join Croatia on 13 points at the top of Group F.
    • 60' GOAL FOR LATVIA! The home side back in with a fighting chance after Cauna converts a penalty with some coolness. Cohen guilty of a handball and the referee pointed to the spot. Game back in the melting pot.
    • 55' Not exactly a full house in for this one. Israel looking very comfortable for the win....and perhaps more than a 2-0 win. The visiting side pushing and probing with some regularity.
    • 46' Latvia and Israel back out for the second period. Israel with a 2-0 lead.
    • 45+1' There goes the half-time whistle! Israel with a 2-0 lead in Latvia. Well in control of that one.
    • 42' GOAL FOR ISRAEL! They lead 2-0. Tal Ben-Haim sends the keeper the wrong way from the penalty spot. Israel well in control now. Lazdins fouled Spungin and that was the right award.
    • 37' Chance for the home side, but Kaspars Gorkss heads over the bar. Was a free header. Should probably have done better with that.
    • 18' GOAL FOR ISRAEL! Benayoun slams the ball home from just inside the area. Fine finish from the Chelsea player. Israel with a 1-0 lead in Latvia.
    • 10' Israel enjoying the brigher moments of their match with Latvia in the opening 10 minutes. Israel third in Group F, three points behind leaders Croatia. Latvia playing for pride. Israel in need of a win over the home side.
    • 1' Latvia and Israel are off and running.
