And that's it. Northern Ireland done by two second half counter attacks. Another campaign all but over.
Northern Ireland getting frustrated now. Brunt fouls Natcho on halfway. Israel play a bit of keep ball.
They've got another though Brunt looks for Evans but he can't get a good enough contact on the ball.
Ben Basat with a great side footed finish but Shechter does really well to set him up. That's it for Northern Ireland now.
Israel with plenty of the ball now. Natcho at the heart of most of it. McGinn tries to win it back but it's a Israel throw.
Israel with a free kick just inside the Northern Ireland half. Natcho takes it but it's headed away by McAuley.
Northern Ireland have really pushed on in the second half. There's still time for them. Aouate down after a clash with McAuley.
Refaelov with a great finish after good work by Shechter. His little poke towards the sub allowed him the time to finish.
Lafferty with space on the left swings in a brilliant ball but it goes out for a corner. Brunt delivers towards McAuley but Ben-Haim does well.
Refaelov does well out wide. Northern Ireland struggle to contain him but his final ball is poor and Carroll collects.
All action Paterson wins the ball back again. Northern Ireland work it wide to Hughes but his cross is poor this time.
Paterson gets on the end of a ball into the area before Aouate. It looked like a clear penalty but the referee says no.
Northern Ireland still well on top but Israel look dangerous on the break. Throw in to Israel down the right. Not many men in the box.
Paterson goes down in the box. The crowd go mad but the referee waves away the protests. Ben-Haim just did enough without fouling him it would seem.
Melikson with the chance of the match. He arrives unmarked in the box but Carroll is equal to it and palms away. Very close.
McAuley with a tackle gets Northern Ireland moving forward. The ball breaks to Brunt on the edge of the box but Ben-Haim with a very important challenge.
Super play by Northern Ireland. McGinn down the right but his cross is long and took a deflection off Ben-Haim for a corner to the home side.
Israel resorting to hitting it long now. Brunt snuffs the danger out and it's a throw in to Northern Ireland.
McAuley with space in the area. He drills it into the six yard box but Paterson can't get any real contact on it.
Great run from Lafferty who goes past two defenders. He sets Clingan up but he gets under the ball and it sails over.
Gershon with the free kick but Brunt heads away. The ball then falls to Yeini but he hammers it wide from 35 yards.
Israel have not really had a chance since Shechter hit the post. All Northern Ireland since. Free kick now for Israel.
Northern Ireland winning the second balls now as well. Paterson does well down the right and Davis's point blank effort is saved. Hughes then has a chance straight after but it's cleared. Just. Israel surviving and no more at the moment.
Lafferty has a cross/shot Brunt can't control it and it slides away from Paterson. Decent opportunity. A better touch and Northern Ireland had a real chance.
Outstanding from Evans at the other end. Melikson is free but Evans covers in time and wins a free kick.
Great free kick. Israel clear to Evans but his volley is off target and Israel clear again. Unlucky. Israel don't look comfortable at the moment.
Davis to Paterson and it's a late tackle by Ben Basat. Free kick to Northern Ireland. No card though.
Israel take their time from a throw in. Good time to re group. Evans in the meantime is organising his defence.
Natcho defends well as Lafferty found space on the right. The crowd are really responding now. Israel clear just.
Clingan and Brunt combine down the left and Davis helps out. Northern Ireland enjoying their best spell of the game.
Davis with space plays a lovely ball through to Paterson but he's well marshalled and Aouate claims. Good move. Ben-Haim did well too.
Paterson working hard trying to force Israel into a mistake but Northern Ireland can't keep hold of it when they have it.
Yeini fouled and it's a free kick for Israel. Evans clears but Natcho picks the ball up and Israel attack again.
Melikson does well again down the right. Lafferty struggled to contain him this time and Northern Ireland clear.
Lucky escape there for Northern Ireland. They'll be looking to defend better than that. Goal kick in the meantime for Israel.
Israel hit the post. Melikson gets in down the right and Shechter's shot clips the outside of the post.
The national anthems have been observed superbly by both sets of fans and we will get underway shortly.
