Israel have a 1-0 lead over Northern Ireland at the break in tonight's World Cup qualifier in Tel Aviv.
Both teams have no chance of getting out of Group F and reaching next year's tournament in Brazil.
The hosts started strongly and they had the chance to go ahead on 16 minutes, but Eran Zahavi could only shoot wide from Tal Ben Haim's cross.
Ireland were dealt a blow midway through the half as Corry Evans was forced off after a strong challenge from Sheran Yeini.
Yeini was involved in the action soon after when he drilled a dangerous low cross into the Ireland box, only for the visiting defence to deal with the danger.
Chris Brunt lashed a speculative effort wide at the other end, while a last-ditch challenge from Kyle Lafferty prevented Israel taking the lead on 32 minutes.
With half time approaching, Israel took the lead through Eden Ben Basat's powerful header.
Result: Israel stun Northern Ireland >
