Israel score early and often to earn win over Andorra

Israel kept alive their hopes of a top-two finish in Euro 2016 qualifying Group B with a comfortable 4-0 victory over rock-bottom Andorra in Haifa.

All four goals were scored in the opening 38 minutes as third-placed Israel stayed within touching distance of pool pacesetters Wales and Belgium, who remained five and two points better off respectively after also picking up wins on Thursday.

Eran Zahavi struck the opener after just three minutes, with Nir Bitton making it 2-0 with a 22nd-minute header. Tomer Hemed added a third from the penalty spot four minutes later before Munas Dabbur completed the scoring.
