Israel picked up a precious point to boost its Euro 2016 qualification hopes on Sunday, drawing 0-0 with Wales in Cardiff.

The blue-and-white registered just one attempt at goal on Sunday, but was more than content with thwarting the hosts and superstar Gareth Bale to collect a point which improves its chances of ending Group B in third place.

With Bosnia-Herzegovina beating Andorra late Sunday night, Israel needs four more points from its final two qualifiers to finish ahead of its main rival for third place and progress to the playoffs.

The top two advance automatically to the championships in France.

Israel will be confident of overcoming Cyprus at Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem in its next qualifier on October 10, but faces the toughest match of the entire campaign three days later when it visits Belgium in Brussels.
