Dimitris Salpigidis and substitute Georgios Samaras scored a goal each to help Greece beat Israel 2-1 in a World Cup qualifier. Salpigidis beat Israel goalkeeper Dudu Awat in the 32nd minute, shooting through defenders from outside the area after a corner kick was badly cleared. Substitute Elyaniv Barda leveled for Israel in the 60th minute, before Samaras scored from the penalty spot seven minutes later. The Israelis came alive when Yossi Benayoun came on in the second half, but the hosts, with several regulars benched, missed a string of chances at the Pankritio Stadium.
