Israel warmed-up for their forthcoming World Cup qualifier against Portugal with a 2-1 win in a friendly against Finland in Netanya.

Eden Ben-Basat put the hosts in front after two minutes, but a goal from former Chelsea striker Mikael Forsell after 86 minutes looked to have given Finland a draw.

However, a last minute strike from Lior Refaelov earned Israel a morale-boosting victory.
