Barda keeps Israel's World Cup hopes alive

    Two goals from Elyaniv Barda kept alive Israel's slim hopes of qualifying for next year's World Cup finals after they beat Moldova 3-1.

    The striker made it 10 goals in 18 games in front of just 8,749 fans at the Ramat Gan.

    But with group leaders Switzerland and second-placed Greece also winning, Israel must beat Switzerland away on Wednesday and hope Luxembourg to draw or win in Athens if they are to progress.

    Barda scored either side of a David Ben Dayan goal as Israel established a three-goal cushion before Denis Calincov's late consolation for the visitors.

    The victory lifted Israel to third in the group, two points behind second-spotted Greece, who were 5-2 winners over Latvia earlier this evening, ahead of Wednesday's final round of matches in Group 2.

    Israel manager Dror Kashtan said: "I'm preparing the team for the match against Switzerland. We want to win our match and what ever needs to happen will happen.

    "This is not the time to sum up the campaign. We will do that when it is over.
