    Two goals from debutant Omer Damari steered Israel to a 3-2 victory over Iceland at the Bloomfield Stadium on Wednesday night.

    Played in front of only 4,500 spectators at the home of Hapoel Tel Aviv, Damari, a striker for Maccabi Petach Tikvah, marked his first international match with a goal inside five minute.

    Damari put Luis Fernandez's men two goals up with another smart finish after 14 minutes.

    It was 3-0 after 27 minutes when Maccabi Haifa's Lior Rafaelov fired home.

    Iceland improved in the second half with two goals making the scoreline respectable at the final whistle.

    Israel manager Luis Fenandez said: "We played well in the first half, but our level dropped off slightly after the break.

    "Overall, we did quite well and the most important thing is that we won."

    Israel restarts their Euro 2012 qualifying campaign with games against Latvia and Georgia at the end of March.
