The game is scoreless in the 37th minute. Portugal has dominated with 64 percent of the possession, more shots (8 to 0), more shots on goal (2 to 0), and more attacks (78 to 22). Israel should be happy with only having allowed 2 shots on goal so far. In World Cup 2014 Qualifying, Israel got two draws against Portugal, including an equalizer off a giveaway by the Potuguese goalkeeper for a 1-1 draw in Portugal that made Russia win the group and Portugal go to a playoff, which they won.

    Portugal scored in the 42nd, 44th, 86th, and 90+1st minutes. It must be rare to allow 4 goals without allowing a goal in the first 40 minutes of either half. Portugal had a lower possession percentage in the second half than in the first half and finish with 60 percent. Portugal had more shots (24 to 4, 85.7 percent), more shots on goal (9 to 1, 90 percent), more combined free kicks and corner kicks (15 to 10, 60 percent), more passes (671 to 418, 61.6 percent), more completed passes (596 to 333, 64.2 percent), a higher pass completion percentage (596/671 = 88.8 percent to 333/418 = 79.7 percent), more attacks (175 to 62, 73.8 percent), more dangerous attacks (67 to 24, 73.6 percent), and more shots per dangerous attack (24/67 = 35.8 percent to 4/24 = 16.7 percent). Israel had a slightly higher percent of attacks that were dangerous (24/62 = 38.7 percent to 67/175 = 38.3 percent).

    Israel's next game is a World Cup qualifier at Faroe Islands on September 1, which is in 84 games. Israel has played 3 of 10 games and has 4 points. After going to Faroe Islands, Israel hosts Austria on September 4 and goes to Denmark on September 7.
