Russia 1-1 Israel: Ben Shushan forces late draw

MOSCOW, Oct 7 (Reuters) - A late equaliser from substitute Amit Ben Shushan gave Israel a 1-1 draw with Russia in their Euro 2008 Group E qualifier on Saturday.

The Russians made a flying start, Andrei Arshavin

outsprinting a defender in the fifth minute to slot the ball

inside the post from 10 metres.

Israel levelled from a rare counter-attack six minutes from

time as Shushan pounced to score after Russia goalkeeper Igor

Akinfeyev had saved from substitute Toto Tamuz.

The Israelis, who had shared top spot with England after

winning their opening games against Andorra and Estonia, now

have seven points.

Russia have two points under new Dutch coach Guus Hiddink.

Israel have not lost a competitive match for almost three

years after going undefeated in their 2006 World Cup qualifying

campaign.

The visitors, missing strikers Yaniv Katan and Omer Golan

through injury, rarely troubled Akinfeyev until Idan Tal tested

the CSKA Moscow keeper with a low drive from the edge of the box

early in the second half.

The home side dominated possession until their late lapse of

concentration cost victory.
