Macedonia had most of the game but was unable to beat Israel in the away Group G qualifier for the European Championship, as the teams drew 1:1.

Israel scored the first goal early in the second half through its best player Eran Zahavi. Arijan Ademi evened the score in the 65th minute owing to a great cross from Ezgijan Alioski and Elif Elmas had a chance to win the game for Macedonia in overtime, but choked.

Macedonia is fifth in its group, with 5 points (one win, two draws, two lost games). The next match is on Monday, against Latvia in Riga.
