England 3 Israel 0
England 3 Israel 0, Wembley Stadium, UEFA European Championship Qualifier, September 8, 2007. England experienced few problems in defeating Israel 3-0 at home.
Israel and England had played out a goalless draw in the reverse encounter at Ramat Gan Stadium in Tel Aviv, but this match turned out be quite different. The Three Lions, who were led by former Middlesbrough manager Steve McClaren, completely dominated proceedings from the outset and got themselves ahead on twenty minutes when a brilliantly delivered cross by Joe Cole found Shaun Wright-Phillips who volleyed the ball past Israel goalkeeper Dudu Aouate and into the roof of the net. England began the second period where they had left off the first and doubled their advantage only four minutes after the resumption through Michael Owen, whose fierce shot from just outside the penalty area whistled past the ear of Aouate and into the top right-hand corner of the net. McClaren´s men kept up the pressure as the game progressed and the hosts were rewarded for their attacking six minutes past the hour mark as Micah Richards headed home a well-taken flag-kick from Gareth Barry to secure a 3-0 win against Dror Kashtan´s side. England Team: Paul Robinson, Ashley Cole, John Terry, Micah Richards, Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole, Steven Gerrard, Gareth Barry, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Emile Heskey, Michael Owen.
