FT - Israel 3-2 Brazil (aet)

Goals from Khalaili, Shibli and Turgeman saw Israel worthy winners as they outplayed the highly fancied Brazilian side in San Juan.

Israel also missed two spot kicks in extra time but Brazil were unable to conjure up any threat as they bow out of the tournament.

Israel now face the winners of the USA-Uruguay game in next week's semi-final.

What a game. What a performance. What a shock.

That's it...the whistle sounds and Israel have done it ....

One of the biggest shocks in the history of the World Cup as five times winners are out.

Pedroso as he hauls back an Israeli player ...

Israel are destined for the semi-final.

Senior shoots but straight at the Brazil stopper.

Two minutes still to go but Brazil now seem void of ideas.

Nascimento carded and will miss the next game should Brazil advance to the semi-final.

Brazil now opting for the long ball as they hunt this third goal.

We'll have seven minutes of added time.

Seven minutes for Israel U20 to write an important page in the nations footballing history books.

Into the last minute of extra time... We'll probably have 2-3 added minutes as Shibli is subbed for Edri.

My word, this game has had it all.... 

Still a few minutes left for the South American side to try and bag a third that would force spot kicks.

A second spot kick within 20 seconds for Israel.

This time Ibrahim steps up and slots the ball well wide. A shocker of a penalty. One of the poorest spot kicks you'll see.

Brazil offered a lifeline.

But ...wait a minute ...the keeper clips an Israel striker and the ref points to the spot again.

Madmon steps up and the keeper saves.

The ref points to the spot.

Penalty for Israel.

Israeli players appeal for a spot kick and VAR may be consulted as it appeared that a Brazilian player handled in the box.

That did look like a handball as the Costa Rican ref goes to look at the screen.

Ibrahim almost makes it four as his half volley is deflected wide ....

Running out of superlatives to describe Israel's performance today.

So, Brazil need to dig deep now as the trail for the first time in the tie.

Turgeman makes way for Binyamin (Israel switch)


For the record, Israel are very good value for their lead with the goal from Turgeman worth the admission price alone.

The whistle sounds and Israel are just 15 minutes away from creating one of the big, big World Cup upsets.

Israel lead in San Juan and that was an incredible solo effort.

What a goal from Turgeman.

Weaves past three Brazil players and slots home.

Marlon goes down after a heavy challenge and needs medical attention.

After a delay of a few minutes the Brazil player ks back on his feet and we're under way again.

3' to be added at the end of this period of ET.

Last minute of the first period of extra time...

15 minutes away from a possible shoot out.

One senses that Israel's battery levels are running low as the high press levels have also dropped off and Brazil are enjoying more possession now as the clock ticks down.

Nascimento tries an acrobatic volley and goes inches wide with an effort. 

Things have calmed down a little after a manic first two minutes of the first period of extra time.

Giovane almost makes it 3-2 as the keeper does well to push wide.

This has been a hugely intriguing game from the off.

No-one expected this level of performance from Israel and to go behind twice and bounce back almost immediately is massively creditable.

A topsy turvy 90 seconds !

Shibli sneaks in at the back post to stab the ball home

Israel hit back 90 seconds later


Nascimento scores after 26 seconds.

So, which team has got the mettle to strike first in extra time ?

Don't forget, should we be level in a further 30 minutes, then spot kicks will be used to decide the winner.

Both head coaches talk tactics as the massage team get to work on tired muscles.

All set for the first period of extra time in this U20 World Cup.

FT in San Juan.... ET it will be

Israel desperately defend and manage to repel what will be the last Brazil attack.

Israelov with a dramatic stop.

One minute to go and in the past ten minutes, it's the South American side who look stronger.

The Israel fans here at San Juan celebrate as they sense that a historic result is just minutes away.

Extra time looming in the first quarter-final of the World Cup U-20.

Who would have thought that this would be the scoreline after 90 minutes.

Every credit to Israel who have been able to match Brazil in every department.

The 90 are up with an additional five to be played.

Close to the 90 and Brazil win a corner.

Extra time seems inevitable unless the Seleçao can conjure something up late on.

Israel subs

Ibrahim on along with Navi

off: Kanchepolsky and Abed

Santos has a go from distance but once again the Israel keeper is alert and gathers well.

Less than ten minutes of normal time remain in San Juan. 

It'll be a further 30 minutes of extra time should the game remain level after 90 minutes.

Turgeman has a fine effort saved by Pereira as the win their sixth and seventh corners of the night.

Brazil go close twice and have to thank Lemkin and the keeper as both players repel goal bound efforts from the Seleçao.

Change for Israel

Senior on Khalaili off

Change for Brazil

Leonardo off - Nascimento on

Marquinhos shoots and forces a fine stop from the Israel keeper who tips the ball wide.

Shibli carded for a rash challenge

Subs for Brazil

Martins off-Giovani on

Savio off - Giovane on

Shibli has been outstanding for Israel since his introduction at the interval.

Brazil poised to make a double switch.

Inches wide as Shibli weaves through the men in yellow to create a fine opening but the final shot is over the bar.

It would be a brave man who would call the outcome of this game as things stand.

Brazil on paper are solid favourites and have impressed during the tournament as Israel have laboured at times.

But this San Juan contest could go either way as Israel have been excellent in every department.

Savio shoots and at the second time of asking the Israel keeper gathers the ball.

Past the hour mark and both teams have upped the ante in terms of attack.

Israel worthy of their goal too and a bright game on our hands here in San Juan.

What a header ...ghosting in at the back post....Khalaili scores and draws Israel level... the hero against Uzbekistan strikes again...

Israel score

Brazil go ahead in San Juan


Brazil open the scoring and it's Marcos Leonardo as he bags his fifth of the tournament.

Brazilians acknowledge Israel superiority in first half

Brazil simply haven't got going tonight with the Israeli side still looking busy and denying the men in yellow from creating openings.

Brazil do seem to have started the second half with a more positive attitude.

Brazil win a dangerous free....the ball is aimed straight at the keeper who gathers with limited problems.

Change for Brazil

Ronaldo on for Biro

Change for Israel

Shibli on for Lugassy

We're underway again in San Juan.


Everything to play for in the second half.

So, despite being frustrated by a very solid Israel, the South American sides have carved out the best scoring chances with Leonardo and Marquinhos going close.

Israel have played wonderfully, good on the ball and exerting great pressure on Brazil and not letting the Seleçao enjoy any time on the ball.

A big 45' up next.

Israel appeal for a spot kick as Turgeman goes down in the box.

The ref whistles for half time.

Ref takes a look at the watch and awards a final late free for Israel.

Danger once again for the Seleçao as Israel have threatened from dead balls.

Once again, the action is held up as Abed gets treatment after the Biro foul.

Still yet to forge a clear cut chance Israel despite their solid performance in the first 45'.

First card of the night is awarded to Brazil's Biro.

5 minutes added.

We'll play through to minute 50.

Into the final minute of the half.

We will have at least five minutes of added time as Brazil win a corner as they search for the opener.

Kancepolsky is now down and the ref has to stop the game again.

But, the best chances have fallen to Brazil as Leonardo shoots and his effort trickles inches wide.

Israel have been excellent.. pressing Brazil and displaying a quite surprisingly high level of quality as a collective and with some final individual displays.

Lugassy falls badly and the ref. halts the action.

We should have at least 6/7 minutes of added time to compensate for all the stoppages.

Brazil concede another corner and Israel press again (the Sky Blue side are leading 4-3 in terms of corners)

Great run from Turgeman as he robs the ball in the centre of the park and gets a tame shot off that is easy for the Brazil keeper to gather.

Best chance of the night falls to Brazil as Marquinhos almost puts the South American side ahead as he ghosts in at the back post and forces a fine save from the Israel stopper.

Half an hour gone in San Juan and after a nervy opening when Brazil were the better looking side, the past 20 minutes have seen the men in sky blue dominate the game and refuse to let the Seleço establish any sort of rhythm.

Israel win a dangerous free but win a corner.

Once again the side in sky blue threaten and have dominated the past 15 minutes of the contest.

Israel refuse to give Brazil a minute on the ball with the underdogs offering a high pressing game.

We've seen the Israeli side grow as the game evolves.

I'd go so far as saying that Israel are having the better of the game now as Lemkin goes very close nodding a ball from a corner inches over the bar.

Brio is upended and play is held up.

Big penalty call for Israel as Tay Abed is bundled over in the box but the match official awards a free for Brazil.

Play held up again as Turgeman is on the floor but after a stoppage from the Costa Rican ref, seems okay to continue.

The game has yet to really flow with too many stoppages.

Apart from the long range effort from Leonardo, Brazil have yet to carve out any real danger and Israel are very much in the game as we head towards the 15 minute mark.

Israel corner... The ball is swung into the box and the first time that Brazil keeper Pereira is called upon to fist away.

Play held up for a few minutes as Douglas gets a nasty bang to the head and needs attention.

The RB Bragantino man is back on his feed and seems okay to continue.

First time we see Marcos Leonardo on the ball and he has a pop from long range that forces Tzarfati to touch wide,

Israel gifted with a great chance to counter but a poor ball sees the move break down as Brazil try and play the ball out of defence with an overcomplicated move.

Brazil win a dangerous free kick but the move comes to nothing.

A tense opening with fouls interupting the flow of the game,

Off we go in San Juan....

Seven Israeli players on yellow cards and will need to watch their step tonight should they advance to the semi-final stage.

Just three Brazil players carrying yellows.

The teams take to the field and there are fans of both sides present .....

National anthem time as Israel sport their light blue shirts with Brazil in their iconic yellow shirts/blue shorts.

Am hoping the Israeli team are better players than they are singers ....

The other quarter final games

Colombia v Italy

USA v Uruguay

S.Korea v Nigeria

Not long to go to kick-off.

Israel looking to upset the odds. Brazil looking for a sixth star on their shirt.

The winner of USA/Uruguay awaits in the semi-final.

A handful of fans have made it to the Estadio San Juan for the quarter-final clash with the sun finally breaking through the earlier cloudy skies.

Israel-Brazil: match official

Juan Gabriel Calderón (Costa Rica) will oversee the clash in San Juan this evening.

The 36-year-old has been a FIFA listed referee since 2017 and has overseen major tournaments in the CONCACAF region such as the CCL and Nations League matches.

Israel starting XI

This is how Israel will start tonight in San Juan as they look to employ a 4-2-3-1 formation with Turgeman set to play as lone striker.

Team news: Brazil

Ramon Menezes has named his side for the quarter-final clash with, once again Marcos Leonardo set to catch the eye with the Santos man generating plenty of interest among major European clubs.

All set at the Estadio San Juan

The Estadio Bicentenario de San Juan is home to Argentine sides San Martín de San Juan and Sportivo Desamparados and boasts a 25,000 capacity.

Brazil gunning for sixth title

With their last WC U20 win coming in 2011, Brazil are aiming to draw level with Argentina on six U20 World Cup titles.

Brazil's top scorer Marcos Leonardo was on target in the previous round with Brazil having little trouble in dismantling Tunisia with a solid 4-1 win in the quarterfinals.

The Santos player is second in the tournament top scorer ranking and will be anxious to add to his four goals against Israel.

Brazil arrive at the San Juan stadium

The fancied Seleçao U-20 side have just arrived at the 25,000 capacity Estadio San Juan del Bicentenario and are expected to advance to next Thursday's semi-final where they will face the winners of the USA-Uruguay game.

Israel looking to shock Brazil

Israel have looked an accomplished side despite a win, draw and defeat in the group stage.

A late, late goal from Anan Khalaili saw the side from the Middle East advance against Uzbekistan in the quarterfinals to set up tonight's San Juan clash.

Israel’s route to the final eight has been less comprehensive but they have made it this far on merit. In the last-16 they knocked out an impressive Uzbekistan team and will be eager to prove themselves against Brazil.

Brazil came into the tournament as favourites to lift the trophy but were humbled in their opening game by a strong Italy side. Since then, however, they have impressed and boast some of the tournament’s most impressive young players. Santos striker Marcos Leonardo has scored four times in four matches, aided by the creativity of PSV Eindhoven winger Sávio.

Israel will be looking to make history against Brazil in the quarter-finals of the World Cup Under 20 in Argentina. The game will be played at Estadio San Juan del Bicentenario with both sides looking to secure a place in the final four of the competition.
