Israel are looking for their second World Cup qualifying win in the Faroe Islands

Israel will resume their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign at the Tórsvøllur on Wednesday against the Faroe Islands.

The Blues and Whites have so far managed to win only once from three games, a 4-1 away victory at Moldova on matchday three.

With four points in the bag, Willibald Ruttensteiner's side are currently third in Group F, trailing Scotland by a point and leaders Denmark by five.

The Faroe Islands, meanwhile, have just one point to show for their efforts, won after their 1-1 draw against lowly Moldova on the opening matchday.

Since then, the Landsliðið have lost consecutively to Austria, Scotland and Iceland, but found solace in a huge 5-1 demolition of Lichtenstein in a friendly game in June.

Faroe Islands vs Israel Head-To-Head

The sides have met only thrice before, with Israel going unbeaten in all three matches.

Their last pair of meetings came in the 2006 World Cup qualifiers, with Israel prevailing in both legs with a 4-1 aggregate victory.
