Kick Off 21:00 Local (20:00 BST) Tomer Hemed struck a hat-trick as Israel got their World Cup qualifying campaign up and running with an emphatic win on the road against Luxembourg. The Real Mallorca striker opened his account in the first half before adding two more after the break as Israel picked up their first victory after opening their Group F account with a draw in Azerbaijan before losing heavily at home to Russia last time out. Maharan Radi, Eden Ben Basat and Maor Melikson were also on target for the visitors. Luxembourg had a chance to restore some pride when they were awarded a penalty inside the final 10 minutes when Dan Mori handled in the area but Daniel da Mota fired over the bar.
