Israel 2 (Falkon 25, Shelina 83) Wales 2 (Harding 59,80)
A goal seven minutes from time prevented Wales from picking up their second successive win in their Euro 2017 qualifying group.
Jayne Ludlow's side were looking to build on Thursday's victory at home to Kazakhstan at Haverfordwest, however they found themselves a goal down in Ramat when Falkon gave Israel the lead with 25 minutes on the clock.
Showing plenty of determination, Wales bounced back with two second half goals. Natasha Harding equalised near the hour mark and with ten minutes to go, it was Harding who seemingly had given her side the victory when she scored her second goal.
However the lead was short lived and within three minutes, Israel were level when Rachel Shelina made it 2-2.
Wales will be disappointed having come so close to victory. After four matches in the group they find themselves in third place with four points following a win, a draw and two away defeats.
