NORTHERN Ireland will host Israel in a friendly international at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park on Tuesday September 11 (kick-off 7.45pm).
The two countries last met in a FIFA World Cup qualifier in 2013 with the sides playing out a one-all draw in Tel Aviv.
Northern Ireland and Israel have met on nine occasions with Northern Ireland winning three of the games, Israel one and the teams drawing five times.
The game comes three days after Northern Ireland play Bosnia and Herzegovina in the UEFA Nations League at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park. September 11 is also a Nations League game day but with neither country having a competitive fixture on that date the friendly will instead be used by both teams to prepare for games later in the tournament.
