As Switzerland drew with Kosovo, they fell to second place and can no longer win the group unless they beat Romania in the final match.
Even though Israel led from the 2nd minute, the Romanians did not give up and equalized through George Pușcaș. It was not over, and Ianis Hagi scored in the 63rd minute.
