Argentina friendly with Israel to be scrapped

The eternal argument of who is better Ronaldo or Messi has been given extra spice ahead of this summer's World Cup

The threats, which tie into the controversial Israel-Palestine conflict, seem to have had an impact, and it is being reported that the game could be cancelled.

The twice World Cup winners face Iceland, Nigeria and Croatia in what is considered to be one of the hardest groups in the tournament.

"[Lionel] Messi can not turn his back on the Palestinian victims", said Jabareen, according to an Israel National News report.

The ambassador of Palestine in Argentina, Husni Abdel Wahed, had expressed his opposition to the friendly match, saying the match would be similar to them celebrating. the occupation.

But its status had been placed in doubt earlier, following protests by Palestinian football authorities who had urged Messi not to take part.

"The Embassy of Israel regrets to communicate the suspension of the match between Israel and Argentina", a statement said, referring to "threats and provocations" against Argentina captain Messi.

The Israel Football Association said Wednesday that Rajoub in his "brutal and physical threats" against Argentina's team had "crossed every red line", and vowed action against the PA in global forums.

"He led the Argentine national team to the gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and brought them victory at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in 2005".

Messi, he added, "has tens of millions of fans in the Arab and Muslim countries... we ask everyone to burn their shirts which bear his name and posters (with his image)". "These included video clips showing dead children".

"The right thing was done, it's not worth it".

Though Argentina have a final warm-up fixture against Israel on Saturday before the action gets under way in Russian Federation, they however hope for fancy chances in Russian Federation, despite struggling to actually clinch a spot, before Lionel Messi bagged a hat-trick against Ecuador in the final South American qualifier.

"We thank all liberals among sport people and all those who stood by us to demand the cancellation of the match between Argentina and the occupation in Jerusalem".

An official in Netanyahu's office said that Macri had told Netanyahu the issue was out of his hands, and that there was only a slim chance the game could be salvaged.

"I want to remind everyone that two weeks ago the Giro was here", he said, referencing Israel's recent hosting of sections of the Giro d'Italia 2018 cycling competition.
