Argentina Vs Israel Called Off Due To Messi Threats

The eternal argument of who is better Ronaldo or Messi has been given extra spice ahead of this summer's World Cup
Palestinians only opposed the canceled soccer game between Argentina and Israel due to Israeli leaders' decision to politicize it by relocating it from Haifa to Jerusalem, the head of the Palestinian Football Association said Wednesday.
Lionel Messi and his team-mates were due to face Israel on Saturday in their final warm-up match before heading to Russian Federation for the World Cup.
"The threats and provocations directed at Lionel Messi, which logically aroused the solidarity of his colleagues and fear of playing the friendly, are no strangers to the daily life of Israel's civilian population whose sporting stars, to put it simply, have been on numerous occasions the targets of violence and attacks".
Under pressure from pro-Palestine campaigners, Argentina has canceled a controversial World Cup warm-up match against Israel in the occupied Jerusalem al-Quds amid an worldwide outcry over the regime's crimes against Palestinians.

"The best goalkeeper? I played against many, but to choose one specifically I would say (Gianluigi) Buffon, and (Manuel) Neuer..."
Palestinian FA chairman Jibril Rajoub said: "Values, morals and sport have secured a victory today and a red card was raised at Israel through the cancellation of the game".
"As far as I know, the players of the national team were not willing to play the game", Faurie said before confirmation of the game's cancellation. Jorge Faurie did not confirm the game had been axed, but told reporters in Washington on the sidelines of the Organization of American States meeting that he believed players had been reluctant to travel to Israel to play.
"The Israeli government is trying to give it political significance by insisting it be held in Jerusalem".
News of the cancellation sparked cheers in Gaza, where over 120 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since March 30, which marked the start of a series of protests demanding the right to return for those driven out of their homeland.
PFA president Rajoub also sent a letter to Argentina's government asking that the football match not include superstar Lionel Messi.
