Argentina cancels friendly with Israel

The Israeli embassy in Argentina tweeted that the match had been suspended, this is due to players receiving threats from hateful groups.

It vowed to “do everything in its power in the world football institutions to make Rajoub and the Palestinian FA accountable”
