Israel’s football association announced Wednesday it will file a complaint to FIFA accusing its Palestinian counterpart of pressuring Argentinian players and staff into cancelling a friendly match.

Rotem Kamer, vice-president of the Israeli Football Association, accused the Palestinian FA of “football terror” after its leader called for protests against Argentina in the buildup to the game against Israel that had been scheduled for Saturday.
