Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas has playfully offered to play Argentina after their friendly game with Israel was called off. Due to protests and ongoing concerns about the safety of the players, the Albiceleste had to cancel their agreements with the Israeli FA for a friendly game.
The Israel-Palestine issues came to the fray as star player Lionel Messi was threatened. His teammates in solidarity decided not to go through with the fixture, as per reports. The decision means the Argentine stars would need to work internally to prepare for the World Cup. They are set to meet Nigeria, Iceland and Croatia in a tough Group D when the World Cup kicks off next week.
