Argentina's Move To Cancel Soccer Match With Israel Draws Cheers, Condemnations

Ofer Eini and Rotem Kamer, president and CEO of the Israeli Football Association, respectively, address the media Wednesday in the town of Ramat Gan, east of Tel Aviv. The men announced that the organization will file a formal complaint to FIFA against the Palestinian Football Association.

It was supposed to be a simple exhibition soccer game Saturday in Jerusalem. But after Argentina cancelled it, the would-be friendly has instead become the centerpiece of some international hostility.
