The ~Palestinian Football Association~ asks Argentina to cancel the football game which is going to be played on the 9th of June. The reason behind this request is that the stadium in which is going to be played is built on an old Palestinian village which was destroyed in 1948 during the creation of the Israeli an state.

PFA President Jibril Rajoub said about the case:
"Israel, the occupying power, has ... [acted] in contravention of universal values and norms governing the principles of sport."
Argentina has not responded yet on this case.
