'Knife-wielding' football fan tackles Spain's Isco after World Cup pitch invasion

'Knife-wielding' football fan tackles Spain's Isco after World Cup pitch invasion

Israel, which played in its only World Cup in 1970, ended fourth in the group.

"Especially Isco, who was the subject of many positive chants and banners, as were all of the players out on the pitch".

The Israeli Football Association (IFA) has denied reports midfielder Isco was approached by a home fan brandishing a knife following Spain's 1-0 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying win over Israel on Monday evening.

He was immediately stopped by police, who weren't speculating on what his plans were.

The Times of Israel and Ynet both reported that the Israel supporter was one of six detained on Monday night after invading the field of play, and had separated from his peers and was making a beeline for the Malaga-born playmaker when police intervened.

A statement read: "According to all the information we have, there is no evidence or indication that someone was carrying a knife among those who jumped into the field".

"I do not think Spain have been welcomed to a stadium outside of their country with as much affection as they were here".

The incident occurred after the final whistle at the Teddy Stadium, where Real Sociedad star Asier Illarramendi settled the match with his first international goal.

Their qualifier against Albania last November had to be moved from Shkodra to Tirana after warnings of a potential terrorist attack.

At the age of 37 Yossi Benayoun came off the bench having celebrated cap number 100 prior to the game.

The story is completely baseless and fabricated.

That's made us feel very old.
