Spain Soccer Federation: Israel Pitch Invaders Posed No Threat to Isco, Team

MADRID – Six Israeli pitch-invaders, including one allegedly carrying a knife, who were detained by police as they approached Spain players following Israel’s 1-0 home loss at Jerusalem’s Teddy stadium did not pose a threat to the team, the Spanish football federation assured EFE on Tuesday.

Earlier reports from digital Israeli news outlets Ynet and Times of Israel that one of the spectators who jumped the barrier at Monday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier match approached Real Madrid’s midfielder Francisco “Isco” Alarcon with a knife have been since downplayed by the federation and regional police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.

“There was no security incident. The usual security measures were carried out last night, during and after the game,” Rosenfeld told EFE.

Images from the game show the pitch invader approaching Malaga-born Isco, 25, before he was swiftly removed from the ground by security.

A total of 4.9 million people tuned into Spain’s La 1 channel to watch the game on Monday evening.

Spain has already secured its spot in the 2018 Russia World Cup.

Israel fell short, winning only three games in the qualifying stages.
