We No Want Wahala O! ISIS Lionel Messi Post Threatens Nigeria vs Argentina Friendly

The chilling post released by the terrorist group, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) seems to be causing worries in the football community across the globe.

The November 14 friendly match between Nigeria and Russia, is under threat from the Islamic State, after the group posted a picture of Lionel Messi in prison.

The mockedup image of Messi in a prison jumpsuit with blood coming from his eye, has forced the Argentina Football Association (AFA) to demand for special security for their star and other members of the national team.

Another propaganda poster shows an armed fighter looking over Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium — where the World Cup final will be played on 15 July 2018.

 

President of AFA, Claudio Tapia, on Thursday met the Russian ambassador to his country, Victor Koronelli, to discuss the threat posed by ISIS, after the group also published an image alluding to next year’s World Cup in Russia, warning those who visit Russia that they will face attacks.

Tapia is working with Koronelli and another Russian diplomat, Dmitriy Belov, on additional security at Moscow’s Bronnitsy Training Centre, which will house the Argentine team for the World Cup.

The game is billed for Krasnodar in Russia, at the Krasnodar Arena Stadium.
