Algerian footballers boycotted the match because of the Israeli coach

Three Algerian footballers boycotted the match between FIFA Arab Legends and FIFA World Legends due to the fact that the coach of the second team was Israeli Avram Grant.

Decision Rabah Majer, Rafik Saifi and Rafik Khalish accepted not to participate in the game, reports The Times of Israel. Although World Legends appeared to be stronger at the start of the match, Arab Legends won on penalties.

A report on the game in Qatar was posted on the FIFA website, but it was not reported that the players boycotted the game.

It should be noted that neither Algeria nor Qatar have normal diplomatic relations with Israel and support the Palestinians.
