On the night of October 10, the Eurosport.ru portal published an article entitled “The terrible Ilyarramendi cannon, which upset the g’uzhochki from Israel.”
Note that an article under this heading was published on the Le Buzz page, where publications with “free” headings often appear, and the section titles sound like this: “Stars, Goals, Failures, Rzhaki, Gifs, Polls, Cool”.
The post has sparked an extremely negative reaction from Israeli social media commentators, who regard the headline as clearly anti-Semitic.
The Spain-Israel soccer match took place on the evening of October 9 at the Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem. It was the last game of the 2018 World Cup qualifying round, which ended 1-0 in favor of the guests. The only goal in the 76th minute was scored by Ilyarramendi.
The Spanish national team is ranked first in the subgroup. In second place are the Italians, who will play in the play-offs for the right to take part in Mondial. The Albanian national team took the third place, and the Israelis finished the qualifying round only in fourth place.
