ISIS issues World Cup threats involving disturbing images of Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar
It has caused quite the uproar and security concerns ahead of the world’s biggest sporting event
When it comes to next summer’s World Cup, there is nothing more important than the safety of players, fans and everyone involved. Hosted in Russia and beginning in June, it’s the biggest sports spectacle on Earth and security measures will be at an all-time high. And probably even more so, now.
Terrorist group ISIS released a truly disturbing poster depicting Argentina star Lionel Messi laying on the ground dead with Brazilian star Neymar on his knees next to him, looking like a direct threat to the World Cup next summer. According to SITE intelligence Group, a counter-terrorism organization, the post was released by WAFA’ Media Foundation, a pro-ISIS group.
Warning, you might find this image disturbing:
