2026 FIFA World Cup Qualifier: Bangladesh vs Palestine Live Match Coverage | Football News

FIFA’s Inaction in Palestine Crisis Sparks Frustration and Criticism from Palestinian Football Players and Officials.

FIFA has faced criticism from Palestinian football players, officials, and fans for not taking action against Israel amidst the ongoing conflict in Gaza. More than 31,000 people, including 13,000 children, have been killed in the conflict according to health officials. There have been growing calls from Palestinians and their supporters for FIFA to address the situation with Israel, drawing comparisons to FIFA’s quick decision to ban Russia and Russian football clubs following their invasion of Ukraine two years ago.

Despite Russia’s strong position in the playoffs for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, they were directly eliminated by FIFA in response to their invasion of Ukraine. However, as the conflict in Gaza continues, FIFA has remained silent on the matter, sparking increased calls for action leading up to Israel’s Path B playoff final in the Euro 2024 qualifiers.

FIFA has acknowledged receiving requests for comment from Al Jazeera but has yet to respond to the inquiries. The lack of action from FIFA has only intensified the plea for the governing body to take a stand against Israel’s football team amidst the war in Gaza. In a show of solidarity, a football fan held up a sign outside Etihad Stadium in Manchester City, England calling for action against Israel. The sentiment among Palestinian football players, officials and fans is one of frustration and disappointment at FIFA’s inaction in addressing this ongoing crisis.
