Bangladesh and Palestine face off in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier: Live updates and football news

The ongoing conflict in Gaza has led to a surge of disappointment among Palestinian football players, officials, and fans who are calling on FIFA to take action against Israel. They argue that FIFA should hold Israel accountable for the thousands of innocent lives lost, including children, and compare it to the immediate and decisive action taken by FIFA when Russia invaded Ukraine. Despite being strong contenders in the playoffs for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, Russia was swiftly eliminated following their invasion, which was upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport. However, FIFA has remained silent on the issue of Israel’s involvement in Gaza. Calls for action have intensified as many advocate for the banning of Israel’s football team as a form of accountability. Despite multiple requests for comment from Al Jazeera, FIFA has failed to respond to inquiries about the situation.
