Italian fans boo Israeli anthem, give Nazi salute at World Cup qualifier

The Israel football association has complained to the Italian Football Federation after two Italian fans were thrown out of Monday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier between the national teams in Haifa for giving the Nazi salute during the Italian national anthem.

Police chose to only remove the fans and didn’t arrest them. Italy supporters were also recorded booing during the Israeli national anthem ‘Hatikva’, with several others being seen taunting religious Jewish fans and spitting at them.
