The terror organization ISIS issued a new poster, which has showcased a disturbing image of the Argentine star Lionel Messi on 24 October, Tuesday.
The Sun reported that pro-ISIS media group called Wafa Media Foundation (WMF), which usually posts Jihadist's news, has posted the image. In the poster, Messi is portrayed as a criminal and crying blood from behind bars.
The poster has spread fear among football fans and it is also considered a threat to the upcoming 2018 FIFA world cup in Russia.
The ISIS propaganda channel also attached a text on the image which states, "You are fighting a state that does not have failure in its dictionary."
The poster also included another text, which looks like a mocked version of Nike's 'Just do it' to "Just Terrorism."
This is not the first poster which made the football world tensed but on 20 October, Friday, WMF posted another disturbing image. It showcased a militant, with guns and explosives and was standing near a Russian football stadium.
The terrorist organization also has put some word on the poster, which stated that "O enemies of Allah in Russia, I swear that the fire of the mujahideen will burn them, just wait."
On 13 November 2015, three explosions occurred outside the Stade de France stadium during an international football friendly match between France and Germany. Again in 2016 December, Istanbul witnessed a car bomb blast near Besiktas football stadium.
