Israel vs. Austria has been delayed from this Sunday to the fifth of November due to "the actions that occured today in the Black Sea" said an Austrian spokesman. What does this have to do with anything? A commercial airplane took off from Ben Gurion International Airport (Near the National Stadium) and crashed in the Black Sea after being shot down by a Ukranian missle (I think that's what CNN is saying).

The Austrians have been looking for a good reason not to play the Israelis, because I think they're scared! Which ever team wins, goes on to the World Cup 2002 in South Korea and Japan.

Anyways, FIFA and UEFA granted them to postpone the game.

This Sunday, I was to go to the game and spend the day in Tel Aviv (In Israel, Sunday is a weekday, but this Sunday is a holliday: Sukkot). Oh, and 05/11 is on a Monday, when I DO HAVE SCHOOL. Thank you Austria, for F***ing up my plans.

mmmm, you´re right i´m kind of speechless about this decission linking it to yesterday´s plane crash. Anyway i gave up watching Austrian soccer games since decades because of this idiotic bla bla arguments after loosing one game after the other.
Greetings Rickster

Why didn't they play the game somewhere else? In Germany maybe?
