Six fans invaded the pitch following Monday's fixture in Jerusalem.

One of them, allegedly carrying a knife, approached Real Madrid midfielder, Isco, but dropped it before approaching the Spanish global team.

According to the spokesperson of the local police, Micky Rosenfeld, the Spanish players have ran no risk.

"There was no security incident. The usual measures of security were taken last night, during and after the match", he assured.

He was immediately stopped by police, who weren't speculating on what his plans were.

The home side's governing body, however, have stated that the reports of a sighting of a knife were false.

The Israeli FA later dismissed claims that the young male had been armed with a blade but promised that all six pitch invaders would face legal action.

"Everyone here has a chance [of making the squad] and we'll fight [to be there]", Illarramendi told reporters.

"I do not think Spain have been welcomed to a stadium outside of their country with as much affection as they were here".

But, in happier news, Spain's game against Israel threw up a real blast of nostalgia for Premier League fans.

Isco is a midfielder for both Real Madrid and Spain who plays alongside the likes of Cristiano Ronald and Gareth Bale in Spain's La Liga, one of the premier soccer competitions in Europe.

His spectacular effort wrapped up the points for Spain, but had no bearing on the respective fates of the two sides on display.

"World Cup? It'll be hard for me to go to Russian Federation".
