Lionel Messi and the Argentine National Soccer Team arrived in Israel Sunday evening ahead of a friendly match against Uruguay, nearly 18 months after his side cancelled a match against Israel in Jerusalem due to pressures from pro-Palestinian organizations.

A live webcast showed the team disembarking from their flight at Ben Gurion airport, near Tel Aviv, and boarding a team bus on the tarmac, without speaking to cameramen.
